Girls Varsity Cheer Squad
JV and varsity just returned from Washington State University’s beautiful campus where they attended a four-day (overnight) UCA summer camp and I am excited to share the details of the week with you all!
ALL of district one and two (Post Falls, Lake City, Sandpoint, Lakeland and Coeur d’ Alene, Lewiston, Moscow) attended. Overall, there were 15 high schools attending representing the states of Idaho, Washington, Montana, and Oregon.
Between Sunday and Wednesday received over 30 hours of instruction by former and current college cheerleaders from around the country.
The squad is bringing home great game-day material for the Trojan sideline! They learned a plethora of cheers as well as dance routines and choreographed time-out material.
Each squad learned a choreographed Xtreme routine (shorter show cheer), cheer and sideline. They were evaluated by staff on all of them and competed against the camp on the final day.
Both squads received a Gold Excellence ribbon for their Xtreme routine. This means it was executed with minimal mistakes in one take during evaluation. Only 5 gold ribbons were given away the entire camp – aka we took 40% of them J
The final day competition results were not too shabby either! JV placed 2nd in their Xtreme and Cheer and overall 2nd in their game-day performance while varsity received 4th in game-day and 2nd in Xtreme.
Nicole Bayardo, Allie Kyes, Siena Shinault and Tegan Uemoto represented our team in STUNT. All squads chose one group to compete in this emerging SPORT.
We received positive feedback from parents and athletes. The chance to bond with teammates, stay in college dorms and get instruction from college athletes was well worth the money. We look forward to the kickoff of football season!
