More information about our program will be coming soon! As we are in the hunt for a new head coach, lots of decisions regarding where the program can head are still undetermined. However, we are hoping to move forward into the 2015-2016 season with a competition routine to perform exhibition at high schools around the twin cities metro. The ultimate goal for this next year is to be able to perform at WOW Factor Sports Competition the first weekend in February in we would actually be in competition for the first time in recent school history. Again, none of these plans are yet concrete, however are general directions in which the team is hoping to head.
