River City All Stars Know How Cheerleading Championships Are Won

We just love these cheer fashionistas from River City All Stars in River City! Not only is this team on the next level of cheer uniforms, but they are way ahead of the game. That's why we've officially moved them to the top of our hot all star cheer uniform list! GK isn't the only group looking at River City All Stars either; cheerleading judges have also taken an interest in them. At the UCA Hawkeye Classic, River City All Stars won overall best jumps and stunts, and they were the Champion Spirit Group Midwest Championships, as well as overall youth champions at the CSA Grand Finale. UCA All Star Nationals is up next! 

The River City All Stars couldn't look better in this sleek, modern, special order Off The Shoulder Cheer One Piece Uni U1101. The one piece uniform is a concept rapidly growing in popularity. As you can see, it lends itself to so many design possibilities. Here, River City took a Purple Nylon/Spandex uniform and wrapped it in faux ribbons of Iced Zebra and Black Nylon/Spandex for an animalistic torso design that can't be missed. The same zebra print adorns their asymmetrical neckline and separates the Purple Nylon/Spandex and Black Mesh on their sleeves, creating unique visuals that will stimulate their cheer audience's senses. But the best element of this one piece cheer uniform is the "one-piece!" Throughout River City's routine, while tumbling, stunting and dancing, the girls never have to worry about something falling out of place. It's all there in one stunning, form-fitting, and comfortable package. Add a splash of Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS to the mix, and you have yourself a team of shining, fashion-forward champions. Way to go, River City! You look out-of-this-world gorgeous!

Sometimes it takes a big leap to step outside of the box, but in this case, what awaits you on the other side is a sense of pride and uniqueness that you won't discover otherwise. Take it to the next level with a One-Piece Cheer Uniform, where your glory awaits you. If you prefer a little assistance with the design process, our Cheer Account Managers are always happy to share their artistic expertise.

All Stars Australia Stand Out In GK

Based in Melbourne, Elite All-Stars is one of the fastest growing All-Star gyms in Australia. Beginning with only 20 students in 2011, the program has 3 competitive All-Star teams and several recreational squads and now has a beautiful state of the art facility for training. After substantial growth, the team knew they were ready for a stylish and a statement-making, comfortable look. 

Elite All-Stars coach shares, " I personally feel that uniforms represent that program. It's the first thing people will take notice of when you walk onto the competition floor.  Spectators make judgements based on the uniforms and it becomes the image of your program. Having viewed numerous uniform companies from around the world, I always knew I wanted to go with GK. GK has revolutionized cheerleading apparel around the world, set trends and has designs that cater for all ages."

The team debuted their GK uniforms at their first local competition this past June, and the athletes were so excited to show them off! Elite's Youth team debuted their tiny, mini and youth uniform in their first performance of the year. Coach adds, "As they warmed up, other clubs began taking notice and commenting on how gorgeous the uniforms were. During the award ceremony for their division, I had parents approaching me and congratulating me on how age appropriate the uniforms were and how much the uniforms stood out. Some people even stated that they were so focused on how sparkly and pretty the uniforms were and that they forgot to watch the routine! Needless to say that my youth team didn't want to take the uniform off after they had finished. They loved the attention they were receiving."

Elite's Youth Team is pictured above in GK Cheer's Off the Shoulder 3 Strap Cheer One Piece Uniform U1101. The team selected this sleek look in Gold and Black Mystique, White DryTech, and Black Mesh for an interesting mix. Scattered throughout bodice and arms are bandage inspired striped designs in Black and Gold Mystique with Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS for added glamour.

Elite All-Star's senior team was thrilled to show off their new GK uniforms in front of a packed stadium. The coach humorously said, "Probably the best way to describe the reaction from everyone was mouths open and lots of drool. The photos do not capture how much these uniforms sparkled, the minute they hit the competition floor you heard gasps and lots of WOW's. I had wanted to design a uniform for the seniors that was strappy, sparkled and a uniform Australia had never seen before. I was hesitant due to the mesh sleeves. Having never had a team with mesh sleeves before I didn't know how they would withstand stunts or if they would scratch their arms. These uniforms are so well made that after they had competed they still looked brand new. Like the Youth team I had spectators, clubs, parents and coaches approaching me. I had several coaches from other clubs inquiring how they could purchase the uniform just to wear around home because it was SO BEAUTIFUL! Elite All-Stars would like to say a huge thank you to GK who has made the whole process fun and exciting! We can't wait to show them off again at next competition."

