Testimonials from Camp

"'I have been coaching cheerleading for 43 years and have always attended UCA camps, including college, all around the south. I especially like the UCA camp at Florida State University because the camp is well organized on such a beautiful campus and my middle school cheerleaders have so much fun learning the new material. They are always excited to meet the FSU cheerleaders during the camp since most aspire to be college cheerleaders.'" Coach TerriSurfside Middle School
"'My camp experience at FSU was absolutely wonderful for me, as a coach, and my team. The staff was knowledgeable, attentive, and very encouraging to each and every cheerleader. I had the only male athlete at the event, and the staff went out of their way to make sure his needs were met as well. He actually performed stunts he had never had the opportunity to attempt before. The camp ran on time and was filled with so many opportunity to learn new skills. There were many varying degrees of skills and the staff was able to meet the needs for each team no matter the skill level. I liked that the camp offered consistency and structure. I would definitely come back to the skills camp! Great job UCA and FSU!'" Coach StacieWest Florida High School Advanced Tech
"'The camp was great and the camp staff, from the red shirts to the UCA staffers to the cheer coach for FSU, were all the very best and it has been my pleasure to work with them!'" Coach SusanMcGill Toolen High School
