This season might look a little different, but we are determined to bring you the same UCA Competition atmosphere you have come to know love, virtually. Below you will find everything you need to know as a coach, participant or spectator planning to participate in one of our upcoming UCA Virtual Competitions.
Please note this is a fluid situation and subject to change. You can also find updates in the myVarsity competition portal.
Click here to save your spot for an upcoming UCA Virtual Competition. Each virtual event is designated for teams from certain states (denoted in the event name) or teams that competed at the same live event last season.
Teams will film their routine in their own gym, football field or other area as long as it is performed on a NFHS approved surface. Routines filmed on spring floors will not be allowed. Fans are welcome to watch performance as long as you are following all of your state and local distancing guidelines.
Once routine videos are filmed, they will be uploaded to Varsity TV. There is no need to purchase additional equipment or internet services for your program – simply film on your phone or available camera! A UCA trained judging panel will score the routines in our Simple Score system. Score sheets and division breakdowns will be emailed to coaches, just like at an in-person event.
These events will then be available to watch on-demand on the event date on Varsity TV and each team will receive one FREE one-month subscription to watch! The Virtual Competition will include a FREE awards celebration, prizes, & MORE!
Below is the general timeline for all UCA Virtual Competitions. Once you register, coaches will receive more detailed information from the event director.
Coaches will receive the following email communication:
While we are no longer requiring a KEYWORD for UCA/UDA Spring Virtual Events, in order to make sure your video is formatted correctly please include the following template when filming. UCA Competition Virtual Template
Teams must submit a video recording of their routine taken in their practice facility, using the template above. Videos must be one take – edited footage will not be accepted. All 4 corners of the floor should be visible when possible and athletes must perform on an NFHS approved surface. The program must own rights to this video and consent to it being posted on Varsity TV for use in the Virtual Competition. For a list of filming guidelines and specifics click here.
Varsity TV will host this event and one one-month subscription will be given to a coach of each registered team to watch. All Varsity TV subscribers will be able to watch the event in its entirety. The awards will be FREE to all viewers on Varsity TV. If you have questions about your Varsity TV account, click here.
All routines will be judged with sound and available for Varsity TV subscriber viewing with sound for 48 hours once the event goes live. After 48 hours, the routines will be available without sound for Varsity TV subscribers. After 5 days, routines will be available free of charge without sound for the duration of the competition season.
