12/16/2012 - Dress Rehearsal
Its almost that time of year! As our Staten Island Elite cheerleaders put on their uniforms, the reality that competition season will be starting soon sunk in. The Ruby-Emeralds, Amethyst, and Diamond teams arrived at our gym to find festive balloons everywhere to add spirit to the night. With a clapper board and movie reel balloon for their musical theme, our Ruby-Emeralds were so excited to wear their uniforms for the first time and could not stop talking about how much they loved the balloons. Our Diamonds had a gold balloon for every member of the team, a giant 17 for our seventeenth year of SIE, and three red balloons for our three High School Senior girls Cassidy, Alexa, and Keila. The most favored balloon that stole everyone's hearts, however, belong to the superhero-themed Amethyst team. As our Gems walked in, they found a life-sized Batman sitting on our trampoline. Once Coach Liz opened the practice with a program-wide prayer circle, our Gems made sure they performed their best in their beautiful uniforms for the other teams and more importantly Batman!

09/08/2012 - "Bring It On: The Musical" Brought It!
Staten Island Elite had a memorable bonding experience with over 80 of its cheerleaders, family, and friends when the Gems traveled to New York City's St. James Theater to see Bring It On: The Musical! Blown away by the skills performed on stage, our younger cheerleaders would not stop talking about it for days- while our older girls kept talking about how they could do that too. Looks like we may have some possible cheerleaders for a future Bring It On: The Musical!
09/05/2012 - Sr Diamond Theme Practices
Our Sr Diamond team has shown their SIE spirit dressing up for their 'Theme Nights.' With themes such as Thanksgiving, Disney, Mix & Match, and more, Diamond team members enjoyed having fun during practice and took the themes to the extreme!
Here are our Seniors Keila, Cassidy, and Alexa on Disney Theme Night. They make beautiful princesses!
08/01/2012 - Ruby-Emeralds decorate the gym!
Staten Island Elite Cheerleaders thank our Ruby-Emerald team for their amazing posters we displayed around the gym. Even when cheer camp got tiring, the posters around the gym kept the positive energy flowing and cheered on our Gems to not give up. Thanks for your sweet encouragement and beautiful posters, Ruby-Emeralds!
