Worldwide Spirit Association was founded in 1996 by Darren and Nicole DeMoss. The company's roots started in 1990 when Darren and Nicole paid their way through college by cheering at LSU. After graduation, the college sweethearts married and turned their passion into a business by opening a cheer gym and starting one of the first allstar programs in the country, the Baton Rouge All Stars. In an effort to fill the natural summer slow down at the cheer gym, WSA Summer Camps was launched. In 1999 WSA held its first championship. In 2000, Darren and Nicole left the cheer gym business to fully focus on WSA Camps and Competitions. Today, WSA is one of the leading companies in the cheer and dance industry, producing the most amazing events in the country.
