— Steamboat’s All-Star Cheer is gearing up for the team’s sixth annual Cheer Showcase. The event raises money for the organization’s athletes and can be used to help pay for scholarships, new equipment and apparel the athletes need to compete.

“Our girls have had an excellent year,” program director Summer McParland said. “We’ve had lots of first- and second-place finishes, and the showcase is a great way to celebrate one of our best years yet.”

The showcase, which will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Steamboat Springs Middle School, will feature the cheerleading and dance club’s teams and top athletes. The teams will perform their award-winning routines, and there will also be stunt, tumbling and dance routines as part of the show. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. A family of four can purchase tickets for a reduced rate of $20.

“We would love to invite the community that has given us so much support the past six years,” McParland said. “This is a chance to come out and see what All-Star Cheer is all about, and it’s also been a successful fundraiser for us in the past.

McParland said the middle school cheerleading team will be the show’s special guest this year and should be a highlight of the event. There will also be a silent auction with items donated by local businesses.

“Last year, we did the same thing, and we able to raise money that helped support out athletes and purchase the equipment they needed to prepare for competitions and compete.”
