Long Island Cheerleading Coaches Association: Welcome


Mission Statement

Long Island cheerleading has evolved into a serious sport requiring qualified, dedicated Cheerleading Coaches.  It is the Coach's responsibility to foster the promotion and enthusiasm necessary for cheerleading. Furthermore it is imperative that LICCA Coaches promote safety and good sportsmanship for their student athletes.

To L.I.C.C.A. coaches, administrators, parents, and cheerleaders,

As you know, we are proud to finally achieve our goal. Cheerleading is a recognized sport in New York State. This didn't happen overnight. It is the result of the dedication of everyone in our association since 1994. The reality is here. Change, however, means growth,and it brings new challenges. Just as a cheer progression sheet inspires a team to new heights, this recognition will inspire and enable cheerleaders to use their talents as leaders in every aspect of their lives.It will be a part of all that they do. It is a great new beginning. As Dr. Seuss says, "Oh the places you will go!" So, from the top of the pyramid, and the bottom of our hearts...

L.I.C.C.A.thanks you all.
