The Most Spirited Weekend Is Here!

One of the must-watch divisions of the weekend is USA’s trademark “Crowdleader® Team” division.

The Crowdleader® Team division focuses on UNITING a school's spirit squad into one high-energy performance! In true “United” Spirit Association fashion, teams have the option of having their whole program on the floor together for a dynamic performance showcasing both Varsity and Junior Varsity, the cheerleaders, song/pom, dance, pep flags as well as mascots and drum majors. 

In 2022, Villa Park High School won the Small Crowdleader Teams division, Xavier College Preparatory High School won the Large Crowdleader Team division, and Downey High School won the Co-Ed Crowdleader Teams division!
