Home Pom UCA Cheer Camp & Photos


The first night there was a competition where the girls had to create a routine that had no tumbling or stunts to pump up the crowd. The only real competition was a competition squad from Kentucky who were 3 time National Champions with one cheer competition (Open Cheer I think)organization and with UCA they were 3rd at Nationals at Disney for 2008. That squad was 2x the size of our's too. I'm saying all this because we got 2nd place, and to them that is losing. You should have seen their faces. But considering what they were up against, I feel like it was a first place! Especially since we are not a competitions squad!

The first day at camp, the JV and Varsity combined won the TOP Banana award, which is something you want because you exhibit the most spirit all day!

Our squad, which includes an awesome guy this year, took home the 2nd place for Home Pom, which they completely choreographed on their own and selected their own music and made their own CD. They took home a Superior award for overall camp performance and the coup de grace was the LEADERSHIP award, for which only one award is given. That is voted on by the other squads at camp. They were so excited about that!!!!!!!
Here is a few photos of my dd and her squad from camp as well! That's what I've been doing from 7a to 11 or 12 at night for the past 4 days. I came home and went to bed at 5:30 last night! LOL!
