Nationals are something every competitive cheerleader looks forward to throughout the cheer season.
To get to nationals teams have to participate in competitions that will give them a chance to get bids. A bid is an invite to compete at whichever nationals competition the team wants to go to. Bids can vary on whether the team gets an all expenses paid trip to just a ticket into the competition, but the team has to pay for everything.
Some of the top national competitions are:
UCA College National Championships
UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship
And the international championships
