Coed Cheer/Flip Mode Squad: Welcome
***PLEASE CHECK THE NEWS SECTION FOR IMPORTANT MEETING INFO***
WOOOOHOOO!!!! Big ups to everyone who joined us for our very 1st cheer field trip! Thanks to all the parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends who made it happen, especially because it almost didn't! Here's the gist:
1. Our bus company, Ransom Transportation, did not show up at 10am as contracted.
2. Coach Nina called around for about an hour plus until she got SOMEBODY (Legacy Transportation) to come get us!
3. While we waited, we learned a new stunt and worked on cheers, motion tech, and old stunts (way to go!).
4. We finally got there, and Erica fromn CSG took us through the warm up and behind the scenes, and Coach Nina explained exactly how a competition would go.
5. We ate lunch, looked at all the cool souvenirs and then watched Senior L3 groups perform.
6. We left at 2:15pm, and arrived to awesome parents awaiting us all.
I have a game tape, or CD of what we missed, so when we get to practice one school starts, we can watch it and critique. Now we are gearing up for our very 1st competition, 10/30/11! Check the hand outs page for the permission slip, and the calendar for the next events!
*****Very special thank you to Alyssa's mom for chaperoning and riding in the other van! You're the BEST******

Welcome to the Cheer & Flip Mode Home page for CGW!
Clinics and tryouts are underway! JV and Varsity rosters will be posted Friday, September 1, 2011. But if you can't wait for the news, check our NEWS link Thursday Night as it will also be posted online!
We are gearing up for a great season this year. Last year, JV earned the 5th best spot in the entire CPS league, and Varsity earned 1st place in the Xtreme Spirit Competition at Navy Pier! Check out our awesome banners and trophies in the case near the Principal's Office. But before we win any trophies or step foot on any game floor, we are scholars, FIRST. SO, concentrate on doing your best in class and for your homework. Work hard to gather all the knowledge CGW has to offer you, so that you can create a great scholastic foundation for the rest of your life--high school, college, and beyond.
