Testimonials from Camp

"'Every year we come away excited, spirited and prepared for the upcoming season. Learning new cheers, chants and dances are just one of our squad’s favorite parts of camp. It’s so exciting for them to get to know our Big Brothers and Sisters, they make us feel like family. The one on one stunting help is the best! The staff is extremely knowledgably and so patient and willing to help.
UCA Camp coaches meetings are so informative. We get to meet other coaches around the state and in our conversations we realize our celebrations, anxieties, and concerns are all the same. The staff helps us iron it all out to create a better cheer opportunity for our kids.
The facility is amazing with great accommodations, great food choices, and everything is withing walking distance.'" Coach IndiaRichmond High School
"'The UCA Staff at camp were amazing! So many of them went above and beyond for my girls so that they left feeling confident and game ready! The individualized private coaching we got for sidelines, cheers and the Rally Routine was so awesome. The one-on-one time is what I look forward to most as a coach so that I can focus with my girls on improving all the important details while we practice. Coaches meetings were the most productive they have ever been. Every request we made was given attention to and worked into the schedule. Kudos to UCA for always making summer camp so memorable for my teams! We can't wait for next summer!'" Coach MattHoggard High School
"'We had a wonderful time at the Ball State University UCA camp and we will definitely be back!'" Coach HannahTerre Haute South High School
