Spirit of Texas Royalty

Spirit of Texas Royalty continues to amaze. Their visuals are something out of a cheer textbook, and their near-perfect MAJORS routine is something to CELEBRATE. More of THAT, please!

Tribe Cheer Phoenix 

Tribe Cheer Phoenix is the season’s dark horse, and after their performances at JAMfest, they are on everyone’s radar. Phoenix hit Zero Deduction routines on both days with confidence. Their routine is fun and fast-paced, and they are a great addition to the Small Coed division this season. 

Stingray All Stars Electric 

These Rays stay PLUGGED IN. Electric’s day two performance had us HYPE. The lights are on, the bills are paid, and the BIDS, too! Electric had an event score of 97.825 (the third-highest score at JAMfest), earning them a paid bid. 

Cheer Extreme Code Black

Atomic was one of three teams to Hit Zero on both days, and it looks as if their confidence is growing. We cannot WAIT to see this routine in person. 

Maryland Twisters F5

The Maryland Twisters F5 is back, and we’re here to hail the queen! Their throwback routine is serving up ALL the nostalgia. The Reigning World Champs show no signs of slowing down.

The California All Stars SMOED

SMOED is back once again, and they gave us an early preview of what to expect this season. As usual, SMOED has a sense of calm, cool, and collected vibe on stage. We’re excited to see them take the mat in full force later this season. 

California Pride Big Bang 

California Pride Big Bang is ready to take on the International Non-Tumbling Coed 6 division again. We love California Pride for their clean, innovative routines, and Big Bang is bringing IT this season. Their routine is beautifully choreographed, and their stunts feature several new, fun twists.
