Tracy cheer gym Athletic Perfection kicked off its 2011-12 season with a pre-season rally at the MacArthur Drive gym on Thursday.
Gym owner Julie Van Os said that the annual rally is a chance to show parents the type of routines that the girls have learned and will bring to at least a half-dozen competitive events. Every year the gym brings back national championship banners, and Van Os expects that 100 competitors, including girls ages 5 to 18, will live up to those accomplishments.
“All of our teams won a national title at some point: class champion, best choreography, best stunt team, best tumbling,” she said. “All of our teams are better than they were last year, which is exciting.”
