2015 VHSL and UCA Cheerleading Camps

The VHSL in partnership with Varsity Brands and Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA) is sponsoring the 2015 VHSL/UCA Cheer Camps.  The 2-day commuter camps provide an opportunity for teams to experience customized stunt training in accordance with NFHS and AACCA safety guidelines.  Coaches will learn proper skill progressions and receive additional safety training during a special coaches' education seminar.  The seminar also promises valuable time for questions and answers regarding the 2015 rubric and score sheets.

You do not want to miss this opportunity for hands-on training and support!
