UCA Introduces Game Day Live To NHSCC 2020!

The Game Day Championship at the UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship is growing!

Last season, more than 400 teams competed across 17 different Game Day divisions for one spirited day of competition. In 2020, spirit squads will have the chance to compete in the brand new Game Day Live division! 

Inspired by the sights and sounds of a school’s Friday night football game, this new division takes the current Game Day Competition format – Band Chant, Situational Sideline, Crowd Leading and Fight Song – to the next level with LIVE MUSIC from your pep band.


About Game Day Live

Take your school’s game day experience to the competition floor at the first ever Game Day Live Championship on February 7, 2020, at the Walt Disney WorldⓇ Resort.

The Game Day Live performance consists of four elements—Band Chant, Situational Sideline, Crowd Leading and Fight Song—combined in a 3-minute performance by the pep band and cheerleaders, just like the current game day format. 

The pep band will have an additional 30 seconds during both the “run on” and “run off” of the cheerleaders to be judged on playing original, spirited music. Together, the entire performance may not exceed 4 minutes.
