Dates Set for Nca/baylor Cheerleading Camps

June 13, 1996

The National Cheerleading Association (NCA) will sponsor three cheerleading camps for high school and junior high cheerleaders on June 27-30, July 1-14, and August 1-4 on the Baylor University campus.

The first session will be a Christian cheerleading camp. The second session will be a dance camp, and the third camp will be the standard cheerleading camp.

The camps will focus on the development of personal skills, teamwork, and technical and motivational aspects of cheerleading.

On the first evening of camp, the squads will compete for a bid to nationals, which will be announced on the final day of camp.

On the third evening of camp, All-American tryouts will be held. Girls must meet certain qualifications in order to tryout. The girls who achieve All-American status will qualify to travel to various bowls across the United States, Ireland and Australia.

On the final day of camp, the top five teams of the week will be announced.

The cost for camp is $176 for overnight campers, $156 for advisors and $100 for commuters. The participants will practice at the Ferrell Center.

Local area schools attending the camps are Lake Air Middle School, St. Louis Junior High School and Waco Christian Fellowship.
