Varsity Spirit has produced thousands of competitive events for cheerleaders and dancers. Varsity Spirit competitions, whether at the state, regional, or national level, are held to the highest standards.
Varsity Spirit created the first high level cheerleading competition in 1980, the National High School Cheerleading Championship, to reward cheerleaders for their work on the sidelines and to create a venue in which they could be recognized for their talents and abilities.
