The Family YMCA at Tarrytown, under the direction of Cindy Guzman, started its YMCA Elite All-Stars Cheer program a few months before the pandemic. We are currently offering the program for girls aged 5-18. Practices are approximately 3 times per week. Tryouts are coming soon so if you want more information please contact, Cindy Guzman, Y Cheer Director.
We are very proud of our 2022-2023 Cheer Elite Team as they won the most prestigious invitational in the sport of Cheer, an invite to Nationals held from May 5- 7 2023 at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Disney, in Orlando, FL. Our team won the wildcard bid, scoring the highest out of all teams in our very first competition of the season, which would have enabled us to compete against the best teams in the nation! Participation at Nationals called Summit for All-Star Cheer programs is by invitation only, and it is a testament to how hard our YMCA athletes have worked.
This competition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these girls ranging in age 8 to 16. We initiated a Go-Fund-Me to help offset the expenses of attending this competition but unfortunately did not raise enough funds to attend this year. We are extremely grateful to those that donated and are planning to use these contributions and continue our fundraising efforts for next year's competition. Competitions like the Summit for All-Star Cheer enable our athletes to make lasting friendships and connections with girls from across the country and expose them to college scouts and potential scholarships.
