Langley’s Flip City Cheer dominates

A team of Flip City Gymnastics athletes had extra reason to cheer last weekend.

At the Okanagan Cheerleading Championships in Kelowna, Flip City Cheer competed in the Youth Level 1 Category.

By the end of the competition, they garnered three first place finishes and two second place finishes, two grand champion high scores in their level, and one grand champion overall title.

Allstar cheer is a highly competitive sport, combining gymnastic floor skills with stunting and dance, set to two-and-a-half minutes of upbeat music.

Flip City Cheer originated in 2012 with a small team of 10 athletes.

By 2013 the program grew to 17 athletes between the ages of eight and 12.

“This was the first year for many of the girls in cheerleading, and they trained very hard twice a week to obtain all the skills necessary to be on par with their competitors,” Flip City Cheer program coordinator Lauren Atkinson said.

“It was a very successful season ending on a high note.”

Team members are Kalani Aldag, Alyssa Andronyk, Ella Asher, Indiana Bateman, Tristan Craig, Makena Dodd, Katie Elliott, Teagan Fisher, Alexis Haugen, Faith Lige, Emily Parsons, Jadyn St. Onge, Ryse Sture, Alexa Tod, Taya Roode, Tiana Roode, and Cassie Fisher.

Flip City Gymnastics is hosting a cheerleading open house on Saturday, May 31 at the gym, #4-20279 97th Ave. in Walnut Grove.
