State cheerleading finals

The state cheerleading finals will take place this Saturday, January 30, at Tim’s Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.  The 4A/5A finals will take place between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. and the the 1A/3A competition will start at 5:30 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m.   A schedule of the finals and a list of the teams participating can be found here.

One of the teams participating will be the defending state champion Mountain View Toros, whom we featured in this blog last September.

Admission to the state cheerleading finals is $8 for adults and $6 for students with a student ID card.  An all-day pass, which gives you the ability to re-enter the arena, is $15. Make sure to dress warmly.  Because it is hockey season, the temperature inside Tim’s Toyota Center will be kept between 62 and 70 degrees to preserve the ice. If you cannot make it to Prescott Valley this Saturday, you may watch the cheerleading competitions live here — 4A/5A and 1A/3A.

If you have a young daughter or know of a young girl who is interested in taking up cheerleading, you should view Vicki Balint’s video about American Elite Cheer in Scottsdale.   — Dan Barr
