    My 4 year old is now a cp for real!!! I'm just super excited-I was in cheer and dance all through school and had always hoped I'd have a little cheerleader and now I do! She tried out for her very first team this past Saturday at Liberty Cheer All Stars and she made Tiny Show! I even waited up til 1 am waiting for them to post the results. My first parent meeting is tonight and I'm sooooo excited!!!


    I just needed to share my excitement somewhere, I have one friend who is a hardcore cheer mom at DCA but no one else I know is into cheer, I knew I could share me cheer excitement here!

    When you get through the "newbie" process SharkDad can get you added to the *super secret* Parent area!
    BTW I LOVE Liberty All Stars! Those girls have a good thing going and I think a lot of gyms are going to be surprised by them this coming season. Cp has a bunch of friends their on the level 3/4 teams.
    Enjoy this year...Tiny Show is like the calm before the storm...lol

    thank you CAPheebersMom! I assume you are at Cheer Athletics? My niece cheers for Dynasty in Denton so I have seen CA a few times, and I know if she could cheer anywhere else it would be CA! If we weren't headed down south so far that was my first choice to try to join.
    I really think LCA will be a great fit my cp, so far the few moms I've talked to have been really nice and the girls seem very enthusiastic and talented from what I saw-even the tinys were impressive! How far out of the newbies do I need to be??? im past my 72 hour phase! I could use some parent interaction!

    If you can post in the main area you should be able to be added to the parent area. I tagged the admin for that area so he should see it soon. Cp has a few friends that cheered at Dynasty and now are at Spirit of Texas. I think us Texas moms take up a majority of the parent population on here!

    That's awesome, I didn't see much mention of any other gyms besides CA, so I wasn't sure, glad there are lots of gyms and Texas moms representing!

    In about 12 months, the only friends you'll have will be cheer friends because everyone else will think you're nuts. So, go ahead and say goodbye to all the rest of them. You can see them again in 14 years!

    truer words have never been spoken though I have found some non-cheer friends who understand.

    Or if not understand then at least tolerate your obsession.

    I had my first parent meeting last night and I have to say I felt giddy the while time. Practice starts next Friday and I even volunteered to be a team mom! Now I need to hunt for shoes!

    Lol, I love being a Team Mom! I did so many fun things for the girls last year, it was great! I get cp's shoes from Varsity.com, they're good quality and last a long time. She has to get new cheer shoes every season but she's been using the same practice shoes forever.

    Thanks Kelly! I'm really excited to be a team mom, but I know for sure another mom offered, so I don't know how they will choose if they have more than 2 volunteer-they want 2 per show team.

    Offer to be the Head Team Mom and the other lady can be your assistant.
