Are you they type of person who loves to have a ton of fun and help the community? Do you wish to push yourself to the extremes and take part in the one of the most physically demanding sports out there? Do you like to cheer on and support the LGBT community? If so, then Cheer Salt Lake has a place for you.
Cheer Salt Lake has been rocking it as SLC’s sassiest LGBT-friendly sports team since starting in 2011. As members of the Pride Cheerleading Association (PCA) we raise money for people living with HIV/AIDS through the high-flying sport of cheer. We accept all ages (20 and over), body times and abilities. In fact, some of the oldest and sassiest members of our sister PCA team are in their mid 50s, and they are not about ready to stop any time soon! So if you think you are too old to cheer, think again.
This year we are looking to fill up to 10-12 spots, so we can build some impressive collegiate-level stunts and perform well above the last three years. Also we have a new uniform design that is going to make the team look absolutely amazing.
Our performances include:
Main Stage at San Francisco Pride
Main Stage at Las Vegas Pride
Main Stage at Provo Pride
Opening of the Salt Lake AIDS Walk
Opening of Utah Pride
Cheering on the Wasatch Roller Derby & Utah Blitz Women’s football team And much more
We practice every Tuesday night at Utah Xtreme Cheer in Sandy from 7:45-10 p.m. We practice stunting, tumbling, dancing, motions, jumps and everything that makes cheerleading awesome.
Wether you are gay, straight, bi, transgender or a bear, butch or femm, you really should give pride cheerleading a try! Please visit http://cheersaltlake.org to apply to the team. We will be taking new members throughout the months of June and July, so apply now!
