For a cheerleading or dance team, the difficult road to the National Championship is quite similar to that of the football teams. A spirit team has to showcase their best 2:30 routine at the League Championship. The top two teams in each division advance to the Region Championships and then on to the Nationals.

The Temecula Bears Football team is also having an epic year. They just went undefeated and won the “Best of the West” tournament. They are now in route to Cancun to play in the Championships.

This will be Coach Troy Juve’s final year after dedicating 25 years to Pop Warner Football. Thanks Coach.
