The Moose Jaw cheerleading squad takes its talents to Florida in May to compete against some of the best in the world.
Back in December, Infinity Athletics’ U12 Supernovas placed first in the virtual competition, earning themselves a big bid and booking their ticket to the Allstar World Championships in Orlando, Florida, from May 4-7.
This marks the first time the Infinity Athletics team will compete in a world-level competition and the youngest team in the province to qualify for such an event.
“The girls are just excited,” said Melissa Marzolf, one of the owners of Infinity Athletic. “A lot of these girls have been working together for years and their passion and excitement for the sport of cheerleading is so much fun to watch. It’s great to see them accept this and now work hard to get on that world stage.
The team decided at the beginning of the season to compete in this virtual competition to see if they could qualify faster for the world event. This gives the team more time to prepare than if they had to wait for the qualifiers in Cold Lake, Atlanta, in April. They will still attend the competition in April in hopes of receiving a paid offer to help cover their registration fee of anywhere from $75-$300 per person for the world event in May.
Marzolf added that to attend the event the team must receive an official invitation such as a big offer or payment.
In their December competition, the squad must submit a 2:30 routine and must include all cheerleading components such as tumbling, dancing, jumping, and stunting.
“They have to do a competition routine, we record it in our gym, then post it online. The judges watch our video and send all the awards and bid announcements.
The good thing about the virtual competition is that the teams are scored by the judges who will be at the world event.
Marzolf explained that the team’s reaction was memorable when they found out they had received the big offer.
“It was a video and the names were going on the screen of everyone who got an offer and it was the first time we got one and some of them said, did they just say our name or did we get it? The coach then said guys we’re going! Then the excitement and the tears started to roll. It was so heartwarming and heartwarming to watch.”
Leading up to the May event, the team will be attending several competitions and taking the judge’s feedback each time to fine-tune their routine for Orlando.
“There are also some options that we can send regularly to the States as well to preview and get the opinions of the judges as we approach to make sure that they maximize the score when they go down.”
It’s going to be a busy schedule for them when they’re down in Orlando, because it’s possible they’ll perform three or four times in four days.
“It’s all broken down into age and division. They’ll start in the first round, and if they pass the first round, they’ll go to the preliminary round and then to the final. It all depends on how far they make it.”
The squad will begin ramping up their training routine in the months leading up to the world event. Currently, they train twice a week – an hour and a half each time, but in the coming months they will add some extra training sessions to prepare for the competition.
Fundraising efforts will be announced in the coming weeks to help the team pay for registration, flights, meals, and hotels while in Orlando.
