The Team That Can't Be Beat: The California All Stars Black Ops

A new world champion was crowned in almost every division at The Cheerleading Worlds 2019. In the Senior Medium Coed division, one team has held on to the throne for three years straight. 

The California All Stars Black Ops is the team that can’t be beaten. In April, Black Ops claimed their third consecutive World Championship title.

“We are beyond blessed and honored to have won Worlds the past three years,” said coach Neda Emamjomeh. “It still really has not set in at all.” 

Emamjomeh believes the program has continued to stay at the top due to the foundation the program has laid for its Worlds teams. The California All Stars have built a strong culture for excellence and that was clear as the team executed yet another iconic routine in Orlando.

Even though Black Ops is still celebrating their big win, as soon as they returned to Livermore, California, the team got right back to the grind to prepare for 2020.

“Summer practices have been awesome,” Emamjomeh said. “We use the summer as a time to get to know our kiddos and solidify our rosters while giving them some time off to have fun with each other.”

Black Ops 2019-20 is looking stronger than ever and they are ready to work for another title.

“This season you should expect dynamic and difficult stunt sections and a high-energy, high-volume routine! Our routine is always evolving, and we are stoked to have more tumbling than we have ever had before! Can't wait for everyone to see what we have been working on.”

While every Worlds team has a goal of championship excellence, Black Ops has set some goals that mean more than just winning titles.

“Our goals are always to instill life lessons and core values into our kids that will last their lifetime,” Emamjomeh added. “We want to make each of our athletes have the confidence to conquer the world and be the best they can be every single day!”

Will Black Ops tack on another World Championship title in 2020, or will another Senior Medium Coed team take the crown? We can’t wait to find out as the season unfolds!
