We Are Growing Athletes and New Skills!

 We Are Growing Athletes and New Skills!

During the month of April, Varsity is celebrating our athletes’ accomplishments.  We asked our athletes to write a skill that they have spent time on and worked hard to achieve on a flower so we can hang it up for all to see. 

 

Though we are extremely proud of all the physical skills and accomplishments our students are achieving, the most important growth we see in them is their mindset and determination. 

 

Creating an athlete is far more difficult to achieve than any physical skill.  This particular mindset is what will assist them in not only becoming the best Cheerleader or Dancer they can be, but also teach them how to continually push themselves in their future careers and endeavors.

 

Be sure to stop by and read our April spring flowers to see what our athletes have been working on!
