OLLU Spirit earns NCA and NDA Bids to Nationals

The OLLU competitive cheer and dance programs both were awarded bids to Nationals in the prior weeks, which will be held in Daytona Beach, Fla., next spring from April 10-14.

This was the third year that OLLU spirit hosted the National Cheer Association (NCA) and National Dance Association (NDA) on campus for the training camp. Head Coach Crystal Brock commented, “Team camp with the NCA and NDA allows our student athletes to be challenged with new skills and become stronger technically as a team. We face many hurdles that encourage students to communicate and serv each other. Last year, in our first NCA nationals’ appearance, we made OLLU proud by representing our campus and community. We want to make history this year and come back with hardware and bragging rights. We are excited for the new year and grateful for all the support.”

Assistant Coach Joe Gonzalez helped Brock prepare for the upcoming training camps. 

The competitive cheer and dance teams will compete in Nationals for the second consecutive year. Both programs have qualified three separate times now, but the COVID pandemic haltered the first year of competition. OLLU spirit will perform at various sporting and community events throughout the upcoming seasons.
