Week 1

Never settle for less than your dreams

Somewhere someday somehow

You’ll find them just


This week our team’s goal was to try to learn the rest of the routine. We are increasing our difficulty this year from our routine last year, but we are still going for a clean look. This year we want to go to nationals with a routine that we feel confident about and know we can execute successfully. It is important not to put things in a routine just because they look good or have a high difficulty level. You want to be able to show good technique and hit your routine.

“The drive to be better than the other team should be changed to a drive to be the best “your team” that your team can be.” – The American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators.

My personal goal for this week was to improve my full basket. Sadly, at Mondays practice Morgan, one of my bases, injured her hand catching me in my full. Luckily it is not broken and she will be fully participating again next week.

During this week at practice we did a team bonding activity. We all sat in a circle and explained something positive about our team and what inspires us. This helped us get motivated and keep a positive attitude to reach our goals.

Goals for next week:

Be able to hit the first half of our routine and perform it at our last home men’s basketball game on Feb 26.
