ALL TEAMS: SMILE WEEK

This next week will be SMILE WEEK THEME at the gym!

We are doing this to honor Brandi Nobel’s brother chance that passed away in June. Brandi is a specialty coach that comes in to help athletes and coaches throughout the season- she is incredible!!

Chance was such a giving and caring person. He was a Shriner Clown and visited kids in burn wards and more.

He lived by saying “a SMILE can change everything”. He asked us all just to give a smile, it is free and means so much.

His clown name was Ocho and for those that remember the Spirit Celebration day, he was at those competitions every year raising funds for children in need.

He passed away from cancer, but he lived 6 years more than they thought, little miracles along the way for sure!

Everyone is free to wear yellow all week but on Tuesday and Wednesday we want everyone in either a yellow something or a smile shirt for Brandi. Do not feel you need to go buy anything; even a ribbon is great! We will have smile stickers too.

She is planning on being here Monday-Wednesday at this time.


ALL TEAMS: ACRO TRYOUTS

Acro tryouts will now be on August 26th 12pm-1pm (Mandatory parent meeting 12:30pm-1pm)! Reminder that this is a GREAT compliment to cheer and we will be sure it works with our cheer schedule! We are now offering this to athletes ages 5 and up!
