WHAT IS THE ALL AMERICAN HONOR?

The 2019 Fall Sideline Cheer Squads (JV & Varsity) have been training from April 2019 Tryouts through current season! A key part of their summer immersion training happened at Universal Cheerleaders Association training camp at UC Santa Cruz. During the camp, squads from all over Northern California were qualified and certified in areas ranging from cheers and rally routines, to skill mechanics and stunts. It’s here where they develop the big skills they use as the foundation for what spectators see during Fall Season. 

While attending UCA camp, Coaches nominate squad members to try out for the All-American honor. During the week, Cheer Athletes are observed for skill readiness and character by Training Staff and Coaches. Towards the end of the week, Coaches then submit who they think should try out for the All-American distinction. 

For the first time ever, the entire group of Acalanes Cheerleaders nominated to try out earned the All-American honor! — 11 Between JV & Varsity! The entire Acalanes Sideline Cheer Program went home with high honors in multiple categories.
