anchorPre-Camp Checklist -- We've Got You Covered, Coach!
  • Your tryouts have likely just happened. Keep track of camp deposit due dates and rooming lists by logging in to your Varsity Portal. Remember that camp deposits are due 60 days prior to the first day of your camp (and the final balance is due shortly after – 45 days prior to your camp).
  • Learn the USA Camp Dance! The video links are almost ready to send out! Have you paid your camp deposit? If so, be on the lookout for your email soon!
  • Brainstorm FUNdraisers with your new team!
  • Plan a pool party or BBQ with the new parents and team members. Getting to know each other early on in a fun and relaxing environment will make football and competition season that much better for everyone!
  • Work on safety and stunt progressions. Strong technique with the basic skills will lead to safer and better building as you take your stunts to the next level.
  • SAVE THE DATE! Let your students know that the USA/UCLA Football Spirit Spectacular is set for September 10, 2016! This is an exclusive opportunity for USA camp attendees (from all programs) to perform on the field of the Rose Bowl at UCLA’s home opener. Don’t miss it!
  • Remember to get pictures of your new team for the end of the year banquet.
  • Add some philanthropy to your program, teaching your students to be leaders on and off the field, as well as ambassadors for your school.
At camp, each student will be asked to provide at least 1 address for the St. Jude letter writing campaign. Students who provide 5 addresses will be given a St. Jude pin as a small thank you for their thoughtfulness.

Want to join the see the backlot of the studios at Paramount AND run/walk for a good cause? Join the USA Office Staff at the St. Jude Run/Walk in Los Angeles on September 24! Mark your calendar and SAVE THE DATE! 

  • PLAN YOUR RALLY NIGHT OUTFITS for the USA “Lights, Camera, Action” Rally! It is so fun brainstorming outfit ideas for USA Rally Night. Get creative with clothes you find around the house! Maybe you can select one movie, then each team can be a different character from that movie (i.e., Toy Story – JV Cheer can be cowgirls like Jessie, Varsity Cheer can be the green army men and Varsity Song can be Barbie).
  • If your camp location allows for it (per your camp paperwork), make SPIRIT POSTERS for camp! WE’RE ALL IN for having fun, getting creative and team bonding!
We'll see you at USA Summer Training Camp!
