2020 All-State Performance
March 13, 2020 at Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines
The Iowa All-State Cheerleading Squad is an ICCA/IHSAA sponsored, select team. Any varsity cheerleader of an ICCA member team can tryout for the team. Tryouts are held in October every year. Candidates are judged on their motions, jumps, dance ability, and gymnastics. A team of 20-45 of Iowa’s best cheerleaders is chosen. A choreographer is hired and the team practices on four different Sundays from January to March. During the IHSAA Boys State Basketball Tournament, the team comes together and performs during half time of two of the Friday games. The last performance is during the 1A final. This half time performance is televised and team members are presented with medals.
The ICCA All-State Director is Melissa Hatfield (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Coaches should be receiving the IHSAA mailing with the Fall Packet in August.
All seniors on the All-State Squad are eligible to apply for a $250 scholarship by submitting an application to the All-State Director. A committee of ICCA board members chooses the winner. The winner is recognized after the final performance of the All State team at the Boy’s State Basketball Tournament.
