Our Three Favorite Performances 

Top Gun Revelation

Revelation has quite the reputation to uphold, and they did not disappoint this weekend. Their energy and performance value are nearly untouched – watching them is TRULY a spectacle. Unsurprisingly, they took home a Full Paid bid to Worlds and had the highest Worlds-level score at WSF. We can’t wait to see what’s next. 

TAI Ice Queens

TAI Ice Queens is our breakout star of the weekend. Both days, they took the stage with CONFIDENCE and immediately stood out from the crowd. Ice Queens are a welcomed addition to the relatively new International U18 Non-Tumbling 6 division, one of the deepest divisions this season.

Central Jersey All Stars Team Gunz

Central Jersey All Stars is known for their non-stop, well-executed routines, and Team Gunz’s day two performance left us EXCITED for the rest of the season. They returned from a less-than-perfect day-one performance with a zero deduction routine that scored a 98. 

Spirit Celebration Grand Nationals 2023

Spirit Celebration Grand Nationals 2023 occurred December 2-3, 2023, in Dallas, Texas. Worlds-level teams competed for two Full Paid and 6 At-Large bids to The Cheerleading Worlds 2024. You can find the results here, including bid winners and scores for all divisions

Hit Zero Stats

  • Day 1: 6% (1 of 18 teams hit zero)
  • Day 2: 12% (2 of 17 teams hit zero) 
  • Woodlands Elite GI Janes was the only Worlds-level team that hit zero on both days. 

Our Three Favorite Performances

Woodlands Elite Generals

We are THRILLED to see Generals back in Small Senior 6! We often describe Woodlands Elite teams as intense because, well, they are. Generals’ routine is jam-packed with skill and the confidence to match it. Their basket section is one of our favorites this season – it’s good to see so much talent back in this division. 

Stars Vipers Hiss

Stars Vipers Hiss took home level 6 Grand Champs and a Full Paid bid to The Cheerleading Worlds this weekend, pleasantly surprising us all. Hiss added nearly three whole points to their score from day one to day two after hitting zero deductions. Stars Vipers always provides a hard-hitting, well-choreographed routine, and Hiss is here to maintain that standard. 

Woodlands Elite Gunsmoke

Gunsmoke is a new addition to the Medium Senior Coed 6 division, and they have turned quite a few heads after day one. Medium Coed is arguably one of the most competitive divisions this season, and Gunsmoke has proved to be a worthy contender. They have some of the best baskets we’ve seen this season (it must be a Woodlands Elite thing this year). We’re looking forward to seeing all the Medium Coed teams compete against each other. 👀

Champion Cheer and Dance Grand Nationals 2023

Champion Cheer and Dance Grand Nationals 2023 occurred December 2-3, 2023, in Baltimore, Maryland. Worlds-level teams competed for two Full Paid and six At-Large bids to The Cheerleading Worlds. You can find the results here, including bid winners and scores for Worlds-division teams

Hit Zero Stats:  

  • Day 1: 21% (4 of 19 teams hit zero)
  • Day 2: 28% (5 of 18 teams hit zero)
  • Power Athletics Maryland Blackout was the only Worlds-level team that hit zero on both days.

Our Three Favorite Performances

South Jersey Storm Celsius

Celsius is storming the Small Senior Coed 6 division (get it? 😉). Their day two zero-deduction routine landed them the highest Worlds-division score of the weekend across the three events we followed with scores this weekend. SJS is ready to take on the world with a new vibe – and this weekend, they clearly made a statement. 

Maryland Twisters F5

Reigning World Champs, CLOCK IN! The Divas of F5 found their groove on day two and showcased their iconic style. We’re thrilled to see them back in Medium, where a showdown is brewing. The vibes are CORRECT, and we can’t wait to see them perform with their new mix. 😉

Power Athletics Maryland Blackout

Power Athletics Maryland Blackout gave us CONSISTENCY this weekend. Blackout was one of only three Worlds teams to hit zero on both days this season – an impressive feat for early December. Blackout is consistently fun to watch, and this season’s routine is no different!
