Though both competitions have similar goals, teams across the country have made their preference in either UCA or NCA.

Depending on which cheerleader you ask, one will be stated as better than the other. On a surface level it’s easy to see that UCA can be the more traditional side of cheerleading mainly focusing on stunts and cheers and NCA can be more of the all-star side of cheerleading with more focus on dancing and high energy pyramids.

What’s more important, leading the crowd in a cheer or making stunts more challenging or entertaining for the cheerleader?

Every cheerleader will give you a different answer to that question, but this concept is what makes the difference in UCA and NCA.

So when it comes to the annual Nationals competitions hosted by each organization it’s definitely interesting to see what teams will come up with.

For NCA and UCA, there are a lucky group of experienced cheerleaders who get to travel throughout their home state and teach cheerleading to younger squads.

Being a member of staff allows those cheerleaders who have been doing the sport for many years to share their knowledge with others.

Members of staff work together to come up with new stunts to teach as well as learn various cheers and dances to teach to all of the campers throughout the summer.

As a member of NCA or UCA Staff these cheeerleaders are looked up to by middle school and high school cheerleaders throughout the country.

Cheerleaders don’t have professional athletes to look up to, we look up to our cheer camp instructors.

The Universal Cheerleading Association  is the primary source of cheerleading throughout the country and around the world.

From competitions to summer camps, UCA offers everything a cheerleading team needs to be the best!

Since 1974, UCA has offered cheer camps, training, safety tips, uniforms, competitions  and everything cheer related. Founded by Jeff Webb, this association is still growing and allowing the sport of cheerleading to become more and more popular.

Taking elements of dance and gymnastics to create a foundation within the sport of cheerleading, UCA was the first to set the standard for the sport.
