I wanted you to be the first to know about some exciting news in the All-Star World. Please read the announcement below concerning NCA and CHEERSPORT Nationals.
We are excited to announce that the two largest All-Star National Championships, NCA and CHEERSPORT, will take place on separate weekends in 2009. For the last several years, running these championships parallel has been neither ideal for our customers nor our companies.
In an effort to better serve our customers, both companies have shared a mutual and keen interest in resolving this date overlap. However, a number of variables, including contracts with hotels and venues booked years in advance in cities saturated with conventions, have made this an insurmountable task.
Recently, an opportunity in Dallas was presented that allowed NCA to move its date. So, in 2009 the NCA All-Star National Championship will be February 29-March 1, and CHEERSPORT Nationals will remain on February 13-15 in Atlanta.
Both NCA and CHEERSPORT are committed to exploring similar opportunities in future years, although nothing at this time has been confirmed.
This is great news for the cheerleading industry and hope this affords more gyms to experience both championships in 2009. Please contact NCA or CHEERSPORT if you have any questions.
Good luck to everyone competing at our events next month!
