Brittany, Kacey, and Ashleigh accept services from Imagine!'s Out & About, and have become good friends over the years. Their friendship started outside Imagine!, however, at a training facility in Denver, practicing tumbling and cheers. These three belong to the Cheer Central Suns squad and compete every year, across the country. This year in Orlando, FL, their team took 1st place at Worlds Competition.
I spoke with Brittany and Kacey about their experience on the squad and learned what it meant to be a Cheer Central Sun.
Kacey - "It's nice to be on stage with all of my teammates. We earned the award together and worked hard for it."
Brittany - "The coaches are friendly and it gets me out of the house. I started in high school and this was my 10th season. We work as a team and help each other out."
The sense of team that Kacey and Brittany reflected on has helped them grow as individuals as well. Their parents chimed in during the interviews to say that they both have become more confident and independent individuals throughout the years. Kacey's mom, Michele, commented that the gym treats them like any other athlete and expects them to work hard at each practice.
