Weekend Review

February 6, 2024

WE CAME - WE SAW - WE DUELED 🌴

We came, we saw, we dueled. We spent the weekend in Palm Springs for Spirit Sports Grand Nationals 2024, and it was a spectacular display of West Coast cheerleading with a few of our East Coast friends who joined the party. After watching 70 Worlds-division performances, we can confidently say that the West Coast has some of the best cheerleading in the world. (Catch highlights from the event on our Instagram!)

 

There were five Cheerleading Worlds bid events across the USA and Canada, 60 total cheer events, and hundreds of bids awarded last weekend. Check out the top scores, leaderboards, and Worlds bid competition highlights below.

Our Favorite Performances

South Coast Cheer Fearless

The most consistent team in cheerleading continues their reign! After two days of zero-deduction routines, Fearless remains undefeated and the champions of clean, consistent cheerleading. 

The California All Stars Black Ops

Black Ops undoubtedly had the loudest crowd at Spirit Sports. They blew the roof off with their zero-deduction day two performance, which still has us buzzing. 

Twist & Shout Diamonds

Twist & Shout Diamonds came to show the West Coast how they do it. Diamonds have found their groove and had two solid performances, including a day two HIT. Their performances earned them a full paid bid to The Cheerleading Worlds 2024 and the fourth-highest score of the weekend. 

The California All Stars Rangers 

The California All Stars Rangers debuted this weekend, and it packed a PUNCH! Their confidence, hard-hitting skills, and wow moments left the crowd mesmerized. 

The California All Stars SMOED 

SMOED is BACK, and the Spirit Sports curse is BROKEN! SMOED put on two incredible performances this weekend and had the highest score both day one and two. The Global Coed 6 division is heating UP, and we cannot wait for the showdown at NCA. 

CSG Grand Nationals 2024 took place February 3-4, 2024, in Schaumburg, Illinois. You can find the final results, including scores and bid winners for Worlds teams, here
