The ICCA is proud of its affiliation with the Iowa Shriners and the participation of Iowa Cheerleaders in the Shrine Bowl. Each fall the Shriners send out a post card inviting all Iowa high school cheerleaders to a tryout for participation on this squad. The tryouts are held at the Za-Ga-Zig Temple in Altoona (east of Des Moines) on October 18, starting at 9:00 am. A panel of ICCA coaches (who will later help coach the teams) choose 60 cheerleaders – 30 from the North and 30 from the South. During the last week in July, the cheerleaders meet at UNI, along with the Shrine Bowl football players. They learn a choreographed routine and various cheers through website videos provided one month before reporting to the week’s event. The routine and cheers are performed during the Shrine football game on Saturday afternoon. The cheerleaders, as well as the football players, are able to participate in the many wonderful activities hosted by the Shriners that week. Form more information contact the following coaches:
