As a competitive cheerleading team, we do everything that most cheerleading teams do, but with our own twist! We have 2 routines that we learn at the beginning of the season that consist of cheer, dance, stunts, jumps, and tumbling.


Each of our routines are specially chorgraphed for our team and their needs at the beginning of the season.


We serve as the Special Olympics Cheerleading team for Henderson County! This was our fourth year competing with Special Olympics and it is always one of the most important parts of our season.


We have recently won the National Championship at Spirit of Hope in Charlotte, NC, The National Championship at War on the Shore in Savannah, Georgia as well as the state championship at Special Olympics.
