the cheerleading recruiting process

Want to cheer in college? Get in line. The recruiting process for cheerleading becomes more competitive every day, and the recruiting process starts earlier and earlier every day. There is much more to the process then showing up at a camp or cheering in a showcase. The old saying "if you're good enough, they will find you", wasn't true then and isn't true now.

The chance to be recruited to cheer in college comes only once in your lifetime. Only you can ensure that it's not wasted.

  • We are the largest on-the-ground scouting company in the world.
  • Unlike other scouting companies, we're not telemarketers.
  • NSR matches student-athletes both academically and athletically with corresponding colleges.
  • Our athlete directory isn't password protected, meaning coaches can freely search prospective cheerleading players.
  • We digitize and edit your cheerleading footage, as well as skill videos.

Josh Franklin

National Director of Cheer Scouting

After playing various sports over the years, I found my true passion and calling when I began cheerleading my junior year in high school. As a member of Ace Warriors, I was able to learn and grow in the sport of cheerleading under some of the greatest minds in the world as well as accomplish a team goal of winning the 2011 Cheerleading Worlds Championship.

I continued my career of cheerleading at the University of Mississippi where I was a varsity cheerleader all four years, placed top 5 in the D1A coed division, and won the College International Championship in 2012. As I sought to continue my education, I continued cheerleading at the University of Alabama for 1 year and coached another as a graduate assistant. During my time as graduate assistant, I worked directly with Coed and All Girl cheer as well as Big Al helping run practices, prepare for competition, and assisted in various recruiting efforts while completing my masters in Sports Management. Throughout college, I worked as a UCA staff member for five years working with thousands of high school and college cheerleading athletes and traveling to numerous local, regional, and national events.
