"Start Off Strong"
Since 1948, NCA has been leading the way.  Sure, we were the first cheerleading company, but we're not content to stop there.  Since we were established, we've focused on constant innovation and putting passion to work.  We're the home of the Herkie.  We invented the pompom.  We were the first to offer a cheer camp. And if you've heard the term "Spirit Stick," you know how good we are at making things catchy and long-lasting.

We want that original spirit to carry through to the cheerleaders we host at Summer Camp as well.  We're all about harnessing the passion and potential of young athletes and helping them to be the best they can be. 

Please join us at 2015 Summer Camp, a place that'll continue to strengthen skills and build bonds.  With new camp types being offered, you can fit practice into almost any schedule.  When you get here, we'll be ready and waiting to make jumps higher, motions sharper, stunts cleaner, and cheers louder.  And we'll have a lot of fun while we're at it!

NCA Staff
We hand-select the NCA Staff from across the country.  To be an NCA Instructor, you must be a great cheerleader and an even better person.  They're role models in and out of uniform, and they're all AACCA certified and trained each year to ensure that they are ready to go at your Summer Camp.  In short, if they can't get you pumped up, no one can.
