Game Day Division Guidelines

The order for the College Game Day Division will be random based on the audio cues. It will consist of a Fight Song, a Situational Sideline (offense / defense) and a Game Day Timeout (similar to what was done at camp).

FIGHT SONG: The fight song should represent the traditional fight song your school does at games. Skills should be minimal, practical and crowd effective. This formation should be similar to or the same as your sideline formation.

SITUATIONAL SIDELINE: With either an offensive or defensive scenario, the squad will determine which sideline to do based on the cue. The teams are encouraged to use spirit raising props such as signs, poms, megaphones and flags. Skills should be minimal, practical and crowd effective.

GAME DAY TIMEOUT: Similar to a 60 second extended band chant that is designed for crowd interaction and involves crowd response. This is the best time to showcase your squad's energy, leadership, visual appeal and connection to the crowd.

The judges will score teams using the criteria listed on the UCA Game Day score sheet. Each team will be evaluated on a 100 point system. Click here for more information on score sheets.
