Experience UCA

For 45 years, UCA has instilled leadership skills and personal confidence in more than four million athletes on and off the field while continuing to be the industry’s leader in safety, skills and leadership – making cheerleading the dynamic, athletic activity it is today. Preparing for game day begins at a UCA Summer Camp with curriculum centered around being a Crowd Leader, Spirit Raiser, Ambassador, Athlete and Entertainer, all five of which are called upon on game day.

We are passionate about memorable experiences for young people that will last a lifetime through the glory of competition at our regional and championship events. Our events are nationally televised on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and CBS Sports to over 100 million homes and 32 countries nationwide each year.

Learning To Believe: Fossil Ridge High School

When it comes to finding success on the blue mat, a team’s reputation can be as important as the skills that are being put on the floor. Top teams at every level of the sport are constantly under a microscope, largely due to the evolution of social media and smartphones, which allow us to see any routine, anywhere, as soon as it is performed.
