NJCDCA News-Coaches Letter:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the coaches and teams who have participated in the NJCDCA State Championships for the past 27 years. As we continuously strive to enhance the competition a few modifications have been made for the 2019 year. Although all of the changes are in bold print we encourage you to read all of the material carefully.

 

We look forward to your participation and support as we showcase our New Jersey Cheerleaders and Dancers in 2019!
