2018 Cheer Camps
All regular, elite and stunt performance camps will have "Game Day" instruction.

Elite Camp Option For Summer 2018
Elite camps are designed for those teams who have mastered advanced stunts and are ready for the next level. Elite camps feature faster paced stunt and transition classes (participants will advance through liberties in their first stunt class on day one), additional emphasis on spotting and safety, and faster paced cheer and dance classes. Examples of elite skills that are covered include: liberty variations and multiple ways to get to a liberty, full up and 360 skills, various transitional skills only taught at Elite camps, as well as the new 2018 stunts and transitions. In addition, Elite camps offer an Elite Xtreme routine for teams to learn that is different from the traditional camp. Elite camps follow the same schedule as a traditional camp, just faster paced covering more material and information.

Any team interested in enrolling in an Elite camp will be required to "qualify" for the elite camp by demonstrating their current stunting skills to their big brother/sister. Teams will be required to show an Extension with a pop cradle before they can participate in the Elite camp. (Any team who can’t meet qualifying skills will simply be moved to the traditional camp sessions). After the initial qualification the fast paced fun begins.

The Elite camp option will be offered at the following camps:

  • Kansas Wesleyan University – June 5-8 (Cheer)
  • Kansas Wesleyan University – June 11-14 (Cheer)
  • Butler Community College – June 12-15 (Cheer)
  • Butler Community College – June 18-21 (Cheer)
  • Kansas Wesleyan University – June 26-29 (Cheer)

Stunt Performance Option
For competitive teams interested in a stunt and performance based camp. Curriculum is based on creative stunts, transitions, and performance for all levels and sizes of teams! This is a routine based camp where teams will leave camp with a performance routine that will consist of a short dance and a Jump, Tumble, Stunt, and Pyramid Transition that will be approximately 17 eight counts in length. Cheerleaders will still have some traditional aspects of camp such as Team UCA, the Homecoming Rally and of course All American Selection.

Special Classes include:
      • Strength and Conditioning
      • Flipping Pyramid Class
      • Stretching and Flexibility

The Performance Stunt option will be offered at the following camps:

  • Kansas Wesleyan University – June 11-14 (Cheer)
  • Butler Community College – June 18-21 (Cheer)

Our summer camps are for coaches, sponsors and advisors too! To prove that, we offer a special tuition reduction for ONE adult. Additional information is provided on registration forms.

     20+ students – no tuition charged
     10-19 students – ½ tuition charged
     0-9 students – full tuition charged

Schools are strongly urged to send qualified adults who are serving as advisors or chaperons with their students to camps. These individuals will be responsible for their students. Each day a special teaching session for coaches and advisors will be conducted by UCA/UDA personnel.

Spirit Safety Meetings are Required
Spirit safety meetings for head spirit coaches/advisors (grades 7-12) will be conducted at all KSHSAA Summer Cheer/Dance Camps and all fall Spirit Spreader Clinics (click on the “Spirit Spreader Clinics” link to the right to find out dates and sites of fall Spirit Spreaders). All head cheer/dance high school and junior high coaches are required to attend a spirit safety meeting in person or online.
