Big news college cheer and dance fans! The 2021 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship, typically held every year in January, is moving to the spring!

At UCA and UDA, the health and safety of your athletes, coaches, employees, families, and friends remain their top priority. They are diligently monitoring official information from health authorities and local governments as well as working with our contacts at the Walt Disney World Resort daily on what the championship experience will be like this year.

After receiving feedback and polling college coaches nationwide, the 2021 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship will be moving to a two-day format on April 27-28, 2021 (Tuesday-Wednesday) at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Virtual Divisions To Be Included In 2021

UCA & UDA also announced the addition of virtual divisions for the 2020-2021 season! For those that are unable to travel because of your state / local guidelines or administration, UCA & UDA will be offering Virtual Divisions. Be on the lookout for more information on these divisions coming soon!

Please note: Teams that compete virtually will not be competing head-to-head against teams that are competing in-person. 

Bid Tiers & Crowd / Spirit Tapes

UCA & UDA has also made several modifications to their policies and scoring for the 2021 Championship only. These changes will remain in place even though the event has been moved to April.

  • For the 2021 Championship ONLY, UCA & UDA will not require teams to attend a 2020 UCA or UDA College Spirit Camp of any kind in order to validate their bid that they received from their 2020 placement. This applies to Tier 1, 2, and 3 bids.
  • Crowd/Spirit Tapes will not be required for Cheer or Dance teams, everyone will be given the points for the 2021 Championship ONLY.
  • Mascots will be asked to submit a modified entry tape because their videos determine who is invited to compete at the championship. More information coming soon.

Take A Look Back At The 2020 UCA & UDA College National Championship

Please note: This does not affect the dates of the UDA National Dance Team Championship (scheduled for January 29-31, 2021) and the UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship (scheduled for February 5-7, 2021).
