Last Monday, on the day after UCA College Nationals finals, USA Cheer hosted tryouts for Team USA All Girl and Coed. College-aged athletes from all over the country gathered at Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex to show a panel of judges their best tumbling and stunting skills in hopes of becoming a part of the US National Team. Cheerleaders showed up in their stunt groups to try out, and were asked to perform level 6 elite stunts and baskets, as well as any specialty tumbling they were able to throw.
The US National Team competes against teams from other countries at the ICU World Cheerleading Championships on April 26-28, 2017 at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. Both the Coed and All Girl teams have esteemed reputations to uphold, with All Girl being undefeated since the establishment of the ICU Worlds competition, and Coed having won many gold medals as well.
The following athletes were selected for the US National Team:
