NCA High School.jpg

NCA High School Nationals features divisions for every team. Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, and Non-Tumbling divisions are offered so your team can show their unique style and create memories that last a lifetime on the championship floor.

Each season, High School and Junior High teams will be competing for titles in the Performance Division, Game Performance Division, and Game Day Divisions.

Here Is A Breakdown Of The Divisions:

Performance Division

The Performance Division emphasizes the athleticism of cheerleading with a focus on visual elements such as transitional stunts and pyramids. These routines are action-packed with a display of showmanship and skill that have set the standard at NCA High School Nationals for over 25 years.

Game Performance

The Game Performance Division is an entertaining visual showcase of athleticism featuring a contemporary music section and a crowd-leading sideline cheer section where athletes use poms, signs, and megaphones to get the crowd involved. This division is the perfect showcase of athleticism while encouraging fan participation. 

Game Day Division

The Game Day Division highlights school pride by incorporating three crowd leading elements: Game Day Cheer, Fight Song, and Band Chant. 

Teams bring high energy to the mat as they engage the crowd with their voices, spirit props, and sideline skills. 

In 2019, NCA introduced the addition of Spirit Program as apart of the Game Day Divisions. Spirit Program is all about unifying the different teams within a school to create the ultimate game day experience. This division not only allows the use of traditional sideline cheer and dance teams but also the incorporation of members of the school Marching Band, Pep Band, Drum Line, Mascot(s), Spirit Group/Club, etc.
