The Next Level For Recreation Cheer Uniforms

What is The Next Level for Rec League competitive cheerleading uniforms? Cheer Starz, Reach the Beach and Maryland Cup Nationals Champions, Spirit Cheer from Jarrettsville Recreation Center have a few tips to get you there. Their winning cheer uniform is a sight for sore eyes, a silhouette that is stunning on every cheerleader on the squad.

Tip 1: Create a smooth, flattering canvas. A matte-finish, such as the Black DryTech featured in Spirit's rec cheer uniform, is the way to go if you're looking for smooth lines. It's available in in various colors, so you're not stuck with just black. If you're super concerned with hiding unwanted lines, we recommend sticking to a darker shade, but otherwise, you have a choice of more than 30 colors to choose from. There's also a couple added perks to using DryTech, and that's the stretch and wicking technology that's manufactured in the material. It stretches to fit all figures, while also locking away moisture that may cause irritation and discomfort. It's a win win. 

Tip 2: Decorate the most flattering part of the body with dazzling appliques and jewels to draw the eye in the right direction. What muscles do we, as cheer athletes, tend to use the most? We use our arms, shoulders and backs to punch out motions, tumble and lift our flyers, leaving all of those muscle groups looking spectacular. Let's make good use of those solid, sturdy lines, and accentuate them. Spirit Cheer chose a Vinca Mystique and White Sparkle Hologram applique to give their Abstract Vine Sleeve Cheer Uniform Top U169L all the right attention. The colors offset the black with a soft, feminine quality that really gives these ladies a beautiful glow. In the back, they've accented their toned muscles by framing them with an intricate strappy design that, again, looks feminine but also praises the athleticism of the cheerleader.

Tip 3: Bling! We're all striving for champion status here, so why not image that we're all winners. This might just be your season to accept that oversized trophy, all eyes following you. Make sure you look the part of a star. Here, Spirit Cheer went all out with packed clusters of Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, dancing among the mystique and hologram design lines. It's nothing less than star quality.

Tip 4: Don't forget about the bottom. Those legs deserve a little attention as well, and why wouldn't you tie it into the design? It doesn't take much to complete the look. Options for cheer bottoms include uniform skorts and skirts, which include a sewn-in spankies, as well as cheer shorts. Spirit Cheer simply adorned the hem on their Low Rise Single Strip Hem Skirt U713L with the matching Vinca Mystique from the long cheer top, and the two pieces look as those they were packaged together. It's #GKFabulous!

Congratulations to Joshua High School Cheerleaders on their recent win at the Redline Championships in Frisco, TX! They took first place in the Advanced Large Senior Division, and looked awesome doing it!

The ladies from Joshua High School performed in V Neck Triple Stripe Uniform Top U170L and Low Rise 3 Stripe Skirt U723L. The top is comprised of Black Nylon/Spandex and features a fabulous asymmetrical, draping shoulder detail in Royal Mystique, lined with Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, and White Mystique. Blue and white triple striping line both the cheer skirt and the uniform top to elongate the cheerleaders' bodies and to enhances the visual effect of their custom applique embroidered, mystique logo that serves as the focal point of Joshua High Schools' cheerleading uniform. It's strategically covered in Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS to light up the stage and to give the high school cheer uniform a hint of all-star style. Complete with built in spankies, the cheer top and cheer skirt combination looks great on these Redline Champions.

Express Cheer Wins National Championship in GK Cheer Uniforms

Congratulations to the Express Cheer Senior 4.2 team. They are the 2014 NCA National Champions, and they look better than ever in their purple GK Cheer uniform! If you didn't have an opportunity to see this fiercely fabulous team at the last TX competition, there's still time to get an up close and personal view of their awesome GK cheer crop top and skirt! Look for them in Arlington, TX in April when they compete at the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Nationals at the AT&T Stadium.

What will you look for when trying to spot these champions? Out of all the things that GK loves about Express Cheer's uniform, one element impresses us the most. At first glance, we can't help but to enjoy the bold and beautiful visuals that Express Cheer's Black DryTech and shimmering Vinca Mystique fabric combinations lends our eyes, or how their name is spelled out in 100% Clear SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS across their chest. But in taking a closer look, their cheer crop top is very unique, offering a classic scoop neckline for maximum ease of motion and comfort, and a halter strap that leads to a sports bra like strap in the back, giving the design a stylish accent. Then, as we browse photos of other competing teams, the difference is obvious. The GK Cheer uniform on Express Cheer fits better than the rest. The lines in their Low Rise Wrapped Band Skirt 707L, and even their built-in Vinca Mystique boycut spankies, are clean and free of wrinkles or bulk; the crop top fits like a glove; and the girls look comfortable and confident!

When your next competition rolls around, pay attention to the fit and style of your competitors cheer uniforms. If you spot one that's flawless, it's bound to be GK. Check out our wide variety of uniform tops, and cheer skirts to find your team's perfect style and fit. And don't forget about the men on your team. They'll need a matching Men's Cheer Uniform as well.

Gifford Middle School Wins FL State in GK

Congratulations to Gifford Middle School on their win in Daytona Beach at The STATE Cheer and Dance Championships of Florida! Could the winning point have been their awesome GK Uniform? We doubt it, but they definitely drew some positive attention on competition day.  Here's what they told us, "We were at The State in Daytona. Sooooo many compliments on our GK uniforms! Even the sound guy was saying they were his favorite! Thank you so much!"

Gifford Middle School scored big at their competition in a GK Abstract Vine Sleeve Cheer Uniform Top U169L and a Low Rise Flipped Front to Back Skirt U735L which they made their own by incorporating their team colors and logo. On the front, this White Nylon/Spandex ensemble seems simple, but Gifford's bold school colors, represented with Sunshine Mystique and Electric Turquoise Mystique ribbon design lines down the sleeves, really pop on their clean surface. On the back, Gifford's Shiny Sunshine and Turquoise color combo turns into an intricate strappy v back, a feminine design that delicately emphasizes the girls' athletic physique. Since the Gifford logo adds an extra touch Electric Turquoise Mystique on the cheer top, Gifford evened out the design by accenting the intricate back silhouette with the same Turquoise on the curvy design back of the skirt and on the attached spanky. No cheer uniform is complete without a little bling these days, so we added Brilliant SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS along the vine details, strappy back and logo.

Champions like Gifford Middle School Cheerleaders shine bright in talent, demeanor and apparel. Since the uniform requirements vary between schools, GK offers School Fit Cheer Uniforms in addition to the Special Order Uniforms shown above. Browse both categories in our online gallery to choose the winning look best suited to your squad.

Cheer Alliance' Hot new Unis

New Cheer Alliance Cheer Uniforms
"We could not be happier with the way our semi-custom designed GK Cheer Uniforms turned out!  We were able to implement all the special details to our uniform without the custom price tag.

Cheer Alliance; Together Strong has the "CATS" acronym in our name. We were thrilled to find out that we could get "sparkly Cheetah spankies" built right into our skirts, and a claw mark over the shoulder out of the same hot fabric!  It is every cheerleader's favorite part of the uniform. The crisscross back design is so unique and we were able to embroider our "Together Strong" motto right on there.

We started off designing this year's uniform with some prerequisites since the level of tumbling and stunting has advanced so much in cheerleading. It was important to have our uniform made with stretch fabrics that fit right, comfortable to be worn all day, eye-catching on the performance floor and a unique look to represent our organization. Our motions and formation changes really pop with the two different arm colors; it was exactly what we were looking for. Our professional choreographers loved working with and integrating our uniform design into the routine. GK answered all of our wishes, and our cheerleaders' uniforms are on the top of every organization's favorite one of the year!"

Kellie VargaCheer Alliance
Owner, Cheer Alliance

Cheer Alliance' new Uniforms are made from the U108 Special Order Cheerleading Crop Top with Black and White spandex/Drytech stretch fabric. It is accented with a hot Cheetah print "scratches" on the shoulder. The Tops. Alliance is emblazoned across the front with Jewels.
