Tag: Cheerleading Competition
I woke up 4 o’clock in the morning Saturday to help my daughter prepare for her cheer leading competition. Her school is participating in the MILO Little Olympics.
The competition was held at the Marikina Sports Complex. It was a hot day with rain clouds threatening to pour any moment. The team were so excited even the parents. We braved to scorching heat, never mind the sweat as long as our girls are enjoying.
Here are some of the photos I took as they await for the competition to begin. You can see them fixing their props, offering a prayer and just having a good time.
We prayed for a cooler day but with no rain. It was the first time they will be doing their routine on open ground. If the rain will pour, they will have to forfeit themselves since it will be too dangerous for the girl to be flipping around with rain pouring on them. Good thing our prayers were heard.

And the winner is ….
Congratulations SPCP for bagging the grand slam in the 2010 MILO Little Olympics – NCR Division.
Now off to the National Finals… (keeping our finger crossed)
The National Cheerleading Championship is now on its 5th season. My daughter’s school was part of the finals for the All Girls High School Division.
I enjoy watching this kind of competition. Even as spectator, the rush of adrenaline cannot be avoided as you watch the each of the teams try to achieve their flawless routines, execute those intricate gymnastic moves such as tumbling and cartwheel and of course, the nerve wrecking stunts for the flyers. These flying stunt is one that makes me screech whenever they throw those bodies in mid air.
My girl and her team was in for a real competition this time. Last year, they were invited only for an exhibition to introduce a new Juniors Division for the NCC.
It was a tough competition for all the competing teams. This is my daughter and her team mates as they anxiously await the announcement of the winners.
Although they did not bag the 1st place, they are all winners. They came in as 2nd runner up. You can see that most of them were quite disappointed, but they put up a good fight. This is what’s good about exposing your kids to sports, they get to face failures and be a better sport. Next year will be another year and hopefully they’ll do better. Congratulations to all of you!
