Summer is finally here and that means sunshine, camp, and all the free time to binge-watch your favorite tv shows and documentaries!

Looking for ways to spend your time? We put together a list of seven Varsity TV original documentaries that are a must-watch over your summer break.

1. All Or Nothing: Desoto Central

Desoto Central High School is the two-time defending national champions in the Super Varsity Game Day division at the UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship. They're back and ready to give it their all!

The team didn’t perform their best at the 2019 UCA Dixie Championship regional competition earlier on in the season, and they’re determined to not fall short in their own game again.

The team is familiar with the feeling of winning after winning the Super Varsity Game Day division in both 2018 and 2019. No one has ever received back-to-back-to-back titles in the prestigious division, and Desoto Central is going for the three-peat!

2. Going For Gold: USA Coed | Season 4

USA Cheer sets the bar high every year at the ICU World Cheerleading Championships. The Coed team always puts the most elite skills in cheerleading out on the mat, which can also come with a lot of risks.

In 2015, USA Coed lost for the very first time. It was a turning point for coach Leroy McCullough and his coaching staff. They have used the loss every year as motivation and have been successful on the mat since that year. Will the U.S. National Coed team bring back another Gold Medal for the USA in 2019, or will they be defeated once again?

Follow the 2019 USA Coed Team through tryouts, training, and ICU in the 3-part series Going For Gold: USA Coed (Season 4)!

5. Making The UCA & UDA College Demo 

Every summer, the UCA & UDA College Staff head to Texas to kick off the first camp of the summer. The Staff who are there to teach camp come together four days before the teams arrive to create the iconic College Demo; a demonstration of dance routines, elite pyramids, stunts, and baskets choreographed in synch.

The College Demo was the first cheer and dance routine put to music in the mid-70s and has since evolved into a camp kickoff that college cheer and dance athletes look forward to every summer.

This two-part documentary takes you through the process of making the college demo and the final performance. The Staff has to be perfect, and so does the product they put out on the mat.
