Mist is a "a phenomenon of small droplets suspended in air." We believe this team is a phenomenon of its own. This year Mist is made up of kids from various past's, some were on the team before, others moved up from our Youth level 1 team, Splash, and the rest from different teams outside of the program. They have bonded together and truly become one big group of friends and sisters. They are pushing hard to learn the skills to not only become a successful level 2 team, but to show off their level 3 skills later this season. This team amazes their coaches every day and their is never a dull moment at practice. With a successful competition under their belt, they are ready to tackle the rest of the season and show the world how strong this Mist truly is.
2010 - 2011 Season Recap:
This year Youth Level 2 - Mist - is a team of almost all brand new all-star cheerleaders, but so far that hasn't stopped them from achieving every goal they have set for themselves. Knowing that this can be a very challenging division only makes them work harder! Mist has become more than just a team this year, but a family of sisters, the support and expectations they have for each other really demonstrates what teamwork is all about.
Placing first out of three in their very first competition of the season, and third out of eight in their second competition was very exciting, but more importantly, hitting their routine made them true champions both times! They look forward to showing how hard they work on the floor throughout the rest of the season, and we can't wait to see how far they can go!
