EDMONTON, AB. – The Energetic Edge Cheer Association was in St. Albert competing at the Western Cheer Challenge over the weekend.

The event was the first for youth and junior cheer teams and they didn’t disappoint. In the Youth Level 1 division, Enchant captured second place, while the Extreme won the Junior Level 1 division.


“It’s our third season,” said head coach Christina Brace. “We travel to two competitions a year with the second one coming up in April in Kelowna. We also plan to host a community showcase at Dr. Kearney on May 5th. The kids practice three days a week during the competitive season.”

The Youth team is made up of cheerleaders from aged 6 to 11 while the Junior team is comprised of kids aged 11 to 14. There is also a pre-school recreational team and a mini prep team that will compete in Kelowna.
