Testimonials from Camp

"'We count on UCA to bring us the latest and greatest in both traditional and competitive cheer material! I don’t know what we would do without the wonderful guidance and support our camp staff provides us each year! They always help us to reach our team goals every summer. The staff is our favorite part of UCA!'" Coach CarrieEast Troy 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
"'The UCA Chula Vista Resort camp was my youth team's first overnight cheer camp experience, and we had the time of our lives! Everyone we came into contact with - UCA staff, resort staff, and other cheer teams from across the Midwest - were positive, encouraging, supportive, and kind.'" Coach MichelleJunior Lancer Cheer
