Cheer team wins in Vegas, tryouts Saturday

    It’s a busy time for Spirit n’ Motion Athletic School competitive travel teams and for youngsters wishing to take part in the Hailey school’s programs for the coming school year.
    First of all, owner and head coach Amanda Norton said the school located at 3950 Woodside Blvd. in Hailey across from Power Engineers accepts children ages 3-18, and that includes all levels and abilities.
    Tryouts and workshops are free of charge for ages 6-and-up so parents and children can test the waters and see what the school offers in competitive cheerleading and gymnastics. Tryouts are set for Saturday, May 4 at 1 p.m. at the gym.
    Norton said, “Everyone who tries out makes a team. If you can’t make the tryouts, that’s okay. Just call us at 720-4306 or 968-4483 to schedule a tryout date. Also, check the Web site at”
    She added, “Kids under the age of six don’t need to attend tryouts or workshops. Just let me know if you are interested and you will automatically join our Tiny team. I will email you all the information you need.”

Cheerleaders win in Vegas
    Norton said she was proud of her competitive cheerleading teams that took part in the Sharp National Championships April 21 at Las Vegas, Nev.
    “Our teams did amazing and had a blast,” she said. “Plus, we had the best fan section ever. Thanks to all the cheer parents for being so awesome and supportive of our program.”
    The Spirit n’ Motion Black Diamonds (ages 10-18) took first place in their division.
    Norton said, “Our team fought hard and did the best execution of its two-and-a-half minute routine consisting of stunts, tumbling, dance, jumps, awesome choreography in dance and lots of spirit!”
    The Silver Stars (ages 6-10) placed fourth in their group and received the Sportsmanship Award. Eight-year-old Quinton Norton captured first place in a tumbling competition with his standing back tuck and a running round-off back tuck with a running round-off Arabian.
