2018-2019 FH Cheer Northern Competitive Team

Jr. Huskies Elite Competitive Team registration and information will be posted here in September 2019.

Hello, FHN Jr Huskies!!!

We are excited to announce that registration for the 2019-2020 Middle School Competition Season will be coming soon! This comp season will be open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders within our community.

Competition Season is a great way to get more involved in the sport of cheerleading. It’s also a great way to show off those skills and get ready for high school cheerleading.

The MHSAA Competitive Cheer format for both middle school and high school teams is unique to our state. SHHH… we have also hear that this format gives our athletes an edge when competing at the collegiate level (no big deal).  

If you have never heard of Michigan Competitive Cheerleading, here is a really quick overview. There are 3 rounds that the high school teams will perform and 2 rounds that the middle school teams will perform.

Round 2 is the first round for middle school, it is the “skills round”.  In this round an athlete along with their team will perform 4 skills in unison. One skill must be a flexibility skill, one a jump, one must be a tumbling skill, and the forth can be from any of the previously mentioned areas. They also have to do this while yelling and punching their motions. Sounds very hard but we promise you IT IS A LOT OF FUN! 

Round 3, the last round for middle school, is a skills and stunting round. In this round you will first see a jump performed by the team in unison. Then together the athletes will perform the round while tumbling and stunting. Most people LOVE watching this round because all of the unique things the athletes learn. 

We know it seems like a lot but we find that most athletes can do it and do it well! Competition season is a great way to show case how challenge this sport can really be while making it fun and competitive for the athletes. 

Interested?

  • Keep a look out for more information and visit the MSHAA website to learn more about the sport of competitive cheerleading. 

I’M IN, but what is the best way to prepare my athlete?

  1. Practice, practice, practice those motions and jumps!!!!
  2. Stretch, Stretch, Stretch those splits!
  3. Look into tumbling with our amazing tumbling company EMPOWER! Tumbling is a skill that needs to be worked on before the season starts. Getting your athlete into a tumbling class will help them grow and prevent in-season injuries. 
We love FOOTBALL SEASON don’t get us wrong…. but we love COMPETITION SEASON more!!!
