Cheerforce Jets go to Saskatchewan for major Western Canadian meet

The Cold Lake Cheerforce Jets recently went to one of the biggest cheer competitions in Saskatchewan.

The cheerleaders went to the Warman Cheer Classic from March 11-13 against many teams from across Western Canada, in coincidentally the same meet that the group last participated in before the shutdown of 2020.

“We were thrilled to attend this year’s Warman Cheer Classic with no masks or restrictions, bringing 11 teams and 6 individuals/duos,” said coach Viola Hanson. 

The Cheerforce Jets took the ‘Hit Zero’ champions award from the meet, which means their gym had the highest amount of zero deduction routines out of all gyms in attendance. 

‘Zero deductions’ in cheerleading means the routine was executed without any falls, athlete touch downs, stunting errors or out of level skills, which has been challenging this season, said Hanson.
