ROCKSTAR CHEER ATLANTA ON A WINNING PATH: LOCAL CHEERLEADING PROGRAM
CLIMBS THEIR WAY TO SUMMIT
Woodstock -- Rockstar Cheer Atlanta, a local cheerleading training facility, is proud to announce that 4 of their teams have been selected to compete at one of the nation’s most prestigious cheerleading competitions, The Summit, produced by Varsity All Star.
Held at Walt Disney World® Resort’s ESPN Wide World of Sports May 5-7, The Summit, is the season-capping goal for many competitive all star teams. The 2017 Summit will showcase more than 1,000 teams from across the United States.
“Teams competing at The Summit must receive a bid at a prior competition to be eligible to participate,” says Brian Elza, Co-General Manager and Vice President of Sales for Varsity All Star, which is comprised of multiple all star competition brands under the Varsity Spirit umbrella. “That’s what makes The Summit so rewarding for the competitors. If they don’t climb their way to the top throughout their season, they won’t make it to The Summit.”
All star cheerleading is a discipline of cheerleading that is open to all ages and skill levels. “We like to think of All Star cheerleading as the most inclusive sport available to young athletes. Truly anyone can find a local gym, join a team, and attempt a climb to The Summit.” adds Tres LeTard, Co-General Manager and Vice President of Operations for Varsity All Star.
In order to make it to The Summit, Rockstar athletes had to succeed at a bid event held earlier in the competitive season. As bid event competitions took place all across the country over various weekends this season, cheerleaders were glued to VarsityAllstar.com on Monday evenings to find out if their weekend’s performance qualified them to join their elite peers in Orlando.
"At Rockstar Cheer Atlanta, we provide an opportunity for athletes of all ages and skill level to compete against other teams across the country," adds Rockstar's Carolyn Garrison. "Teaching discipline, teamwork, organization, and follow through, all-star cheerleading gives these athletes life skills which they will use on the floor and beyond for years to come."
The Rockstar Cheer all stars will be competing May 5-7, 2017. Fans at home can watch a livestream of the event on Varsity TV on Varsity.com.
