Hoffman Estates welcomes top cheerleaders

November 14, 2017 by  

The IRCA 10th annual Cheerleading and Dance State Championship is taking place over three days next month in Hoffman Estates, presented by the Illinois Recreational Cheerleading Association.

At the end of the three days, one team will be named ‘Best in the State’. The public is welcome to watch the competition free of charge.

Fees for teams are $135 for IRCA member teams per athlete, and $145 for nonmembers. Those participating are expected to be teams from high schools and recreational organizations. Medals will be awarded to the top three teams in various categories, but everyone competing will receive a participation medal.

There will be a couple of social events for the teams and their families. The X-Party, to be held on December 2 at the Holiday Inn and Suites Elgin, is a dance event carrying the theme of ‘Spirit of Fun’. On the same night, there is a special party for grade 8 and high school students only. Club Cheer will be held from 7:00 to 10:00 PM, and tickets to each event are $25.

The organizer may work with a Hoffman Estates printing company to provide T-shirts and other official merchandise that will be available.

The IRCA Cheerleading and Dance State Championship will be held at the Sears Centre Arena from December 1 to 3. Call 847-619-6838 to learn more about competing or attending.
