MINI MILITIA CHEER SQUAD WINS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

by Jeanni Ritchie

The Xtreme Athletics Mini Militia team placed first in their cheer division at Disneyworld in May. Posting their highest score of the year, the 13 girls (ranging in age from 7-10) reigned supreme in their Mini Level 1.1 All Star cheer division in the Prep in Rec Grand Nationals at Universal Studios Orlando Florida.

It is the largest cheer competition in the world for this division and they hit all their marks. Check out the routine here.

The dynamic team is comprised of Addilyn Bass, Sadie McKee, Sadie Gauthier, Belle Rivera, Adalynn Rivera, Preslee Perry, Molly Tyler, Hadley Rachal, Adalee Kopp, Elliot Grimes, Avery Lemoine, Addison Birkicht, and Londyn Yoist.

In addition to the physical skills and strengths needed to stunt, jump, or tumble, there is so much personal development that allows cheerleaders to gain practical life skills such as discipline, teamwork and goal setting. Cheer also instills confidence and promotes mental health positivity. 

These girls are getting a head start on lessons that will benefit them greatly in life. We should be inspired by them. Congratulations Mini Militia on a successful season!
