The ICU Coaches Skill Credentialing (CSC) Programme has been created for both Cheerleading and Performance Cheer coaches around the world to enhance their coaching abilities.

Experienced and trained Cheerleading and Performance Cheer professionals in each region administer the ICU CSC Programme. They are selected based on their coaching experience, integrity, and unbiased commitment to coaches education.

As the Sport of Cheer continues to evolve, new and active coaches must remain committed to their education. This means understanding the basic techniques in each level, in each discipline. With this foundation, coaches can safely challenge their athletes as their technique, strength, and abilities progress. The ICU Coaches Skill Credential also provides sport team administrators/directors and employers with a sense of confidence in the credentialed coach, as each participant must pass online and in person practical exams to demonstrate understanding of the foundational aspects of their discipline at each level.
