The Nfinity Champions League Reveals Programs and Teams Committed to CL2

Los Angeles, Calif., August 1, 2014 – The Nfinity Champions League will see it’s second season this March 20-22 as it moves from Atlanta, Georgia to Los Angeles, California. Nfinity Athletic, The Official Shoe of Cheerleading™ and Aloha Productions, one of the leading event producers for cheerleading and dance events, present the headlining teams for The Nfinity Champions League Live Event for March 20-22, 2015 in Los Angeles, Calif. at L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles. Twenty-eight of the most elite teams in competitive cheerleading compete for the title of The Nfinity Champions League Grand Champion. Twenty-two League Teams will return to the big screen allowing six spots for the wild card Level 5 teams to “Play-In” to the League guaranteeing a spot in the movie release. Those six teams will challenge The League with the bottom four scores not automatically advancing to the following year.

Each team competing in The Nfinity Champions League selects a charity of their choice that is designated throughout the competitive season. Money is raised for those charities during their season with the GRAND CHAMPION of The Champions League taking home $10,000 for their charity and the remaining All Girl and Coed Champions receiving a $5,000 prize for their cause. Over $30,000 was raised and donated in the inaugural year of The Nfinity Champions League.

Observations After Worlds 2014

Event 21 of the season was Worlds. With all the highs and lows of the weekend there was one thing that stood out. My highlight of the weekend was born from unfortunate circumstances, an injury during Spirit of Texas’ IOC5 routine. Watching that group pull themselves back together in the back hallway, return to the warmup room and put a new girl in the routine, and walk back on the stage and put on an admirable performance was a testament to the type of people in that program and on that team. In addition seeing the support they got in the warmup room from the Large Coed teams waiting to warmup up and CheerForce, a competitor in their division, was a great example of the supportive community cheerleading is.

As far as anything else that happened this weekend, I haven’t yet heard or read too much about what I missed so it will probably be discussed on the next episode of OverStretch.
