The BAYFL Competition Cheering Squad returned from the NCA Cheering Camp on July 9th with the 2012 Most Improved Squad Award.  

BAYFL attended the NCA Cheer Camp held at Husson University  in Bangor from July 6th through July 9th. Sixteen cheerleaders, ages 10 – 14, and 6 coaches representing Brunswick, Topsham, Durham, Bath, Bowdoinham and Harpswell, united as one squad and were selected as the Most Improved Team.  Seven team members also received All American Nominations to try out for the NCA squad.

By attending camp, team members have the opportunity to learn fresh, innovative cheers, chants, dances, sideline/pep rally routines and stunts by NCA.  There is a daily focus on building confidence, positive attitudes and teamwork to transform individual cheerleaders into a team! Teams enjoy fun-filled, stunt-filled days, develop leadership skills and build bonds that help cheerleaders of today become the leaders and role models of the future.

In 2011, 21 cheerleaders and 6 coaches attending the 4 day camp. BAYFL received 9 individual nominations to try-out for the NCA All American Team. Two of our girls made the team! As a nominee, you are also invited to participate/cheer in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade as well as the Christmas Extravaganza held at Disney World in Florida. We had two girls march in the Thanksgiving Day Parade and another participate in the events at Disney World. What a great honor!

Upon return, the Camp Squad performs at opening day of BAYFL Football to showcase what they have learned!

Camp costs are determined by Husson Univeristy and NCA. The cost to attend camp in 2012 was $275.
