We hope to bring out the best in Illinois cheerleading by helping coaches develop the leadership and knowledge to bring their respective squads a successful season.
ICCA has established workshops, clinics, rules meetings, coaches education, as well as the ICCA Championships and a scholarship program for our members. With your help, we can do much more to create excellence and develop a healthy respect for cheerleading in all sports.

The IHSA has received a proposal that affects competitive cheerleading:
2014-15 – Proposal No. 16
Amend By-laws 5.341 Season Limitation; 5.342 Contest Limitation and 5.343 Individual Limitation
Submitted by Briant Kelly, Official Representative, Libertyville
By-law 5.341 Currently Reads:
a. No school belonging to this Association shall conduct its Competitive Cheer team practice earlier than Monday of Week 17 or later than Saturday of Week 31 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.
b. No school belonging to this Association shall allow its Competitive Cheerleading squad to participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 18 or later than Saturday of Week 31 in the Standardized Calendar.
Revise By-law 5.341 to Read:
a. No school belonging to this Association shall conduct its Competitive Cheer team practice earlier than Wednesday of Week 6 or later than Saturday of Week 21 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.
b. No school belonging to this Association shall allow its Competitive Cheerleading squad to participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 8 or later than Saturday of Week 21 in the Standardized Calendar.
During the winter months, it is extremely difficult for schools to schedule gym space for all of the indoor sports. However, during the fall with only girls volleyball, there is a better availability of gym space. There will also be a better availability for schools to host invitationals during the fall season. Additionally, during the summer months many cheerleading teams spend time on stunting and choreography, therefore, a fall season would be closer to those summer months.
Proposals will be voted on by your school IHSA representatives, so be sure to discuss the ramifications of the proposal with your Athletic Director soon. Let your AD know how this will affect your cheer programs. Voting will be in December, so talk to them soon.