Shown below is our Abstract Vine Sleeve Cheer Crop Top U169 with cool strappy back design. The girls love the open criss-cross back, square neck crop top chosen in Black, Gold, and White Mystique with Black Mesh sleeve accents. To top it off, the Brilliance SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS delicately fill in around the vine sleeves and display their custom "Elite" logo. Our elastic waistband Low Rise Round Edge Cheer Short U525L is the perfect finishing touch with it's curved crystalized styling on front and back of hips and narrow accent stripe along front.

Erica shares, "After looking at many catalogs, I knew GK was where I wanted to order through. The designs were up and coming and very chic and sporty."

The girl's team recently attended the Battle at the Beach in Myrtle Beach and were told if there was an award for prettiest uniforms on stage, it would've gone to them. Charm is known among parents and other athletes to have the cutest purple uniforms. The girls feel great in their new cheerleading apparel and had a wonderful 4th season in 2012-2013.

The girls from Charm are so excited to begin another season and their coach remarks, "Thank you to GK Cheer for helping us design uniforms that get our athletes noticed and make them feel like the stars I know they are."

Charm is wearing GK's Cheerleading Crop Top U145 in Purple Nylon/Spandex, White Mesh and Gold Mystique. The top features a White Mystique Custom Appliqué of their team name Charm along with Gold Hologram Sequinz. If you like this top you might want to check out our Sleeve Binding Cheer Crop Top U146 a V neck cheerleading uniform crop top with 3 stripe binding long sleeves and strappy open back.

Congratulations to GK's Cash for College Scholarship Winners!

GK is excited to announce the winners of the first ever Cash for College Scholarship Contest!   The goal of GK's Cash for College Scholarship was to recognize and reward the volunteer efforts of high school juniors and seniors across the country.  Cheerleaders are dedicated athletes who spend long hours at the gym, yet, many still find time to give back to their community.  GK wanted to shine a light on those exceptional individuals to share with the world that kindness and support for one another goes well beyond the cheer gym.

The Grand Prize winner of a $1,000 Scholarship is Lacey Dunn from Peachtree City, Georgia!  Lacey plans on heading to Clayton State University after graduation.  She currently cheers for her high school's varsity squad and for Ace All Star Cheerleading. 

Lacey said, "Cheerleading and volunteering are both huge aspects in my life.  I love to dedicate my time to helping others and changing their lives for the better! Volunteering has taught me that helping others not only benefits them, but it makes you happy! It's a way to share love to others and touch their lives."

Lacey has spent time volunteering at local animal shelters and has assisted in running summer cheer programs for youth at her school.  "Cheerleading and volunteering have brought me so much joy and I hope to do both in my life through college and beyond," Lacey said.

Congratulations Lacey on your $1,000 Scholarship from GK!

 

The Second Prize winner of a $500 scholarship is Alyssa Dasca from Costa Mesa, California.  Alyssa attends Costa Mesa High School and is a member of her school's cheerleading squad.

Alyssa told GK, "Throughout my high school cheerleading career, I have been actively involved in community service with my team.  Each year, as a team we donate over 10,000 hours to community service."  Alyssa talked about how a commitment to community service strengthens her squad as a group and how she has gained tremendous personal reward from her volunteer activities.

Alyssa continued, "Doing so much community service at such a wide variety of events has helped me become a better person and it has helped me to understand the difficulties that others face." 

Congratulations Alyssa on your $500 Scholarship from GK!

 

The Runner-up and winner of a $250 scholarship is Lauren Deutscher from Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Lauren will be attending North Carolina State University in the fall in Raleigh, North Carolina.  For the last four years she has cheered with the Virginia Wild All Stars.

