GCCA Newsletter


The Georgia Cheerleading Coaches Association (GCCA) was established during the 1993-1994 school year by Georgia cheerleading coaches with the purpose of educating the cheerleading coaches in the state so as to improve their skill and technique in working with cheer athletes, both support team and competitive, in the school systems within Georgia.

Today, our goals remain the same: to promote, develop, and support cheerleading, cheerleading coaches, and cheer athletes in the state of Georgia; to advance cheerleading as a sport through the understanding of safety and technical skills; and to continually foster a working relationship with the Georgia High School Association (GHSA).

We aim to offer training that emphasizes safety, technical skills, and sportsmanship as outlined in the National Federation Spirit Rules book and GHSA publications. In addition, the GCCA seeks to act as a unifying voice for coaches across the state to advance the sport of cheerleading in working with the GHSA.

We also strive to recognize superior cheerleading athletes and coaches through the Cheerleader of the Year / All-State Cheerleading Scholarship Program, the Georgia Cheerleading Coach of the Year Award, and the Georgia Cheerleading Team of the Year Award. These awards are made in conjunction with the Georgia Athletic Coaches’ Association (GACA).

In addition to our quarterly membership newsletter, continual email rules clarifications, and annual spring and summer conferences, we are now offering this newly revamped website as a resource to our fellow cheerleading coaches. Please enjoy, and let your voice be heard by joining our organization. Along with all of the benefits mentioned above, members also gain one million dollars of liability insurance through our dual membership in the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact a member of our leadership team today.

Yours through education, unity, and progress,

April Smith

GCCA President
