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 the Edmonton Expo Centre in
Edmonton on March 1st to March 3rd, 2018. This event will consist of approximately:

  • ICU High School & University World Cheerleading Championships Bids

  • IASF Partial & At Large Bids
    (We can award up to Two (2) Partial & Four (4) At Large Bids plus One (1) At Large Bid for the New 5.0, 6.0 or Performance Cheer Division)

  • 230 teams from across Alberta and four neighbouring provinces;

  • 3,000 athletes ranging in age from three-years-old through to adults;

  • 500 coaches;

  • 50 officials; and

  • 6,500 spectators!


Expo parking costs $16.00 per vehicle per day. All guests are permitted re-entry twice to the parking lot with valid proof of purchase for that day.


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.
