THE BATTLE AT THE CAPITOL CHEERLEADING CHAMPIONSHIPS
This is the event of the season you absolutely do not want to miss! Can
you imagine a production that is rivaled by none, a life size backdrop
of our Nation's Capitol complimented by a professionally mastered light
show? How about seeing your team's name in lights with a live feed of
your performance on either side of the performance area? How about walking
the "red carpet" while accepting your award? And you thought
that all of this was only done in Hollywood. Not to mention the great
gifts, prizes and prestige that will be bestowed upon the teams left standing
after the…"THE BATTLE AT THE CAPITOL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS"!
"The Battle" as it is aptly nicknamed is being held at the
Patriot Center on the beautiful campus of George Mason University. This
event has grown so much in the last 6 years that it has to be held on
TWO separate weekends! That's right, first up is the All Star weekend,
March 4-6, 2005 to be followed by our Recreation, School and Dance National
Championships being held March 19-20, 2005.
The festivities begin on Friday, March 4, 2005 with a prelude to the
Battle. Many will be competing for the coveted crown of "Cheer Individual
Champion" and "Partner Stunt Champions".
The doors open early on Saturday for the first round of competition….
THE SEMI-FINALS! 3800 Cheerleaders, 5000 plus screaming fans, teams from
over 30 states in one place. Knowing that only 80% of the teams competing
this day will advance to Finals! The pressure is on and all the hard work
has culminated in this moment!
Each weekend will host a night of elegance and sheer fun! The coaches
will be treated to a theme party set in the "Roaring 20's" on
the All Star weekend. Not to be outdone, the Recreation and School weekend's
party is "The Royal Ball". At each gala, we will announce the
winner of the Coach and Parent of the Year! Meanwhile, our parents will
be having fun at the karaoke sing along and the kids will enjoy the Luau
and Beach Bash sponsored by Pepsi!
Day 2 - The FINALS - The elimination round is done and the stage is set
for the biggest showdown of the year! All scores are dropped and you start
with a clean slate! The best of the best will be competing for the coveted
title of NATIONAL CHAMPIONS in more than 58 divisions, not to mention,
over $40,000 in cash prizes, 14 Divisional Champions, 3 Grand Champions,
Program Runner Up and 2 Program Champions! This battle will be a fight
to the finish!
We invite everyone to come and witness this AWESOME event! Tickets can
be purchased at your local Ticket Master outlets or on the day of the
