Season Recap

Here’s a look back at some of the winners from the Level 5 International Open division from some of this season's major events! Will these teams medal at The Cheerleading Worlds 2019? We can’t wait to watch these incredible teams take the Worlds mat!

NCA All-Star Nationals 2019

Cheer Sport Great White Sharks

Great White Sharks gave fans a preview of what they can expect at Worlds back in March when they won NCA. Great Whites are always known for their innovative stunting transitions. Check out their elites to see them making their spinning skills look effortless even from a prone!

Cheer Central Suns Midnight will be one of the U.S. teams fighting for one of the 3 spots to represent their country in Finals at Worlds 2019. 

Midnight fell short to Great White Sharks earlier this season at NCA but something tells us that they've let that motivate them as they prepared to head to Orlando for Worlds. They know how to bring the energy in their performances and leave it all on the mat every time they take the floor. 

USA All Star Championships 2019

The California All Stars Sparkle

The California All Stars Sparkle is always a well-known leader in this division. Over the past few years, they've made a name for themselves as one of the highest ranked International Open Level 5 teams from the U.S. 

Sparkle earned titles this season at USA All Star Championships and UCA All Star Nationals. Sparkle didn't get the hit that they were looking for in Orlando at UCA which only makes the drive even stronger to return to Orlando for Worlds to put on an unforgettable performance. 

The Cheerleading Worlds is only weeks away! See who the FloCheer team thinks will take home the Globe!
