Cheer & Dance Championships
Each year, the Orange Bowl Cheer & Dance Championships see over 100 teams from more than 30 parks compete for Cheer and Dance bragging rights. Teams competed in nine divisions (mini, pee wee, junior prep, prep, junior varsity, varsity, semi-pro, pro and special needs) and three squad sizes (small, medium, large). The 2012 Orange Bowl Cheer & Dance Championships will be held on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at the BankUnited Center.
Now in its 14th season, the Orange Bowl YFA presented by Sports Authority serves more than 16,000 young football players and cheerleaders in nine football leagues across eight South Florida counties and has invested approximately $5 million in youth sports in South Florida since 1999. In addition to its continued support of the Orange Bowl YFA, the Orange Bowl directly supports locally-based festivals and events, including those that provide participatory opportunities to youth from all over the world, such as Junior Orange Bowl, Orange Bowl Sailing Regatta Series, Orange Bowl International Tennis Championships and Orange Bowl Paddle Championships.
