Testimonials from Camp

"'My squad attended UCA camp at the University of Alabama, and had an awesome week. Not only were our cheerleaders exposed to new material and skills, they were exposed to a fun and energetic environment that fostered friendships between other squads and the encouragement to improve their skills daily. The staff was amazing and more than willing to help with anything we wanted or needed. As a coach, I really appreciated the information provided at our meetings and the guidance and direction that was given by our head instructors. Attending camp at the University of Alabama was just what my girls and I needed to get our seasons started on the right foot.'" Coach CameronAuburn High School
"'Not only is UCA summer camp the best way to bond as a team, it is the best way to prepare high school cheerleaders for their season. Our squads are taught safe and correct technique that can be built upon throughout the year. UCA provides coaches and team members usable material for pep rallies as well as prepares them for games. UCA camp gives every team the knowledge and confidence to be the best that they can possibly be. What we love about UCA is the educated and professional staff that work with our teams during the week to have them reach their potential. It sets the tone for our year and we would not have it any other way than the UCA way!'" Coach AshelieSpain Park High School
"'UCA Camp at the University of Alabama is like no other. The facilities are perfect. You never have to worry about mat space or weather because everything is inside. No walking long distances from one class to another. Final Day is organized so that every team can be seen by their families. Burke Dinning Hall gives excellent options for campers and coaches and we LOVE the coaches tour of Bryant Denny Stadium. Coaches, you can't beat the hospitality and the ease of everything at the University of Alabama UCA Camp! Can't wait for next year.'" Coach AmberEnterprise High School
"'UCA summer camps are the best! I have experienced some awesome times, but I think the best is being able to see the emphasis that a collegiate UCA staffer can have on a high school cheerleader. Through private coaching, the UCA staff personal instruction to each team uniquely while emphasizing the importance of ambassadorship on and off the sideline. We have brought home most of the examples of the themed pep rallies at camp and they have truly changed our school spirit. Summer wouldn't be summer without attending UCA cheer camp!'"