 

"Helping out others, seeing the impact, knowing someone is better off now that they received help are all benefits that come from volunteering and helping out others in the community," said Lauren in her submission to GK.  Lauren talked about how cheering for Virginia Wild for the past four years has granted her many, many opportunities to volunteer and touch the lives of those in her community and how she has grown as a person, coach, and athlete as a direct result of those opportunities. 

Lauren said, "Seeing how much something simple can touch others inspires me to volunteer and I will continue to volunteer in college." 

Congratulations Lauren on your $250 Scholarship from GK!

 

GK would like to thank all those fantastic and volunteer-oriented cheerleaders who applied for the Cash for College Scholarship Contest. We received many inspiring entries.  GK is proud to be part of a sport that reaches outside of itself to help in so many ways and wherever possible.  We are equally proud to outfit cheerleaders - from custom uniforms to practice wear and everything in between.  Check out the 2012 Cheer Catalog here.

Different is Better. Be Different.

Trinity All-Stars Shine in Custom GK Cheerleading Uniforms

Trinity All-Star Cheerleading out of Powell, Ohio needed a new cheer uniform, but they didn't want anything already seen in competition.  They wanted their own custom design.  One call to GK Representative Lori Johnson got things started.  Lori worked with Kelly Winbigler and Michael Render, Co-Owners of Trinity All-Stars Gymnastics and Cheerleading, to navigate the journey from idea, to sketch, to sample - to the finished custom cheer uniform.   
TAS 1

"We have received compliments from other teams and coaches on our GK Cheerleading Uniforms at every competition due to our unique design.  There is really nothing out there today that is anything like it.  With Lori's help, the design process was easy and timely.  From sizing to delivery, GK exceeded our expectations.  Sizing was well organized and fast and we received our uniforms earlier than expected!  The fit of the uniforms is above par compared with any other uniform company.  The 4-way stretch allows our athletes to move withTAS 2 ease in competition.  Most importantly, our athletes and families love our GK uniforms, not only for the style, but also for the ease of care.  THANKS GK!  WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU DO FOR COMPETITIVE CHEERLEADING AND GYMNASTICS!”

Black Sylktech, Silver Mystique and Kelly Sparkle fabrics were chosen to create Trinity's custom creation.  The large star design on the front of the cheer top provides a shimmering background for the distinctive Trinity logo.  The style lines that wrap around the entire cheer top are what Trinity envisioned and
Trinity comp.
are an original concept not seen in the pages of our catalog. Their cheer uniforms truly started from scratch. The team boldly spelled out TRINITY in clear crystals for more sparkle - adding the name to the back of their custom uniform.

Check out some of the members of Trinity's Sr. Level 5 in their custom creation! Trinity also has a Jr. Level 3, Youth Level 2, Mini Level 1 and new for 2012 - a recreational youth/junior team.  They collected several 1st place awards in 2011 and a National Championship title.

How To Choose The Perfect Cheerleader Uniform

Now that you have a cheerleading squad in place, the next important thing is to zero in on youth cheerleading uniforms that are just perfect! Making a decision in this regard is not simple and with the overwhelming variety before you, it can become quite a daunting task. Here are some tips we'd like to offer to contribute our two cents towards your decision:

Youth Cheerleading Uniforms1. Rules Are Meant To Be Broken. NOT!: Some schools have strict regulations regarding the amount of skin cheerleaders are allowed to display. Take those into consideration before you go uniform hunting.

2. Budget It Right: Calculate how much you are willing to spend and then look for the best uniforms that fit within your range.

3. Team It Right: Keep the whole team in mind before you decide which one garment will adorn all the cheerleaders. There are some uniforms that look good on lean and tall cheerleaders, but may be uncomfortable for shorter ones.

4. Color Capers: Often, the best color to go for is your school color. If you can get a good uniform in that color, awesome!

5. Comfort Matters: Comfortable cheerleaders are happy cheerleaders. Have a few of them try out the uniform before you make your purchase to make sure that the cheerleading bodysuit is comfortable.

Have any questions regarding cheerleader uniform selection for your squad, ask away! So you want to purchase one? Get in touch with us. Check us out on Facebook.
