Weekly Reader 2/5/14

Hello Cheer World Families,

 

This Week:

 

From the Windy City to Broadway, this was a fun and exciting week for the C-Dub Nation!  This past weekend over 130 CW athletes competed in Chicago IL at The Showdown by GLCC.  Although travel times went late into the night and early morning, everyone made it to and from Chicago safely.

 

Plenty of Black and Blue filled the audience Wednesday evening at EJ Thomas Hall in Akron, for Bring It On! The Musical.  Although the weather made things difficult for some, it was a fun night off the mat for our athletes.  Remember, the RESCHEDULED 2/5 Practices can viewed by CLICKING HERE.

 

Our Level 5 Teams have an additional practice this Saturday, 2/8.  Please CLICK HERE to review that schedule.

 

Finally, it’s that time of year were Middle School and High School cheer tryout schedules are starting to be released. If any friends or siblings of our amazing athletes are trying to improve their skills for tryouts, be sure to recommend one of our Tumbling Classes for them to work on their skills!

GLCC Akron Wrap Up: (REMINDER)

A Grand Champion is a team that places with the overall highest score of that Level across all Age Divisions at a competition.  This means, that from a Tiny 1 team to a Senior 1, the highest overall team would win the Level 1 Grand Champion award.

 

This past weekend in Akron bestowed great success for our program.  Although any coach will say, we can always keep pushing and do better, there really were some great accomplishments at the Battle at the Lake!
