Indianapolis, IN, March 17, 2013 – The 2013 Champions Cup Cheer and Dance State Nationals is excited to announce the opening of registration for its inaugural, summertime competition in New Orleans, LA, July 14-18th!
With a goal of promoting camaraderie and goodwill among athletes and within the competitive community, The Champions Cup is bringing athletes together in an Olympic- style format to represent state teams across the nation. The Champions Cup is open to all levels and organizations – schools, gyms, studios and special athletes. In keeping with the Olympic-style theme, athletes must try-out for a state team before competing as a Champions Cup athlete in New Orleans.
In order to try-out, athletes must register at www.thechampionscup.us. Cost for registrations is $35. Athletes may attend live try-outs or submit a try-out video. Live try-outs are hosted at gyms across the country and can be found by visiting the event website www.thechampionscup.us. Try-outs take place through April 21st; registration must be completed by March 31, 2013.
“The Champions Cup is designed to be a first-class experience from top-to-bottom,” says founder Patrick Cowherd. The Champions Cup kicks off with an Olympic-style ceremony in a two-part celebration including a parade and humanitarian event where athletes are encouraged to experience and celebrate camaraderie and goodwill before competition gets underway. “The competition itself will be stellar,” says Cowherd, “Thatʼs where the real magic is going to happen… when athletes see and experience what happens when they come together as a new-found team.” The event wraps up on July 19th and 20th with an optional two-day Combine-Recruitment cheer and dance clinic designed to help athletes prepare for opportunities beyond their competitive careers.
Cost to participate in the event is $575 and includes custom state uniforms, backpacks, duffle bags, shoes and many other extras (airfare and lodging are not included). A portion of event proceeds will be reserved for USASF scholarship fund. For more information, or to learn how to become a sponsor, visit www.thechampionscup.us or contact us at 317-703- 7895.
