“We are very proud of all of our athletes for putting in so much hard work, dedication, and passion into preparing for Nationals. It definitely paid off with every team hitting zero (no falls or deductions) and Sapphire taking fifth place in a large division,” says Daelyn Yntema, coach of Sapphire. “This was a great way to finish the competition season and we’re looking forward to having our community cheer them on at Wings Up.”

These teams and athletes are now preparing for their year-end showcase, Wings Up, being held at Centennial Secondary School on Saturday, April 27th, 2024 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. This event is open to the public, $10 per wristband, and is a great way to learn more about All Star cheerleading in the Quinte area.
