In addition to opening registration for our in-person 2021 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship April 27-28th at the Walt Disney World Resort, we are excited to be able to offer Virtual Divisions for those teams who are unable to join us in Orlando. The deadline to register for the virtual competition is April 6th.
To register for the Virtual Divisions, pre-approval is required. Once you have been approved, you will receive the link to register for the Virtual Divisions. All teams must submit a letter on school letterhead from your school administrator for approval. Please include in the letter your school name, coaches name and why you are unable to attend the event in-person. Please submit all letters to College@varsity.com.

FILMING, TEMPLATE & ROSTER INFORMATION
We’ve created a step-by-step PDF guide, HERE with filming requirements and tips. All teams must submit an official team roster, eligibility form, USA Cheer documentation, along with release waivers for each athlete competing prior to receiving the college template for the video. The coach will be required to hold up the college template at the beginning of their routine to verify the Team Name, Divisions, Athletes and Date Filmed. The routine can be recorded any time after you receive the college template. You do not have to have a keyword for your video.
The Virtual Competition will be $100 per person. For those teams participating in both the performance divisions and Virtual Game Day Competition, it will be an additional $30 per participant.

Please know that together, with the Walt Disney World Resort, we’ve made many updates to the championship experience based on the guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies. Before you register, it is imperative that you read everything carefully and make sure you share this information with your athletes and parents. Please know that this is a fluid situation and subject to change. Click here to read the Championship Experience Updates.
At UCA, the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, employees, families and friends remains our top priority. We are diligently monitoring official information from health authorities and local governments as well as working with our contacts at the Walt Disney World Resort daily on what the championship will be like this year. Below are several of the experience updates you can expect to see. (Please note this is a fluid situation and subject to change.)

For the 2021 Championship ONLY, we will not require teams to attend a 2020 UCA or UDA College Spirit Camp of any kind in order to validate their bid that they received from their 2020 placement. This applies to Tier 1, 2 and 3 bids.
Crowd Tapes will not be required for Cheer teams, everyone will be given the points for 2021 Championship ONLY.
The judges will score teams using the criteria listed on the UCA Game Day score sheet. Each team will be evaluated on a 100 point system. For more about Game Day, click here.
To help manage park capacity, the Walt Disney World Resort has introduced the Disney Park Pass service, a new Theme Park reservation system. In order to make your Theme Park reservations, you will need a My Disney Experiences account and valid Theme Park admission linked to it. Once you are paid in full, approximately 7-10 business days later, Varsity Spirit will send you a ticket confirmation order number. Then, simply create a My Disney Experience account and select the dates and Theme Parks you wish to visit. To enter a Theme Park, both a reservation and valid admission for the same Park on the same date are required. Please note that reservations are limited in capacity, subject to availability and are not guaranteed until confirmed. If the first park you would like to attend reaches capacity, you can make a reservation for another park and then “hop” to your top choice after 2PM that day.
Park Reservation How-To Resources:
Please note: There is a 25 person/ticket maximum on managing/linking per unique My Disney Experience account. And in the PDFs above, MDX is an abbreviation for My Disney Experience.
Team Forms must be completed and scanned/emailed to Jadyn Ballard firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 3 weeks prior to the event. Spectator forms must be turned in at registration in Orlando. Coaches, please send all completed forms in together when you have collected one from all attending athletes and coaches. We cannot accept forms individually from parents.
*** Do not send dropbox, google docs, etc. Team Forms must be emailed in a PDF or brought to Orlando.***
Team Forms (Coaches only)
The option to purchase Discounted Park Tickets is now closed. Varsity Spirit will not be selling or have access to Disney Park Hopper Passes in Orlando. If you have not already purchased a Disney Park Hopper pass through Varsity Spirit that includes the ESPN Complex and would like to attend the competition, you will need to purchase a single day “ESPN Only” pass.
We will be providing the link to this Disney Store April 16th, 2021, to the contact for each team attending and will also post it here on the website under ESPN Only Tickets. The ESPN box office will not be open on-site during the competition so all tickets must be pre-purchased through this site.
