My program’s J2 got grand champs with a 99 at Supers and upgraded to our first ever paid Summit bid!
After the events at Jamfest Northern in Blackpool yesterday I just wanted to give a massive shout out to how kind and compassionate the rest of my team mates and coaches are and how fortunate I am to be part of an amazing programme. Our coaches and Senior 1 team gained the Spirit Award for most supportive programme and I’m over the moon with this. Cheerleading is first and foremost about treating athletes with respect and dignity, and about fostering good sportsmanship in every athlete. These athletes are exemplary and deserve to know that. I feel this is even more important to say after our Senior 2 were on the receiving end of some pretty poor behaviour from another team during their awards session. Despite a low placing and being treated poorly all of these girls remained incredibly supportive and kind to other athletes, which shows that they are a credit to their coaches and programme as a whole.
This is the result of a lot of falling and getting up to try again. Proud as heck of her courage and tenacity, and so grateful for this sport that builds those qualities in our kids. Last year she got to go to Gen Next as an alternate. Crossing my fingers for her that she gets picked this year.
Got my first ever Worlds bid this weekend!!
Congratulations!! So exciting!!
Thank you!!!!! I'm very excited.
I found an open team in the UK to join that would accept a 33 year old. They are amazingly encouraging and our all-new stunt group managed some of the stuff on the first day together. Can't wait for next practice!
Three Summit bids for my gym in SC!!!!! All of their eligible teams are going!
All of the teams at Cali Arizona have PAID bids, Summit and Worlds! I don't have a kid there but that is amazing!
My kid has been plagued by injuries this year. Nothing major, just lots of knee and ankle stuff. As a result, her tumbling sort of tapered off and she lost a lot of confidence. We randomly went to an open gym at a new gym and she met a new coach and asked to do some private lessons with him. He took her all the way back to her roundoff and found a bunch of tiny form breaks that he thinks were causing her injuries and pain. (Including one foot where her toe would point out!) Five weeks later and her tumbling looks better than it ever has and her pain is far better! It’s been hard having to relearn everything, but I am so happy to see her excited and feeling good again and I think she’s going to go back to progressing quickly instead of stalling out. Form matters!!!
