Get Ready For Game Day: UCA & UDA College Nationals

History will be made at UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship when the first-ever game day champions will be named.  

Teams competing in this brand new division will take their sideline traditions to the mat to display how they lead their community and fans at their schools.

During the championship, teams will perform their traditional school's fight song, a situational sideline and a game day timeout. The athletes are encouraged to use signs, flags, megaphones and poms to encourage the crowd to cheer along. 

The preparation for the championship started at UCA & UDA College Spirit Camp this summer. Spirit squads learned game day timeout routine, prepared a sideline and perfected their traditional school fight song.

Each performance is limited to 3 minutes and should include skills that influence crowd participation. Teams will be evaluated on their ability to lead the crowd, proper game day skill incorporations, execution of skills, motion technique and the overall routine.
