The New England Cheerleaders Association

was founded by Priscilla L. Lutz of Uncasville, CT on September 10, 1979. The company’s success soared as cheerleaders from all over New England attended NECA cheer camps with the desire to learn new skills and gain insight in how to lead the crowd! Team building and team UNITY became a guiding force behind the NECA resident camp curriculum and remains part of the curriculum to this day.

NECA hosts the NECA Open Cheerleading Championship and the NECA All-Star Classic Cheerleading Championship as well as both resident and private camps throughout New England. The company has enjoyed over 37 years of success which Lutz says is mainly the result of “our love for cheerleading” and “our faithful customers”. Here’s some of what our customers had to say about their camp experience with NECA.

“Attending NECA camp every summer helps my team to set a solid foundation for our upcoming season.  The team building and bonding implemented through “unity” allows new and returning members to form a working relationship.  The fun nightly activities help them to build friendships among their team and other teams attending camp.  Thanks to NECA we have been more successful every year.”  Debbie Huntington, Varsity Cheer Coach New London High School

“NECA camp provided a great opportunity for our team to reconnect and bond over the summer.  We had a great week learning new skills and choreography.  Not only did we leave camp with a stronger understanding of our team’s talents, but we also left with a true meaning of teamwork and unity.  My kids are still talking about their camp experience.”  Audrey Jones, Killingly High School, CT

“NECA Camp has always been a great start to our season! They teach all the latest stunts, cheer and dances while emphasizing team unity. My teams have always left camp with confidence, unity and memories that will last a lifetime!” Michelle Canty-Westerly High School, RI

“My team and I absolutely enjoyed every minute at NECA’s summer camp.  For many of my cheerleaders this was their first time going away to an overnight camp and the NECA staff made the experience so amazing for them that not one of my kids were homesick.  The fun activities, the amazing staff and their attention to detail made the overall experience truly memorable, and we cannot wait to show off our skills at the upcoming NECA All Star competition.  Thank you so much for everything NECA.” Tuan Nguyen, Head Coach
