Langley Flip City all-stars shine at Okanagan event

Flip City Gymnastics’ all-stars shone recently at the Okanagan Cheer Championships.

Flip City sent both their all-star competitive teams and also had three athletes compete individual routines at the Kelowna event, hosted by Okanagan Firestorm Cheerleading and drawing teams from the Okanagan, Interior, Lower Mainland, and Alberta on May 2.

Flip City’s Youth Level 1 team (ages 11 & under) placed first in their age division, won the grand champion title for all Level 1 (highest score), and was the runner-up to the entire competition (second highest score from all teams and levels).

The Junior Level 2 squad (ages 14 & under) came second in their age division.

All of Flip City’s individual results were in the youth category (ages 8 to 11).

Individual routines allow athletes to demonstrate their skills outside of their team performances.

This also gives them opportunity to execute skills beyond the level of their team.

Results were:

Tiana Roode – first place;

Alyssa Andronyk – fourth place; and

Taya Roode – fifth place

Flip City’s coaches are Sherri Vieira, Stephanie Little, Emma Rothwell, and Lauren Atkinson, who is also the program coordinator.

“This year we had many new athletes to mix in with our experienced ones. The season started out a bit rough but the athletes all had potential,” Atkinson said. “Throughout the season they made their way from last place to second place, coming in for a strong finish in first. We knew they had it in them, they just had to continue to work hard to nail their routine almost perfectly.”

For the month of May, Flip City is offering free cheer classes for people to try cheerleading, and hosting an open house May 31 from 1 to 3 p.m. to kick off summer training and next year’s program.
