Joplin, Pittsburg cheer teams headed to Branson

9 Feb

Two area cheer teams are headed to Branson on Thursday to compete in the Worldwide Spirit Association Competition. The Midwest qualifier for the national event is set for the Branson Convention Center through Sunday, and I’m sure the teams from Joplin and Pittsburg could use some support. More than 800 youth from 5-years-old through college age will cheer and tumble their hearts out in hopes of making the cut for nationals. The top five teams will move on to the big show. The Cheer Pit from Pittsburg will represent Kansas and the Flip Shop All Stars from Joplin are among the 45 groups vying for the top spots. The event is free and open to the public. Check out the schedule of events.
