Super-Rec Competition Cheer is a tryout-based competition program that focuses on advanced skill development in line with “prep” and “all-star” competitive standards and the expectations of the Lake Zurich High School Cheer program. Team works with professional choreographers, cheer and tumbling coaches from USGTC to develop their routines. Team will compete at 3-4 competitions during the season with the goal of qualifying for the IRCA State Finals. Super-Rec Competition Cheer teams do not cheer at football games but may perform at half time during 1 or more games. Will also participate in the Alpine Fest Parade with the Lake Zurich Flames.

PARENT LEADERS WANTED!

We're so excited our Flames Cheer program has grown by leaps and bounds. We love seeing so many athletes in the program. But more cheerleaders means more coaches, assistant coaches, managers and coordinators! It takes a lot of work to put together an amazing season and we want more Parent Leaders to help create an incredible experience for our cheerleaders. If you're interested in coaching, don't worry, professional training will be provided! Please reach out and let us know what interests you. Contact Gretchen Donaldson at gretchendonaldson@lzflames.org.
