Competition season is finally here! As cheerleaders, we have been practicing all year getting ready for competition season‚ and we are ready to prove we mean business! Who’s with me when I say we are here to win big and make this the best season yet. Now, on a scale of 1-10, how ready are you? Do you feel fit to compete and confident when taking to the mat? We practice and prepare ALL season long, but during that time when you hear your team name being called to take to the mat and those few seconds of s-i-l-e-n-c-e waiting for the music to start, those butterflies start to creep up and unfortunately, can get the best of us.
