    High School New here. Male cheerleader. First time cheering

    I’m excited. I tried out for the cheerleading squad at my school but I am the only boy on the squad. I’m a little nervous. I’m not going to lie. Most of the girls like me and consider me a friend but I am nervous. This will be my 1st year cheerleading. Just wanted to post. Any advice?

    College Possible new rule regarding routines at the 2024 UCA College Nationals

    I heard rumors that beginning next year that UCA no longer requires college teams to perform a cheer in their routines (It's still reportedly required for high school teams, however). Thoughts?

    High School New Rules

    I know it's a bit early to discuss new stunt rules for HS, but I saw a UCA instructor post a handspring full up to extension and say it's going to be legal for HS's next year! If that's true, I can't wait to see teams try it!

    All-Star Moving on.

    How do you conscience your athlete to move on from a gym? We have been here for 4 season and this season will be our last.

    All-Star Mean Moms, You Can't Sit With Us

    MEAN MOMS, you can't sit with us. Sometimes cheer moms can be more clique-ish than the athletes. Not all, but a handful.
