Cheerleading has been recognized as a sport with the Alberta Schools Athletic Association since 1984. In 2005, the ACA initiated discussions with other provincial cheerleading organizations regarding the vision to collaborate and form a national cheerleading organization by drafting up and circulating a preliminary set of bylaws. Cheerleading Canada Inc. is our National Sport Governing Body with involvement from every province.
