NCPA Championships Venue
Regarding our venue for NCPA Championships, the board voted to cancel our Stockton venue for championships this season. With the uncertainty of where participation and especially ticket sales (which is what pays for Stockton) will leave us, we feel it is fiscally irresponsible to risk hosting at a large arena while we are still working our way though this pandemic. We will continue to push for a return to Stockton or a larger arena in the future, and hope you’ll understand that this decision is made with the future of the circuit in mind. American Canyon High School has stepped up to host and we look forward to working with them to make the 2022 NCPA Championships an exciting and memorable event.

Show on 4/2
We have been unable to secure a venue for 4/2, thus we are opening registration with 4 total shows. Should this changes, we will add a fifth show to registration at a later date.

COVID Protocols at Competitions
NCPA requires that spectators, performers, staff, and contest administrators follow COVID-19 health protocols set forth by the host of each show. These will be published along with the standard show materials (e.g. maps and schedules) prior to each show. Additionally, we ask that each school follow their specific school district health policy.

  • Example Scenario A: If the host requires masks, all spectators, performers, and contest administrators must wear a mask,
  • Example Scenario B: If the host does NOT require masks, but a participating school district’s policy requires a mask, all participants from that school, including volunteers and staff, must wear a mask
