#Who am I, 16 Jan 2016
Today I am a Cheer Competition attendee in Reading, PA.
My three granddaughters are on a competition cheer squad and they all compete on their own separate teams. Well, not my oldest granddaughter, as she is recovering from a broken arm and is still wearing a brace so she is out for another month and a half.
It is truly amazing watching them and their athletic abilities. I am so proud of all the work that goes into their fabulous routines and the level of difficulty is exceptional.
Both of my own daughters were cheerleaders for the school teams. It is an exceptional sport that builds tremendous pride in terms of teamwork, spirit and athletic abilities. The competitive nature of the sport is evident at competitions, yet the pride at being part of a squad is even more prominent.
The competitions can be held all over the geographic area. Today, the location is close, a 30 minute drive. The event opens at 12:00 pm with awards at 7:30 pm.
