It’s been an incredible year for this squad of 19 TPPW Jr. Midget Intermediate cheerleaders. They just ended their perfect season by capturing another “National Champion” title at the JAMZ National Championship in Las Vegas on Jan. 29. This amazing team has danced, tumbled, stunted and jumped their way to first place in all of their five competitions which included two “National Championship” titles. No other team in the history of TPPW has accomplished this magnificent feat.

Having a “Perfect Season” doesn’t come easy. This group of 11 – 14 year olds from Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe started on this rewarding journey back in August 2011. They practiced four days a week in August and then three days a week once school started, with many of them taking private gymnastics, as well. It is because of their hard work, dedication to practice and to each other and their outstanding coaching staff that this team was able to achieve such greatness.

“It really was a team effort with not only our coaching staff, but all of our parents and volunteers that supported our team throughout the season. It is such an amazing feeling to have accomplished a perfect season and won these National Championship titles. These girls are a group of dynamic and hardworking athletes who really wanted to win and gave it their all at every practice and competition. I couldn’t be happier for our team,” said Head Coach Alicia Smith.

Their first win was at the Palomar Conference Pop Warner competition in October at SDSU. They next advanced and won the Wescon Regionals in Long Beach in November, which took them to the Pop Warner “Super Bowl of Cheer” in Orlando in December, where they brought home the first National Championship title in history for Torrey Pines Pop Warner and only the second time a team from the Wescon region has won.

Following their National Championship win, they went on to compete at the JAMZ Cheer and Dance Regional competition in Long Beach on Jan. 15 and not only won first place, but captured the “Grand Championship” title by having the highest overall score of all the teams at the competition.  This leads up to their final victory at the JAMZ Nationals held on Jan. 29 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. The team competed against 14 other teams from across the nation to win their second “National Champion” title of the season. They performed flawlessly with the highest score and no deductions from the judges. They were awarded not only a huge trophy, jackets, and medals , but they were ultimately rewarded by having  a “Perfect Season.”
