At the USA Regional Qualifier, in Antioch California, North Valleys Cheer and Stunt competed and succeeded in collecting 3 USA National qualifying bids: Advanced Stunt Group #1, all girl, took 5th place, and Advanced Stunt Group #3, all boy, took 4th place. In addition North Valleys Cheer and Student took 1st place in the Large Group Co-ed Varsity Routine, qualifying for the coveted USA National Competition.

The North Valleys High School Cheer & Stunt prides itself on teaching and upholding the fundamentals of cheerleading and stunts. These athletes and coaching staff work hard to instill the values of discipline, respect, hard work, goal setting and the joy of competition. This is how North Valleys Cheer and Stunt were able to work together to gain each bid for USA Nationals. Also, with the help of Five Star Athletics, they have been able to help prepare the team to compete at a national level and be successful as well.

At this time North Valleys Cheer and Stunt is looking for sponsors to help send them to USA Nationals Cheer Competition in Disneyland, on March 28th-30th. There are lots of costs that will be placed on these athletes, that have made it to the national level, and any help would be greatly received. This is a group of hard working student athletes, and they have grown tremendously in their ability and drive to be national competitors. This opportunity is going to be something that they will work diligently for and remember for a life time; along with those who helped them to make this a reality for them.
