Varsity is pleased to announce the National School Spirit Day on September 9. This day has been designated a national day of community involvement to encourage school spirit teams to take on high profile roles by performing visible acts of service in their schools and communities. Community service projects are already a big part of many cheerleading and dance team programs, and this day offers a chance for teams to lead by example in their home towns.
Created by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), one of the Varsity camp and event companies, National School Spirit Day will be promoted heavily at camps throughout the summer, with instructions on how cheerleaders can encourage participation in their home towns. Using an online tracking system, cheerleaders will be able to participate in any community service project they choose, and log their project hours on the online service tracker.
The goal of this day and program is to encourage a minimum of 10,101 cheerleaders to perform 9 hours each of community service by September 9. This will yield 90,909 hours of service to worthy causes everywhere. UCA will submit the participation numbers and results to the Guinness Book of Records.
Varsity and UCA have a long history of giving back to the communities that cheer with them, and have teamed up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association for more than 25 years. This September, UCA staff members will perform at the MDA’s Labor Day Telethon and help kick off National School Spirit Day.
