Texas Cheerleading Coaches Association (TCCA) originally began in 1993 with very little help. TCCA eventually disappeared and TACCA was born. TACCA was the brainchild of David Wright, Dixie McMath, Cheryl Brown, Pete Ramirez, Denise Neel and Barbie Britt. They saw that there was a lack of support and education for cheerleading coaches and advisors and sought to fill this void. With the passing of David Wright, after a long illness, TACCA slowly faded away and was inactive for several years.

The need for coaches’ education, however, was still there, so about four years ago, several coaches from the DFW area got together and decided to resurrect the idea of TACCA. We revised the bylaws, brainstormed new ways to help, educate and advocate for coaches and their athletes. We've come a long way in four years! We have held four college recruitment events, three in the DFW Metroplex and one in San Antonio. We just wrapped up our 3rd Annual TACCA Conference, and we were so glad to meet so many new coaches.  Planning for our next conference is already underway.

Working together, sharing thoughts, culminating a unique friendship that only cheerleading coaches can, will help to make us strong and accomplish our goals. TACCA is dedicated to the service and education of youth and coaches in our state.

TACCA has several goals set forth for this year and the years to follow. This year, we are looking to grow our membership base, provide scholarship opportunities for high school seniors, continue our college recruitment clinics, and provide more opportunities throughout the year for coaches’ education.
