Extreme Edge hits its mark

(Continued)

"The season usually officially starts in August and lasts through the spring," said Helms. "But most programs offer classes in the summer. The practice hours are just not as stringent."

Currently, Xtreme Edge's athletes practice on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. "Our mini's, age 8 and under, practice four to five hours a week and our senior team, age 18 and under, practice between five and six hours each week," said Helms.

In competition since November, the teams captured Xtreme Edge's third national title and earned the opportunity to perform at the Colt's Holiday Halftime Show when the Colts played the Jaguars.

"The Holiday Halftime Show was performed for more than 67,000 fans at Lucas Oil Stadium and showcased the talents of Indiana's cheerleaders and dancers," said Hall.

The teamed also traveled to St. Louis, Mo., to compete in the ASC's Northern Express Nationals where both teams received first place.

"National Champion trophies and banners were awarded to both teams and every athlete received a t-shirt and jacket," said Hall.

In addition to competitions in the state, Xtreme Edge will be competing in Texas in March and Chicago in April. "Going to these competitions is a great learning opportunity for our teams," said Helms.

To help cover the travel expenses for the teams, a benefit dinner will be held Feb. 16 at Antioch Christian Church. Tickets will be $9 for adults with a reduced rate for children.

Athletes competing with Xtreme Edge are Annabelle Blake, Sophia Brookhart, Daylin Camp, Destany Chambers, Sakura Dailey, Xander Dailey, Sydney Dame, Kennedy Edwards, Cora Edwards, Lauren Fuqua, Jaylyn Hawk, Paytan Hawk, Shaylyn Hawk, Liberty Holtsclaw, Zeus Marsh, Emma Meredith, Paighton Parsons, Kirsten Purdue, Hope Senger, Lauren Tollett, Lillian Willis, Lillian Wilson and Sabrina Wilson.

In an effort to introduce others to cheer leading, Xtreme Edge will be hosting a "ONE LOVE" cheer clinic on Feb. 15 at the gym. All ages and ability are invited to participate. Tryout and competition information will also be available that day. Ages 8 and under are invited to participate from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and those age 9 and over are invited from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

For information on Xtreme Edge, find them on Facebook or call 890-9933.
