The deluge of interest in NCA All-Star Nationals was one of the driving factors that moved the event to a four-day format. Now, more teams than ever before will experience the arena, including some of the Level 4 athletes. This year, the warm-up rooms will be closer, the competition days will be shorter, and there will be much less foot traffic in the convention center.
The past several years, this event has reached capacity within hours, which creating a waitlist with coaches stressed out and hoping to make the cut-off for one of the most important events of their season. - Justin Carrier, VP of Events & ChampionshipsIn addition, the Tiny and Mini teams have moved their championships to NCA Mini and Prep Nationals in the spring, which provides more space for teams to register for the event.
In past years, dance teams also attended the Dallas-based competition. But for the first time in years, the NDA All-Star National Championship will be hosted at a separate venue, on a separate weekend, which will reduce crowding and provide a more focused event.

Although the event is going through some changes, you can expect the same, if not better, production and experience. We've heard there will be some exciting updates made to the staging and layout, so keep an eye out for updates as February draws near.
Every year, the All-Star Registration Rally is one of the most exciting days of the season. It means the countdown to NCA All-Star Nationals is on. - Justin CarrierFor the first time in years, this event still has room for teams looking register, so if you'd like more information about the event, head to nca.varsity.com.
