Jordan Gremba, cheerleading
December 15, 2020
Junior Jordan Gremba is looking for the positives in the shutdown, calling it an extension of her cheer season, since the majority of the team’s competitions have been moved to March and April.
“Our season normally ends in February, so this is a nice extension to our season. This shutdown will definitely affect our team, but the longer season should cheer us all up,” Gremba said.
Although the shutdown poses issues for the team’s routines, Gremba said the team is resourceful and has a plan in place so they can stay in shape.
“During the first shutdown, we did team workouts through Zoom, and we are hoping to bring that back,” she said.
Although Gremba feels the shutdown was necessary, she said any extension of the shutdown could cause the team to lose some of the essential skills that they have been practicing.
“Stunting is something that we cannot practice alone. We need to get back into the gym to be together,” she said.
Along with practicing through Zoom, the girls are constantly in touch with each other, which Gremba said helps keep spirits high. Through FaceTime and Snapchat, the team checks up on each other and gives reminders about the importance of continuing to practice at home.
“Our team is very close and always motivates each other, so we should not have any problems keeping up the momentum. We always keep each other going and help one another with both cheer and personal problems,” Gremba said.
