Testimonials from Camp

"'Not only did I love going to camp as a cheerleader but I might love it even more on the coaching side! There is #somuchtolove about UCA. Whether you're looking for a crowd involvement cheer, ripples for that visual, or a dance to get everyone's attention, you'll find it. All the UCA staff does such an amazing job with the campers and the coaches. Always making sure everyone feels important, involved, and well taken care of from many aspects. Doesn't matter if you need a band-aid, directions to the bathroom, or a question answered about college cheerleading. I always come home from camp knowing our money was well spent and we are better prepared for our season.'" CoachNorthwestern High School
"'As a High School cheer coach, it is very important to me that my teams have the best opportunities possible when it comes to sideline and competitive cheer. UCA provides that and more! I can email the State Director, Ashley Loucks, with any type of question or inquiry and will always get a prompt response! We usually attend camp at Purdue University. My girls will say it’s because of the amazing food in the dining facilities, but as a coach, I can always count on bringing home new skills and new material that we will use from year to year. The bonds and connections developed between different schools and UCA staffers will last a lifetime. Ultimately, my program is better because of UCA!'" Coach LisaNorthwood High School
"'The best thing about Purdue itself is the food and the dorms! After a long day of cheering the girls work up an appetite and good food is a must! The UCA Staff is well organized. They stay on schedule, but are flexible to change to meet coach’s needs. The staff is always great with our teams. Always upbeat, smiling when greeted and positive to work with.'" Coach ChrisLaPorte High School
"'We loved the individual attention that we received! This camp is a perfect size with a mix of skills. Cowan loves coming to UCA camp at Purdue University!'" Coach ReneeCowan High School
