Our team is directed by first year coordinator, Josylnn Cooper and assistant coordinator, Kevin Tyson–both of which are former members of the Atlanta Dream Shooting Stars.
What is your team’s favorite social media outlet?
Stay hydrated. Our games require a lot of energy and stamina. Staying hydrated will prevent fatigue during performances or even while practicing.
What is your team’s strength when it comes to choreography?
We perform a variety of choreography, but hip hop is what we do best!
Our bonding weekend was most memorable. It was a great way to get to know each other–we are definitely a bunch of characters.
What advice would you give to future cheerleaders auditioning for your team?
Preparation is key. Our audition week is quite long and intense, so make sure that you are well prepared physically and mentally.
What is a must have beauty item used by your team?
Red lipstick of course! ; )
