NCA Camp Curriculum is based on core principals that ensure cheerleaders learn the proper safety technique and develop a strong foundation. Check out the top notch curriculum being taught at NCA Camps! We have programs to fit the needs of all teams.


    NCA sets the standard for safety with specific safety classes that provide hands-on training for the entire team. Teams learn proper safety techniques to ensure safe practice and performance all year long. NCA Staff conducts skill checks to direct team members to the stunt class that is right for them. Stunts are taught in progression and drills are emphasized to ensure proper technique. Teams at camp even take part in a Safety Awareness Test to reinforce the importance of safety and new regulations.
    NCA Stunt Classes, organized by skill level, guarantees your team will receive the attention and help they deserve. Teams can choose to concentrate on Game Day Stunts or learn plenty of innovative Performance transitions. NCA will perfect your athletes' technique, which will guarantee safe stunting for the entire year!
    NCA offers a variety of Game Day and Performance-style cheers and chants, developed by the most well known choreographers from across the country. Our material is updated with the most current cutting-edge techniques so your team will have a fresh new look when they leave camp.
    Who doesn't love to see great jumps! NCA provides TWO specialized Jump Classes giving personalized instruction and drills to build technique for Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced jumps.
    Dances are always a favorite at NCA. Start out with the always memorable Spirit Dance and then pick other dances in our Specialty Classes. Teams that attend camp will receive a 2013 Curriculum DVD that includes all 12 of the NCA Dances.
    One-on-one time set aside each day so your NCA Buddy can help you with whatever you choose...evaluation material, stunts, cheers, dances, or material from home - you choose!
    Every one loves basket tosses! With safety as our #1 concern, each team will first check-off the 5 steps that it takes to throw the perfect basket toss and then progress to those crowd-pleasing tosses.
