As spectators looked around, they couldn't help but marvel at all the gorgeous All Star cheerleading uniforms. Sparkling Swarovski® crystals, vibrant colors, and sleek sublimated designs decorated the Las Vegas Convention Center as more than 2,000 athletes prepared for battle.
Luke Johnson, the All Star Games' Host along with Nastia Liukin, challenged everyone to go above and beyond by showing kindness to their fellow athletes by promoting good sportsmanship throughout the event. It was not uncommon to see athletes wishing their competitors good luck and congratulating them after they performed. It was moments like this that set the 2015 All Star Games a part from any other competition.
Congratulations to all the athletes that competed at the 2015 All Star Games! We can't wait to see you next year! Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to catch all the action from the Games.
We are excited to introduce one of our newest Under Armour Sideline Cheer Sales Representatives, Bridget Wagoner. This seasoned athlete may be from the small town of Brimfield, IL, but she has big ideas on how to bring the most cutting edge cheerleading apparel to Western Illinois.
Bridget was born and raised in Illinois. Cheerleading became a passion for her early on because it has allowed her to leave her mark in the world. She participated in the sport of cheerleading for eight years which eventually led her to perform in the London New Year's Day Parade. While she loves being out on the floor raising spirits and cheering her team to victory, she is incredibly excited for this new step in her career.
Bridget's years of cheering has conditioned her to know exactly what these athletes are looking for, and the new Under Armour® Sideline Cheer Collection is it. A comfortable, yet stylish cheerleading uniform is a must for the sideline cheer teams to keep up their enthusiasm throughout the game. What better way to do that than outfit your team in the industry's most trusted brand, Under Armour® Cheer built with performance DNA.
GK Cheer is proud to be the official cheerleading apparel sponsor of the second annual All Star Games. This exhilarating event is so much more than a competition, it unites aerial sports from all different disciplines under one roof for the most exciting and intense display of extreme sports.
Luke Johnson, founder of the games, made it his mission to have a competition that encouraged creativity, honored athleticism, and inspired performance. Athletes from across the world will come to Las Vegas for one weekend to show off what they've got in one of the five events: team and solo events in Cheer, Stunt, Synchro, Tricking, and Tumbling. Trust us, you haven't seen aerial sports in action until you've attended the All Star Games.
As the official event sponsors, GK Cheer will be selling exclusive event apparel, providing cheer products from our GK All Star, Under Armour Sideline Cheer, and Cirque du Soleil for you to shop, and offering a private design consultation with GK's most experienced cheerleading uniform designer. To ensure you get the chance to create a custom All Star cheer uniform, sign up and choose your desired time slot at registration.
Good luck to all of the athletes competing in the 2015 All Star Games! We look forward to cheering you on from the sidelines.
Top Gun Large Coed redefined the word fierce at the 2015 CheerSport Nationals and NCA Nationals when they debuted a tumbling pass that left everyone awestruck. Using Illusion Hoops designed just for them by GK, these elite athletes practically disappeared right in front the spectators' eyes. Nine of TGLC's female team members tumbled right through the center of these custom designed hoops in an epic display fit for only World Champions. The cheer industry cannot get enough of Top Gun, and honestly, neither can we! Our partnership with them is founded on common goals that cement both Top Gun and GK as the leading trendsetters and innovators in the cheer industry. This partnership continues to push us beyond today's standard, making GK stronger than ever and solidifying our position as the Choice of Champions.
We recently caught up with Top Gun Owners Victor and Kristen Rosario to get the inside scoop on their 2015 CheerSport Nationals and NCA Nationals routine and how they continue to be the most coveted and accomplished cheer empire in the world.
GK: The Cheer industry is going crazy over the Top Gun Large Coed routine at CheerSport earlier this month. Can you tell us about your inspiration for the Illusion Hoop in your latest routine?
VR&KR: Each year we strive to come up with something that will set us apart from the rest of the competition and keep people talking about it for many years to come. We've been wanting to use the idea of the Illusion Hoops for a few years now, but with the help of GK, we finally realized how to make it come to fruition.
GK: Since this concept has never been done before in cheer, it must have taken some time to perfect the creative and technical design. Can you tell us about that process?
VR&KR: It took approximately two months for us to develop the concept and create our own make-shift design at home, then another two months of collaboration with GK to perfect the final design and artwork. After that, it took about a month of choreographing and training this section of our routine to get it looking competition ready.
GK: The Top Gun All Stars have experienced a large amount of growth in the past few years. What helps the gym stay focused on producing the most technically advanced routines in the industry?
VR&KR: For us, it's never been about the placement of our teams that matters as much as our commitment to entertain and inspire others.
GK: Every year, Top Gun continues to exceed expectations, not only in their routines, but also when it comes to their innovative cheerleading uniform designs. Where does your inspiration come from and how do you continue to stay a step ahead of everyone else?
VR&KR: It really is much harder than it seems. It takes the input of many and lots of trial and error to get it correct.
After years of working with Top Gun to provide the fiercest cheerleading apparel in the industry, Victor and Kristen had the utmost confidence that GK would once again be able to design something that's never been seen before. Our production and design development teams worked through the research and development process until to until this cutting edge Illusion Hoop design came to life. We were so honored to get involved with Top Gun All Stars' choreography and making their vision a reality.
Every year, people look forward to see what the Maryland Twisters of Glen Burnie, MD will be sporting at the competition, and this year is no different. They have raised the standard once again with their custom GK cheer uniform and love showing it off!
You can find the Maryland Twister Weathergirls rocking this custom All Star cheerleading uniform, similar to our Sleeve Binding Cheer Crop Top U146. This cheer crop top is the perfect blend between elegant and edgy as brilliant royal drytech creates a faux sweetheart neckline and wraps around to expose a strappy key hole back. Black mystique lays a shimmering background for white mystique and royal drytech to intertwine down the sleeves. Known for their eye for glitter, this cheerleading uniform doesn't not disappoint. Brilliance Swarovski® crystals are generously scattered throughout this crop top and even make up a large portion of the custom applique embroidery across the center chest.
The All Star cheer skirt is equally stunning. Designed in rich royal drytech, contrasting white mystique wrap around side panels give way to the bold black drytech accented waistband. More brilliance Swarovski® crystals sweep across the white style lines on the front of this low rise cheerleading skirt.
