There’s truth in the old adage strength lies in numbers. Funtastics Force and EVO Athletics, the two leading all star cheerleading programs in the area, have come to terms on a union with this adage in mind. Combining these two programs will bring Bradenton/Sarasota area a true powerhouse competitive cheer program. The two programs have already begun practicing together and the 32,000 sq foot EVO gym has been electric.
“The vibe was amazing!” EVO cheerleading coach Rachel Mayle said. “All of the teams were cheering each other on and the energy was contagious. It was exactly what both teams needed to recharge their batteries before the end of a long season.”
In a note to Funtastics families from Edwards, “EVO has been so generous to us and is truly an elite place for our athletes and families to call home including more equipment, air conditioning, a convenient cafe, business center and showers.”
In an note from EVO Athletics Cheer Director Jimmy Lassiter to his staff, families and athletes: “I would like to announce that on April 10th, 2017 Funtastics will officially be joining the EVO family on a permanent basis. This incredible merger has both sets of staff very excited for the opportunities that this will bring for all of our athletes.This is a great chance for everyone involved to merge skills, grow as teams, meet new friends in the industry and thrive as a group of competitive athletes.”
EVO Athletics could not be more excited about the union as it will truly be an amazing program for athletes from all over Southwest Florida to train in an elite cheerleading program. Tryouts for their 2017-2018 program will occur in mid May, 2017. Information packets for the season will be available by April 1st.
