Squad Credentialing

As the partner in building strong school spirit programs, the squad credentialing program has been developed in conjunction with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Our history with the NFHS has spanned more than twenty years, and we share the same values. The Varsity Spirit/NFHS Squad Credentialing program is taught at our camps every summer and focuses on the importance of safety, leadership, and the five key pillars to a successful spirit program.

Our Staff

  • Staff are selected based on their skill, knowledge, experience, and teaching ability.
  • Coaches and school administrators recommend the staff from the nation’s top college programs. More collegiate level instructors teach our camps than any other camp company.
  • Staff are trained using hands-on instruction, and most have attended camp as a cheerleader or dancer themselves!
  • Staff is knowledgeable of new technique, legal liability issues, medical responsibilities, nutrition, hydration, environmental safety and many other topics relative to practice and performances
  • Staff instructors are educated in the best safety practices, and all staff instructors are AACCA certified, Level 2 background checked, and knowledgeable about concussions.

Partners in Coaches Education

  • Guided by the Varsity Spirit staff at every camp, coaches will receive the most comprehensive education and hands-on training available, including classes offered in leadership, supervision, skill techniques, safety training and administrative skills.
  • By attending a Varsity Spirit summer camp and completing coaches training, school coaches are eligible to receive $1 million in secondary liability insurance to protect them throughout the year.
