If you joined us for the 16th annual Woodlands Elite parent showcase, you probably still have the "We are Woodlands Elite" chant ringing in your ears. The showcase was an exciting day for family and friends as they got to witness their beloved athletes take the mat for the first time in the new season.

The athletes put their sparkly new uniforms on for the first-time Sunday and it all suddenly became real: Competition season is only three weeks away.

A team’s first performance sets a foundation for athletes and coaches to build on as the season progresses. For the showcase, coaches are by no means hoping for a flawless routine. This early in the season you can guarantee bobbles and falls as teams are still building their chemistry and perfecting their new skills.

With that being said, the Woodlands Elite teams absolutely showed out!

If you couldn't make the trip to Houston for the season kickoff, here are 9 must watch routines from the showcase.

Colonels - Small Junior Coed 5

The Colonels were the first team of the day to take the mat and they awakened the crowd with a bang! A highlight of the routine was a bounce-back pass performed down the center mat by Colonels' lone male athlete. 

Colonels' elite sequence was one of the most creative that we witnessed this weekend. It began with a slinky like back bend transition that really brought a unique visual element to their sequence. Check it out at :53!

Bombers - Large Junior Coed Restricted 5

Bombers opened up their routine with powerful tumbling that set the tone for the rest of the routine. Their standing tumbling section, similar to Black Ops, was the highlight of their routine.

Raptors - Large Senior Coed Restricted 5

Raptors incorporated a unique barrel roll at 1:00 that transitioned into their invert immediate arabesques. They continued their creative choreography throughout their routine as they finished off with a dynamic pyramid that we can't wait to see again under the competition lights.

Commanders - Small Senior Coed Restricted 5

If there is one thing Woodlands Elite does right, it's tumbling. Every team is serving up incredible tumbling sections and the Commanders were no exception. Commanders' ending pyramid seemed to still be under construction but we cant wait to see the final product!

Generals - Small Senior 5

The Generals don't play! They open up with toe touch fulls before moving into beautifully timed kick double baskets. Peep the awesome bounce back pass at :38!

The ladies delivered a near-flawless elite sequence featuring a new invert. Having all five stunt groups hit their elite was a big win for the Generals this early in the season.

This team definitely has what it takes to win big, and we can't wait to see where the year takes them.

G.I. Janes - Medium Senior 5

The award for sassiest routine of the weekend goes to G.I. Janes! These ladies were pedal to the metal for the full routine and proved they are in it to win it this season. The squad opens with a synchronized one to fulls before moving into their challenging elite sequence. This is a much-watch performance at competition this season.

Recon - Small Senior Coed 5

Recon's pyramid was the shining moment of their routine. They started the sequence by tossing two top girls up and across the front to then jump rope swing them into the first structure.

Black Ops - Medium Senior Coed 5

If Black Ops would have only performed their opening tumbling and then walked off the mat, we would have been completely content. This team is full of raw talent and that was apparent within the first 10 seconds of the routine. 

Dressed in their new black uniforms, the squad finished their running tumbling section with three bounce back passes that transition immediately into their high-flying pyramid.

The team had a few mistakes, as expected this early in the season, but they came back out and performed a second time to fix a few stunt and tumbling errors.
