UCA College Nationals Partner Stunt Preview
On top of team practices, coed and all girl partner stunt groups have been putting in extra work all season long to compete for the bragging rights of the best partner stunt couple or group in the nation.
The athletes had to submit a video of their routine by the first of November, and were then ranked by a panel of judges. The minute-long routines are judged on execution, technique, skill difficulty, variety of transitions and overall effect.
The top routines were selected to compete on Friday, January 13th at the 2017 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship!
All the action and excitement from the UCA College Nationals Partner Stunt competition is airing exclusively on ESPN3. If you can't watch it live, don't sweat it! When the action kicks off on Friday, the FloCheer crew will bring you event coverage with updates, results and athlete interviews from the front row!
Plus, full performance videos of the partner stunt competition will be available on Varsity TV after the completion of the event. (If you're a FloCheer subscriber, your FloPRO login also gives to complete access Varsity TV!)
