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:

  • Athletic sports nutrition and hydration as well as proper costume maintenance
  • Improvisational skills using various games and scenarios
  • 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

Beside all of the necessary materials you will also need:

  • Your mascot suit and any costumes you may want to wear
  • Plenty of dress out clothes (you will be getting sweaty)
  • Water bottle to stay hydrated
  • 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 Mascot

Mascot All American Tryout Information

  • A 1:30-2:00 minute skit is required
  • The skit must have an overall theme, crowd interaction, and elements of surprise
  • The skit must be choreographed to music and props
  • Skits may include live assistants (mascots, cheerleader, dancers, etc)

Music Guidelines for All-American Skit:

Please visit varsity.com/music for updated information about the Music Guidelines and what options you have to bring to a UCA Summer Camp. If you have any questions, please contact your State Director.

*These updated guidelines should not be construed as legal advice. These are only the guidelines for using music at Varsity Spirit events. Using music without the appropriate permissions from the owner(s) of the recording and underlying musical composition is complicated and may subject the user to copyright infringement liability. If you have any questions about the issue, you should obtain independent legal counsel. More information regarding the 2016-2017 competition season will be available soon.
