Golden Opportunities in the Golden State

California is known for its close ties to the entertainment industry, it’s almost perfect weather year-round, iconic beaches…. and extremely talented cheer and dance teams!

With a 67 year history of innovation and breaking new ground in the world of spirit, the United Spirit Association continues to lead the way. You may not expect a company with a strong focus on Junior High, High School and Collegiate cheerleading and dance teams to also provide so many opportunities and advantages to All Star athletes as well, but the USA does with its series of USA All Star regionals, Classics, Opens and the USA All Star Championships. 

This season the United Spirit Association will celebrate the 21st anniversary of the USA All Star Championships, the largest All Star Cheer and Dance Championship in the western United States. And not only does this create an unbelievably memorable competition stage for performers of all ages to experience, they provide over 50 opportunities to end of season events truly making them the gateway to The Summit Championships and the USASF World Championships!

Varsity All Star introduced The Summit All Level National Championship in 2012 which changed the world of all star cheerleading. USA has supported The Summit since day one and continues to offer Paid, At-Large and Wildcard bid opportunities. Last season Varsity All Star introduced The Dance Summit, which allowed USA to celebrate and award our all star dance teams with the opportunity to take their routines to the next level! And brand new this season, the USA continues to support The Summit as we award Paid and At-Large bids to the National Small Program Association, D2 Summit in Tampa, FL.

Summit Bids Awarded by the United Spirit Association this season:
                
The Summit Wildcard Bids: 21
The Summit At-Large Bids: 10
The Summit Full Paid Bids: 5
NSPA D2 Summit At-Large: 21
NSPA D2 Summit Paid Bids: 2
Dance Summit At-Large Bids: 21

As a west coast brand, we are very honored and excited to provide the opportunity for so many of our lower level cheer and non-worlds division dance teams to take their routines to a larger stage and show the world what the west coast has to offer!

The USA is also a proud supporter of the USASF, the governing body and leaders in safety for all star cheer and dance. The United Spirit Association was among the original event producers to support the Cheerleading and Dance World Championships since its creation in 2004. And we take pride in having teams represent our brand on Paid, Partial-Paid and At-Large bids on both the Cheer and Dance world stage every year. 

USASF World Championship Bids Awarded by the United Spirit Association this season: 

Cheerleading Worlds At-Large Bids: 4
Cheerleading Worlds Paid Bids: 2
Dance Worlds Partial-Paid Bids: 3
Dance Worlds At-Large Bids: 5

With almost one hundred bid opportunities to end of season events throughout the season, the USA provides many golden opportunities to teams who want to make the climb or take over the globe! Our focus is on providing fair, affordable and fun events while creating lifelong memories for young people. We celebrate the ability we have to offer so many bids to high caliber and respected end of season events!
