Everything in life worth earning is a PROCESS – this is especially true with kids. We have to be patient, steadfast, supportive, clearly communicate our expectations, give the tools to reach them, nudge in the right direction when they go off course, celebrate the moments of success, and motivate through the moments of struggle. The process is full of UPS and DOWNS. WE started something special this season, at World Elite, and WE are only in the beginning stages. We lit a spark in our teams, coaches and families and that fire is still building. Our 2018 post-season was a glimpse into the program WE are creating.
The post-season started at US Finals in Indianapolis, IN. where our Mini 1, Glam Girls, placed 1st and brought home the US Finals Regional Championship! Glam Girls hit an amazing routine. They were also chosen to represent the Mini Divisions in the overall Champions Challenge. All winners will be announced in a special broadcast, on May 23rd, on Varsity.tv. Stay tuned!
The post-season success continued as WE headed into The Cheerleading Worlds in Orlando, Florida. The Cheerleading Worlds is an international event, bringing together more than 11,000 Level 5 cheer athletes from 40 countries. These athletes are the TOP of their sport. Our Large International Open Coed team, Temptation, started the weekend with an amazing performance and finished in the TOP 10 in the United States in the U.S. Trials round. This top finish earned them an advancement into the Semi-Final round. Here they finished as the TOP RANKED Large IOC team from the Midwest and Northeast. Our Small Senior team, Crave, maintained that success with an amazing HIT routine in the Semi-Final round finishing 11th in the World in a difficult division. Crave, with a Paid Worlds Bid, skipped the prelims round and with a HIT in the Semi round earned a spot in Finals. World Elite was one of only 3 programs in Ohio who advanced to the Final round! World Elite was the ONLY program, from Ohio, to have multiple teams advance! The success of our Worlds teams, for World Elite’s first showing at The Cheerleading Worlds, was nothing short of amazing!
The last post-season event, finishing this past weekend, was The Summit. This event was also held in Orlando, Florida. World Elite had 6 teams at The Summit: Fearless (Youth 1), Leading Ladies (Junior 2), Authority (Medium Junior 2), Miss Supremacy (Junior 3), Senior Sensation (Senior 4.2), and Lady Lux (Senior 4) – a fantastic milestone in it’s self. Through the weekend, those 6 teams had incredible performances, a total of 7 HIT routines, and memorable experiences that will last them a lifetime. Our Senior 4.2, Senior Sensation, advanced from the Wildcard round to the Prelim round, and from the Prelim round to Finals – finishing 4th in the Country!
World Elite attended these post-season events for the VERY first time with great success! In an industry where teams are followed with fanatical support, building a name is no small feat but we are doing JUST THAT. We are only in the middle of a process and although we have much to celebrate we also have more to do. Everyday we are adding kindling to our fire and at just the right time, we will light the match.
