In 2021, DCCA began the transition to Delaware Spirit Coaches Association "DSCA" in order to incorporate all spirit programs in Delaware.  DSCA's goal remains to advance the education of coaches and athletes throughout the State of Delaware by providing comprehensive safety training and certifications for the educational development of coaches and spirit athletes. DSCA will promote participation and sportsmanship to develop good citizens through spirit activities which provide equitable opportunities, positive recognition and learning experiences to everyone involved, while maximizing the achievement of educational goals.
