Experience UCA

For over 45 years, UCA has instilled leadership skills and personal confidence in more than 4.5 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 championship events take place at the magical Walt Disney World Resort® and are nationally televised on ESPN and CBS Sports every year.
