Where America Cheers... and Mascots!

The Universal Cheerleaders Association works to develop the best mascots in the nation – and we want to work with your school! As characters becoming increasingly popular, what better way to promote school spirit than with a great mascot? 

College Mascot National Championship

Mascot Summer Camp

  • Train with experienced UCA mascot instructors
  • Compete to become an All-American Mascot
  • Earn ribbons, spirit sticks, medals, and trophies
  • Learn skits to entertain at pep rallies and games
  • Receive a Mascot Manual and DVD with music and skits highlighting some of the nation’s best collegiate mascots

What to Expect:

While cheerleaders are working hard to learn routines and skills, our mascots are doing the same thing! Mascots will explore such important guidelines as:

  • Character building through emotions, animation, crowd interaction, and skit production
  • Athletic sports nutrition and hydration as well as proper costume maintenance
  • Improvisational skills using various games and scenarios
  • All camp participants may also bring a prepared two-minute skit to camp – complete with
    props and music – for a chance to perform and possibly become an All-American
  • The camp will conclude with all mascots performing “Mascot Follies”. This showcases skills learned during the week through hilarious skits, line dances, and always ends with the crowd on their feet! UCA aims to make this the best week of the summer, complete with lots of laughter, fun and great new friends.

What to bring to camp:

Beside all of the necessary materials you will also need:

  • Mascot costume(s)
  • Athletic apparel to wear during camp
  • A prepared 1:30-2:00 minute skit with a theme, props, music, and a crowd appeal. This will be used for anyone who wished to try out for "All-American: mascot and a chance to perform at the Capital-One Bowl.
