MCCA is an organization created for the purpose of assisting and encouraging the growth and improvement of cheerleading throughout the state of Minnesota. It is the only governing body for cheerleading in the state that is recognized by the Minnesota State High School League.
With the 2015-16 Season ended and we are all gearing up for the 2016-17 season, MCCA met this last weekend and discussed if there would be any changes to the divisions offered for the State Competition in 2017.
The Divisions for State 2017 and 2018 will be as follows for school teams:
Varsity: Will continue to be split by Class A and AA and we will offer the following divisions.
To be on a Varsity Team students will need to be in Grades 7-12. This is different than UCA's new guidelines so when holding tryouts if you are planning on attending any UCA events, please consult their division guidelines.
Varsity Co-ed will still be offered as well, but will be added into a regular division if we do not have the required number of teams as we have in the past.
Junior Varsity: We will continue to offer Junior Varsity and Junior Varsity Non-Tumbling. To be on a JV team students will need to be in Grades 7-12. All Co-ed JV teams will compete in the regular division. This is different than UCA's new guidelines so when holding tryouts if you are planning on attending any UCA events, please consult their division guidelines.
Middle School: This will be for students in grades 5-9.
Elementary: This will be for students in grades K-6.
The format of the State Competition will remain the same as the prior two years.
