The Energetic Edge Senior team, Empower, had a fantastic weekend in Edmonton at the Cold Snap Cheer and Dance Championships, Jan. 25 and 26.
Empower competed on Saturday evening and again on Sunday afternoon to earn their second-place finish in the Senior Level 1 division. The girls performed their routine with zero mistakes on Sunday and earned a hit zero pin to go along with their second place banner.
The competition featured athletes from preschool age to adult with all-star and school teams from all over Western Canada. Divisions ranging from Elementary to High School, Tiny Prep to International Open Level 7 and Cheer Abilities competed in this three-day event. This was the first competition of the season for a team from Energetic Edge Cheer Association.
Energetic Edge currently has five competitive teams and two recreational teams. All competitive teams will compete in Vancouver on March 7 at Feel the Power West, and at the B.C. Provincials Cheerleading Championship on March 8. In April, the same five teams will travel to Kelowna for the Okanagan Cheer Championships.
Locally, all recreational and competitive teams will perform their routines at their Family and Friends Showcase on Feb. 15 at 2 p.m., and again at the Community Showcase on May 9 at 2 p.m. Both showcases will be held at Dr. Kearney Middle School.
Empower will also perform their silver medal routine at the B.C. Winter Games, just prior to the opening ceremonies, on Feb. 20. Be sure to arrive early at the North Peace Arena to catch the performance.
