A Note From Coach Mark

School Is Out For Summer (or almost)! 

We've enjoyed seeing a few more relaxed athletes in the gym and can't wait until ALL of our athletes are done with school for the summer! We hope athletes take time during the summer to rest and relax with their families and have fun in the sun; but we also hope they will take the time to set some personal goals. 

Now is the time to devote extra energy to gaining a new tumbling skill, working on building your core, and/or implementing stretch conditioning into your daily schedule.

We would be remiss if we did not take a minute to reflect back to the hard work and dedication that many of our cheer athletes displayed over the past 30 days. Infinity was privileged to have all three Allstar teams receive bids to D2 Summit at the Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando this past May. We were very proud of all of our teams for their extra post-season work and the performances they put on stage. Our Season 10 Senior Level 4 team, Icon, advanced to the Finals and finished 6th in the country after a nearly flawless performance!! And then within a week of returning, we started Season 11!

We look forward to seeing all of our cheer athletes this week and parents in a few weeks to GET THIS SEASON STARTED!!!!! We are so excited about this year's teams - we have extremely high expectations!

Summertime Sweets

It’s that time of year again! Ice cream, popsicles, and cold drinks are the sweets we crave during summer. But our kids are already eating an average of 19 teaspoons of sugar per day, which is three times the recommended 6 teaspoons. Add in some ice cream or a couple popsicles and we could have a problem.

Did you know that a half a cup of Breyers Ice Cream has 20 grams of sugar? And that ice cold coke has 42! So, what can we do? How can we curb our intake of our favorite summer time treats, especially for our kids?

We put our faith in old friend: fruit. Fruit is nature’s treat and is a great replacement for other sugary treats. Summer sees an array of in-season fruits. Try branching out to something new like passion fruit or stick to something you know you love like cherries or berries. Watermelon is also a great summertime favorite. Fruit parfaits with plain yogurt and granola is an easy way to mix it up! Just try to go for a granola that is low in sugar, or make your own! Instead of stocking your freezer with popsicles this summer, stock it with frozen fruit and make a delicious smoothie.

Sure, going out for ice cream after a baseball game or snacking on a popsicle at the pool are both perfectly acceptable. Try to replace with fruit, fruit smoothie or a fruit parfait whenever you can!


Expand Your Cheer Vocabulary
Is There Really a Level 6?

Yep! As if the allstar cheerleading rules and regulations aren't already complicated enough, the 2019-2020 Season brings changes to the competition levels changing Level Restricted 5 to Level 5 and changing Level 5 to Level 6.

We are often asked what the difference between the levels are. (There are not enough hours in the day to even try to explain every detail. And even if there were, they are subject to change at ANY time during the season. And trust us, THEY DO!!)

With that said, age, tumbling ability and stunting are the most common ways to be able to match athletes to levels. More specifics for age and tumbling outlined below:

The current age grid for the levels in which Infinity currently competes, outlines athletes who are within the following range as of August 31, 2019:

Tiny - 5-6 years old
Mini - 5-8 years old
Youth - 5-11 years old
Junior - 5-14 years old
Senior - 11-18 years

Some examples:
  • Level 1 - Standing Tumbling: at least a forward roll to a back walkover
  • Level 2 - Standing Tumbling: at least a standing back handspring to a back walkover back handspring
  • Level 3 - Standing Tumbling: at least a back handspring series to a back handspring step out back handspring combo
  • Level 4 - Standing Tumbling: at least a standing back tuck to a jump back handspring series to back tuck
  • Level 5 - Running Tumbling: at least a round off full to a round off whip back handspring full
  • Level 6 - Running Tumbling: at least a cartwheel full to a front full
