Hi everyone. Disney Youth Programs is proud to announce this weekend, over 420 teams from 33 different states will descend upon the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for the 31st annual National High School Cheerleading Championship, administered by the Universal Cheerleaders Association, a Varsity brand. The parks will be filled with spectators cheering on their favorite teams. This is Varsity’s 17th year holding this championship at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Teams qualified for the event by receiving bids at UCA Regional Competitions across the country. Winners will receive medals, a trophy and the ultimate prize: 2011 UCA National Championship satin jackets. Each routine will be on Varsity TV on, and there will be special features and interviews with selected teams. For more information, visit

Disney Youth Programs at Disney Parks

posted on February 8th, 2011 by Tim Hill, Director of Disney Youth Programs

Have you ever been part of Disney Youth Programs? If so, chances are we crossed paths. As director of Special Programs at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort, I’ve met and been inspired by many of you during the last 21 years. And beginning today, I’ll be sharing some of your unique stories on the Disney Parks Blog.

If you haven’t heard, Disney Youth Programs offer youth groups from all over the world performance, education, field-trip and celebration opportunities at Disney Parks. Here’s a better idea of what we’re all about:

In upcoming months, look for interviews with actual youth groups who have participated in our programs and updates on new learning opportunities and events. You can also visit our new website or Facebook page to learn more and get the latest information on youth group related happenings at Disney Parks.

I’d love to hear about your Disney Youth Programs experience. Let me know in the comments.
