REMINDER: ICCA has an Integrity Clause all members are expected to abide by for the State Cheerleading Championships:Participants for the Iowa Cheerleading Championships are made up of teams of bona fide cheerleaders from Iowa schools. ICCA requires all participating cheerleaders to be bona fide cheerleaders.  Bona fide cheerleaders cheer at scheduled games for an entire season, and participate in ALL cheer activities as team members. They cannot be cheerleaders who cheer now and then, step in to stunt, or only cheer on a competition squad. To place someone other than a bona fide cheerleader on a squad will open the school to possible disqualification, probation from ICCA Events, and the rescinding of trophies and medals won by the school at the Championships.
