All Star Cheer Squad headed to Nationals!
For the third straight year, Gem City’s All Star Cheer Squad qualified for USASF‘s National Cheer Competition.
Nationals is May 6-7 in Orlando, Florida. The bid to Nationals was earned after a solid performance at the squad’s first competition of the season in Des Moines, Iowa, on November 20. #ProudGym
We are proud of the hard work put in by the squad and their coaches, Hope Huff and Kayla Briscoe. Not only does Gem City’s squad tumble and throw each other in stunts, they do this at 8:30 each Saturday morning.
