True North Cheer & Dance Championships


Join us on Friday, March 1st to Sunday March 3rd , 2019!

Each year the Alberta Cheerleading Association (ACA) holds the largest cheerleading and dance event in
Western Canada! The 2019 True North Cheerleading and Dance Championships will be held at Northlands in
Edmonton, March 1st to March 3rd, 2018. This event will consist of approximately:

  • Jr High School, High School & University World Cheerleading Championships Bids
  • IASF Partial & At Large Bids
  • 250 teams from across Alberta and four neighbouring provinces;
  • 4,000 athletes ranging in age from three-years-old through to adults;
  • 500 coaches;
  • 100 officials; and
  • 10,000 spectators!

The event has raised the profile of the sport of cheerleading in Alberta which has helped us to grow and change attitudes about the true athleticism and leadership that these athletes commit. In addition to this, the event is the ACA’s major fundraiser for the year. Funds raised assists our organization to pay for operating costs, provide education and training of coaches and judges, offer annual cheerleading scholarships and meet the needs of school and all-star cheerleading programs in the province.
