Berkeley Bear Cubs

This last weekend was a busy one for us. On Saturday we went to an Easter party, which I'll be sharing soon, and on Sunday Ava had her second cheerleading competition.

Ava has been taking cheerleading lessons with Young Champions since September last year. At the end of each 10 week (or so) session a competition is held between groups from the Bay Area and beyond. You may remember Ava's first cheerleading competition with her team Berkeley Stars which was held back in January. You can see it here.

This time around Ava's team was called Berkeley Bear Cubs. If you're not familiar with Berkeley then let me just point out that the sporting teams at the university here are all called Cal Bears, hence our little ones choosing the name Bear Cubs.

Ava's team of eight competed against a large team from Oakland and an absolutely massive team from San Leandro. They came in third and were pretty excited about their medals. All of the kids did a fantastic job and we were very proud of them.

Here's the Berkeley Bear Cubs cheer...

All of the competing kids receive a place medal as well as a trophy for competing. Ava is pretty excited to have more trophies and medals to add to her growing collection! She'll have another medal coming next week for perfect attendance plus a new coloured pom pom to show that she has moved up to the next level.

So happy with her trophy and medal


Go Berkeley Bear Cubs!
