January 23rd, 2016  Metchosin, BC (ISN) – Before August 29th, 2015 you would have been hard pressed to find a competitive cheerleading gym in Victoria, or Vancouver Island for that matter. Then came Island Elite Cheerleading to Victoria, offering the Island’s first Allstar cheerleading gym to offer high calibre instruction and competition for local, children and young adults.  Under the guidence of co-owners Kate Bell and Mishan Hedge, both Level 5 USASF certified coaches, as well as a handful for senior and junior level coaches, Island Elite Cheerleading has taken Victoria by storm, filling a much needed niche for those interested in high calibre cheer instruction and competition.

 

Fast forward to Saturday evening, January 23rd, 2016 as Island Elite prepares to take their skills south of the border to Bellvue, WA with three teams to compete in the ATC International Cheerleading Championships on January 29 – February 1st, 2016. All three teams performed at Royal Bay Secondary Highshool in front of family and friends in preparation for there competiton next weekend.

ISN photographer Erich Eichhorn was in attendance Saturday night and offers us a glimpse through his lense of our local international representatives and thier phenomenal cheer, strength and acrobatic skills. Good Luck Island Elite Cheer !
