South Surrey cheer teams successful at Sea to Sky competition

Champion Cheerleading teams qualify for prestigious events – including world championships

Members of South Surrey’s Champion Cheerleading proved that the sky is the limit at a prestigious competition in Vancouver last weekend.

The club sent seven teams to compete at the Sea to Sky event at Canada Place, with two teams – the ‘Junior 3 Royalty’ and ‘Junior 1 Showstoppers’ – placing well enough to qualify to attend The Summit event, scheduled later this year in Orlando, Fla.

Champion’s Worlds team, Flawless I05, also had a successful weekend, receiving another bid to attend world championships next season. In February, the team won its first bid to worlds – a “coveted paid bid” according to club co-founder Kate Wright – which only the highest scoring team of the entire competition can receive.

The Flawless group leaves later this month to represent Canada in the all-girl division.

The Sea to Sky competition featured teams from Canada, the United States and Australia.
