KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced Tuesday the 2020 NAIA Competitive Cheer (CCD) All-America teams. To achieve NAIA All-America or Honorable Mention status, student-athletes participate in a try-out.

An athlete must score at least a total of 12 in order to be considered for honorable mention and one must score at least a total of 16 in order to be considered for All-America. The CCD Coaches Association officers then confirm the list of scores and athletes.
