They begin training in April each year perfecting skills. In July they start working on their routines, a 2 1/2 minute dancing, tumbling, stunting, cheering, energetic experience. Competitions start in November/December. There are regional events during that time. January thru April are National competitions. There are several cheer companies, and most sponsor a National event. So there is the opportunity for teams to win multiple national titles.
Our teams only attended one regional event in December. Ally's teams both won their divisons!
|Spirit Celebration Christmas Classic|
|Fusion Pyramid - ACA Nationals|
|Senior 2 Champions and High Point!|
|National Champions in their newest jackets!!|
And so we've begun Nationals season on the right foot! Next weekend we have another. The American Showdown. Both teams Ally is on compete. Last year at this competition all six teams we took won..A clean sweep!! Hoping to do it again for sure!
It's definitely a busy busy time for us, but we love it. It makes for long days, disappearing weekends, but immense joy and pride when our girls give it their best, regardless of what place they finish in. The girls Ally began cheering with at Texas Star five years ago are still together, and have come so far. It's just amazing to watch them. At the end of the season I'll post videos of their routines for you all to see - it really is cool!
Have a great week everyone!
