The Hawaii All-Star Cheerleaders are hosting “The Show Offs” on Saturday, March 9, at the War Memorial Gym, beginning at 4 p.m.
“It will feature exhibitions from all the Maui all-star cheer teams so their family and friends can see their competition routines before heading to the mainland,” said Hawaii All-Star Cheerleaders head coach Kealii Molina.
In addition, Molina said 10-time defending champion Hawaii Pacific University cheerleaders will also perform.
Concessions will be available. Admission is a $10 donation.
The Hawaii All-Stars has four competition teams — two Senior Level teams and two Junior Level teams — composed of students from Maui schools. The club’s competition teams are making a two-week trip to California in March.
“We’re looking pretty good,” Molina said. “We’re taking our Senior teams up to the nationals in Long Beach, March 15-16, and we’re taking our Junior teams to defend our titles at the USA Nationals in Anaheim, March 23-24.”
Molina said: “We’re trying to get a bid to the World Summit National Championships in May (4-5).”
The Summit is the premier all-levels national championship competition in Memphis, TN. The Varsity All-Star event is for the best cheer teams from across the country. The Summit hands out bids to a total of 462 teams in 43 divisions — 107 paid bids worth more than $1 million and 355 at-large bids.
