POWER - An interview with Ms. Regina Symons
Cheer Power has
around for over 35 years bringing amazing competitions to talented
athletes, dedicated coaches and supportive parents.
When the Cheer Power trucks roll
into town, you KNOW the event will be FUN!
Founder and President
Symons explains why Cheer Power Championships are an exciting
addition to any gym’s season schedule!
What makes Cheer Power so much fun for the Athletes?
"Cheer Power has always been a
trailblazer in the cheer industry, but we always strive to set
ourselves apart by making our events FUN for the whole family.
We have something for everyone!
Our main focus is Always on the
Athlete and rewarding their hard work while keeping them safe while
We are well known for our
generous awards with Jackets for National and Mini-National
Champions, and we brought levels to our part of the nation because
safety was so important to us."
Tell us a little bit about Cheer Power and it's history in
One of the
things we are famous for is that we
brought competition levels to Texas and were the first company to
offer the LET’S CHEER division where no tumbling was needed in order
to feel successful against other teams of the same ability! We
believe that feeling success at one level will bring that drive to
compete at another level. Cheer Power also believes no athlete
should be left out! We
SPONSOR ONE ATHLETE per team
(regionals only) to help out those gyms that
give so much to their athletes as well. We also give 3rd
family member discounts for families with multiple children
We will be giving SPECTATOR ENTRY FEE DISCOUNTS to our Grandparents
60 and older along with our Military (with active ID)!
We are proud to say that in 2008 we became a part of the
largest cheer company in the country today – VARSITY! Varsity
offers many opportunities for gyms with their Varsity Family Plan!
This is a
HUGE BENEFIT to anyone competing with a Varsity brand company!
And with no brand requirement,
you can attend any Varsity Brand Competition and still receive your

We love Show Teams, they are the
athletes of the future.
Kids can Trick-or-Treat our
vendors if they wear costumes to our Halloween Championships as our
Regional/Open competitions are all Themed for holidays, patriotic,
Christmas with Santa, 50’s and Wild West!
One thing unique to Cheer Power
is our Graduating Senior shirts.
Every graduating senior gets a
free Senior shirt at Nationals and they wear them proudly!
We hope they cheer in college or
come back as coaches!

Staff of the Year Awards with a cash prize to D1 and D2 staffs at
both our Nationals and for Dance and Individual Events.
Cheer Power also has the neatest
award called “My Coach Rocks” in which athletes nominate their coach
online, telling us why their coach is the best and “rocks!”
We read these at National
Championship award ceremonies and there are many tears and smiles of
joy and gratitude.
Each coach chosen receives a

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"I coach a special needs cheer team and
have been doing this for about 3 years. This is the very first
competition where all my parents were able to get in for free!!
They were in tears
of joy - some of them who had already paid for their
tickets got reimbursed. This has never happened at any
other competition before and we are beyond thankful. The
fact that each athlete got individual big trophies left
not only myself but my coaching counterpart as well, in
tears. Cheer Power puts on a top notch competition.
It is very refreshing to come to one where a group of
special needs kids feel welcomed and accepted. On behalf
of my teams, parents, and coaching counterparts, I want to say
THANK YOU. I could go on and on about our experience. We
even got coaches gifts as well as free admission!
Again thank you for caring for our special needs
community as much as we do!!!

"I just wanted to
thank you for an amazing cheerleading competition this weekend
in Ohio. It was our first time attending and our program greatly
enjoyed it. The staff was awesome. The competition was extremely
well run. And as a coach the most positive thing I saw was super
positive judges comments to go along with the critiques. And the
critiques were written positively and didn't undermine our
Again, thank you for
such a positive experience for our athletes. We would love to
make that 6 hour trip again next year
