In four short years, our SAE Dragons Cheerleaders have made their mark in Recreational and Competitive Cheer. We began 4 years ago with a small squad of 4th-8th graders and have grown to 2 Recreational Basketball and 2 Competitive Cheer Squads.
In April 2016, our first Dragons Competitive Cheer Squad attended the Go Coastal Cheer and Dance Competition at Six Flags Over Georgia. We not only WON our division but received the Grand Champion Award that paid the way for us to attend US Finals in Pensacola, FL. Our athletes worked to prepare for this exciting, unexpected competition. We placed third in the nation for our division our very first year.
Our Jr. Dragons Competition Squad attended and won FIRST place at 2016 Snowflake Classic in Savannah, GA in December of 2016. They received a bid to US Finals and will travel to Virginia Beach, VA to defend our National Championship title.
All of our trophies and banners are on display in the front office and cafeteria, and the 2015-16 Dragons Competitive Cheerleaders proudly wear their coveted White Jackets and gold shoe laces. Because of the combination of Recreational and Competitive Cheer programs at our school, cheerleaders with little to no experience can join our recreational squad starting in kindergarten to work on building foundational skills to try out for our competitive squad starting in second grade. We are proud of our Cheer Dragons and look forward to adding to our trophy case!
