This is by far one of my favorites so far. Each year the Alberta Cheerleading Association (ACA) holds the largest cheerleading and dance event in Western Canada right here in our home town! The 2019 True North Cheerleading and Dance Championships will will bring over 230 teams from across Alberta and neighbouring provinces. That is approximately 3,000 athletes in from from 3 to adult. Add in about 500 or so amazing coaches and then us the 6,500 spectators that cheer loud an proud. For the All Star teams this is a two day event.
This year I choose to help out and volunteer, cause as you know events as big as this will not run smoothly without the help of many fabulous helpers. I enjoyed not only watching our team but many others. The one thing I have found about Cheerleading is that everyone cheers not matter the color/team. I may not always have the time in my busy schedule but I have to heart to volunteer so I just make it work.
Together we stand and together we fall. All for one and one for all! So proud of the outcome this weekend for not only our daughter but the 17 other girls and three amazing coaches. It has been a very trying year and lots and lots of changes but wow to see them pull it all together this weekend and almost hold on to a first place lead to a amazing team heading to Summit. I am beyond proud and can't wait to see what happens in when we travel to Sea to Sky this Spring. Have no doubt and shout it out. "Pride, Passion Perfection be warned, you can't out run the Storm!!!!
It was great on Day 3 to be able to stand right at the VIP Exit as I got to watch all team compete. And what a splendid day for Cheer.
They didn't lose, they got second and that is still winning. It make them want to work that much harder. There are others that would love to be in that position. Second place we will take it we earned it!
Thanks to all who helped out this weekend to make sure the little Miss was on time fed and ready to got. Can congrats to Team Freeze and Coaches and a fabulous 2nd place finish.
