Watching Elite athletes at the meets made a huge impression on me as well. Good form is expected and Elite athletes have been a testament to excellent coaching!

Hi my name is Alycia Savala, I'm 14 years old, At my preschool graduation they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said "a cheerleader".
I came to Elite 2 years ago because I wanted to learn tumbling but tried out for cheer and have been a crossover on two teams for the past two years. This year I'm on L2 Senior "Rage" and L3 Junior "Wrath".
I enjoy Elite because it's a happy place and it's very fun to be there. I love how we are like a big family.
My cheer goals are to be an amazing cheerleader that the little ones can look up to and see me as a role model. I want to continue cheering with Elite as well as cheer for high school the next 4 years and then continue on cheering in college.
