By combining high energy entertainment with traditional school leadership, Webb and his organization have driven the development of an international phenomenon that now not only includes millions of young Americans, but also a rapidly growing number of participants worldwide. Varsity is comprised of the leading organizations and brands in the various cheerleading segments, including its educational camps and clinics, competitions, and uniforms. While Varsity's heritage is rich and its traditions renowned, it continues to be the innovative global leader in growing cheerleading's influence and profile.
