In case you missed it!

*Unfortunately..as you know…because of absences and individuals that were unable to be at class or practice…needed to CANCEL ‘THE BEST IN THE WEST’ COMPETITION.

*The GOOD NEWS is that that Competition was awarded free admission and Competition fees at CHEERpros…so the Team will not have to forfeit any money!

*More GOOD NEWS..IS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO DRIVE TO HEMIT!

*Instead the Team was able to stay HOME AND PRACTICE…so that hopefully they will be TOTALLY ready for USA NATIONALS!

*THAT OF COURSE ALL DEPENDS ON THE TEAM MEMBERS AND THEIR COMMITMENT, WILLINGNESS TO FOCUS AND ATTEND TO TASK!
