My daughter is interested in the University of Louisville and cheering there. I have contacted the coach with no response as of yet. She still has one year to go, however, we would like to know the criteria and what others have experienced.

probably the best program in the country as evident by their many national championships, probably very tough to get on the team along with their dance team. Its the big time, good luck.

I certainly hope you're referring to UK's program and not UofL's. University of Kentucky cheerleading squad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Although it seems like a minor issue, both UK and UofL fans really don't like being confused with each other.

Why does there always have to be some UK fan poking their nose into things that don't concern them? No they are talking about the University of Louisville. UK is in the UCA while U of L is in the NCA. They don't even compete against each other but if you have ever compared the two when watching, Louisville's routines are much more athletic overall as far as involving everyone on the squad. They have championship level cheerleading and dance teams.

Default Oh, and since you like to use Wikipedia....

Cheerleading
The cheerleading squads are also a national powerhouse, with the co-ed squad winning 14 NCA (National Cheer Association) championships since 1985 and the all girl squad winning 6 consecutive championships since 2001.
The teams are coached by James Speed, Todd Sharp, Misty Hodges.
The Cardinal Bird Mascot also falls under the jurisdiction of the University of Louisville Spirit Groups. The "Bird" also competes with the cheerleaders in national competitions and makes regular appearances in the Louisville Metro Area.
The University of Louisville Spirit Groups hold more national titles than any other sport offered at the University.

What it basically comes down to is if you think the NCA or UCA is the better association as far as competition goes collegiately.

I, personally, am on university of louisvilles all girl team, and yes, the comments above are very true. it is indeed very hard to make the team, you have to train very hard, and tryouts are 3 days. Then if you make the team, congrats, but that was just the beginning of hard practices during tryouts. You then have two work weeks over the summer which consists of being in the gym for almost 12 hours a day having 3-a-day practices. However, our teams are like families. We do everything together and have lots of fun at games and just going out as friends. Its an honor to be called a louisville cheerleader.

and to the kentucky thing... why even try to compare? not trying to sound cocky, but we're way more legit than uk

If UL isn't recruiting your daughter already, then she doesn't have much of a chance I'm afraid. One of the top cheer-leading squads in the country.

The rivalry knows no bounds. Cheerleading smack talk. hahah.

To the OP, I think the previous poster had it correct. It's a pretty competitive sport. It takes more than just signing up.

Honestly, I don't understand competitive cheerleading one iota, but you might want to try WKU or a school like that.

If the one Louisville's in is more legit, how come the one Kentucky keeps winning is the only one they ever show on tv? I've never even heard of the NCA. Sounds like something splintered off by the teams that could never win anything at the UCA.

The NCA has been around since 1948, so it has a little more tradition. (UCA founded in 1974.)

Quote:
The NCA was founded in 1948 by the "Grandfather" of cheerleading, Lawrence Herkimer. The NCA is the first organization to hold cheer camps with the purpose of bringing cheerleaders together to learn new skills under qualified instructors.
National Cheerleaders Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The UCA is hosted by Disney, who has a link-in to ESPN. That's why they are on TV more often, and not because either is better than the other.

Both are fine organizations.
