State Champ Cheer Competition

Place:  Washington High School

Address:  2217 W Glendale Ave., Phoenix AZ 85017

Note:  Each class/team will perform the same cheer and dance routine that they performed at the Regional Showcase. Students will be judged on the same categories - personality (smiles), curriculum requirements, spirit and technique.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be a practice with your coach prior to the Competition.

All participants will receive an exclusive State trophy and will be competing for 1st, 2nd, 3rd 4th, 5th & runner-up State Medals!

This event is divided into 4 sessions for the day, with 3 categories per division; small, medium & large group.

All participants are required to wear their Young Champions cheer uniforms—all teams! All participants are required to wear rubber-soled white sneakers and need to bring their team pom-pons! Students are expected to look neat with hair styled and a "little" makeup, if parents permit.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A LARGE STATE CHEER TROPHY!
