MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Varsity Spirit ? the global leader in cheerleading, dance team and band apparel, camps and competitions and yearbook, and a division of Varsity Brands, the market leader in team sports and school spirit ? is pleased to announce that the 2024 National High School Cheerleading Championship took place on February 9-12, 2024, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at The Walt Disney World®.

The National High School Cheerleading Championship, produced by Universal Cheerleaders Association, a Varsity Spirit brand, is the pinnacle of cheerleading competitions for high school cheerleaders across the country. This year's event hosted 1,183 teams across 34 states. Teams competing at the championship must have qualified at a regional competition in 2023. Teams were credentialed in cheer safety and leadership training, endorsed by the National Federation of High School Sports (NFHS), as well as in the areas of crowd leading, spirit raising, ambassadorship, athleticism, and entertainment. Cheerleading teams are judged on their stunting and tumbling skills, crowd-leading ability, and overall performance. Teams competed in Traditional Routine, Game Day and the newest division at the championship, Game Day Live, which allows cheer teams to perform with their school's band members in a live performance setting and translate their traditions from the sidelines to the competition floor.

"This year's National High School Cheerleading Championship marks our 30th year with our partners at The Walt Disney World Resort," said Bill Seely, President of Varsity Spirit. "We are committed to elevating the student experiences through events like the National High School Cheerleading Championship and grateful to be able to provide a platform where athletes can showcase their incredible talent as they compete for a national title."

The National High School Cheerleading Championship was the first of its kind in 1980, created to reward cheerleaders for their work on the sidelines and to create a venue in which they could be recognized for their talents and abilities. This championship has been featured on ESPN since 1983 and broadcast to hundreds of millions of homes. Varsity Spirit partnered with the Walt Disney World® Resort in 1995 and has been creating unforgettable National Championship experiences ever since.
