WE INTRODUCE YOU TO THEFRESNO STATE — THEY HOST A HUGE FUNDRAISER IN COMPETE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. JOINING US TODAY TO TALK ABOUT THEIR SEASON AND UPCOMING EVENT IS ANNALIS RODRIGUEZ CAPTAIN AND PRESIDENT ALSO JOINING HER IS SERENA ANDERSON THIRD YEAR DANCE MEMBER AND MAKING, THEY ARE BOTH THIRD-YEAR CHEER MEMBERS. ROCK ON. WERE EXCITED TO HAVE YOU HERE. THE SEASON JUST KICKED OFF. HOUSES STARTING? IT’S GOING WELL. WE ARE PRACTICING THREE TIMES A WEEK BOTH CHEER AND DANCE. WE ARE GOING TO START WORKOUTS IN TWO WEEKS. WERE STILL DOING LITTLE WORKOUTS HERE AND THERE. THEY’RE DOING GREAT AS WELL AS OUR PRACTICES ARE GOING. HOW TO THE PRACTICES WORK IN THE WORKOUTS? WHAT YOU DO TO GET PREPARED? FOR CHEER THEY PRACTICE MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY. WE HAVE MORNING WORKOUTS AT SIX IN THE MORNING ONE DAY A WEEK ON THEN FOR DANCE WE PRACTICE ON WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. WOW. BUSY. YOU WILL BE EVEN BUSIER IN THE COMING MONTHS BECAUSE YOU HAVE SPIRIT FAST. TELL US WHAT GOES ON FOR THAT. SO, FOR SPIRIT FAST, THAT IS ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9. IT IS OUR BIGGEST FUNDRAISER AND IT IS FOR 4 – 15 -YEAR-OLDS TO COME CHEER WITH US ON THE FIELD AT HALFTIME. THE KIDS GET TO GET A T-SHIRT AND PERFORM AT HALFTIME WITH US FOR $40. THEN THERE IS AN ONLINE REGISTRATION. THAT’S SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR. I THINK IT WILL WIDEN THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE THAT CAN GET THERE. LOOK OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOR THAT. FOR SURE. THAT’S INCREDIBLE. WHAT’S THE BEST PART OF HAVING THE KIDS GET TO GO ON AND PERFORM WITH YOU? PART OF IT IS KNOWING YOUR ROLE MODEL AND KNOWING THAT THEY LOOK UP TO US AND WE LOVE HAVING THEM. IT’S COOL THINKING THAT THESE COULD BE FUTURE SPIRIT MEMBERS LATER ON IN THE UPCOMING YEARS. THEY LOOK UP TO US AND THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO WHEN I’M IN COLLEGE. I LOVE THAT. WELL YOU GUYS ALSO DO COMPETITIONS. YOU GO ALL OF THE WAY TO FLORIDA AT SOME POINT. TELL US ABOUT HOW THAT GOES. WERE STARTING OUR COMPETITION SEASON OF EARLY. WE WILL START USING OUR ROUTINES HOPEFULLY THIS MONTH OR NEXT MONTH AND THEN WE WILL GO START COMPETING IN FEBRUARY. USUALLY WE COMPETE IN ANAHEIM. SOME GO TO DAYTONA. WE HOPE TO GET BACK TO DAYTONA SOON. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. WITH CHEER ADX, HOW DO THE TWO DIFFER — WITH CHEER WE FOCUS ON TUMBLING AND THEN DANCE IF YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN THAT REMAINING DANCING IS MORE LIKE ROUTINES. WE GET TO PERFORM A THIRD-QUARTER BRAKES AND JUST THAT’S WHAT OUR MAIN PRACTICES ARE, LEARNING OUR DANCES AND DOING THAT MAIN ROUTINE. AND THEN WILL DO THE SAME SIDELINES AS CHEER THAT MAINLY DANCE TYPE WITH IT. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT ALL THIS, IS IT THE SEASON OR COMPETITION OR WHAT GOES ON? AGAIN TODAY, I CAN ASK LEANED HIS FEELING OF BEING IN THE STADIUM AND SEE THE WHOLE STADIUM FIELD WITH THE RED WAY. IT’S SO FUN. BEING ABLE TO SHOW OFF ALL OF THE STUNTS AND PRACTICING ALL YEAR ROUND HINGES SHOW EVERYBODY WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON. HEARING EVERYBODY AND IF YOUR FRESNO CHAIN STATE CHAMP OUR FIRST TIME DOING IT WE ARE ALSO NERVOUS BUT THE CROWD WAS AMAZING. CHILLS. I DEFINITELY AGREE. I WAS AT ONE OF THE FOOTBALL GAMES WE FIRST DID IT IT WAS INSANE. THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AROUND YOU AND YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT A GROUP OF US TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT IT WAS REALLY FUN. I LOVE GOING ON THE FIELD AND DANCING MY HEART OUT AND THEN FOR COMPETITIONS I LOVE GOING BACK TO MY DANCE ROUTES INTO DOING CONTEMPORARY STYLE. FOR THE COMPETITIONS WHAT KIND OF THINGS YOU DO? OTHER SECTIONS OR HOW DOES IT WORK? FOR DANCE IN A CHOREOGRAPHER USUALLY FROM THE L.A. AREA AND THEY WILL CHOREOGRAPH OR TWO DAYS FOR US AND THEN WE COMPETE IN FEBRUARY AND WE COMPETE ON ONE DAY TO QUALIFY AND THEN THE SECOND DAY IS THE FINALS. FOR CHEER WE HAVE A CHOREOGRAPHER. WE HAVE A CROWD SEGMENT AND WE TRY TO GET THE CROWD INVOLVED AND THEN AFTER WE GET SET UP AND SHOWCASING STUNTS, DANCING, TUMBLING, THE WHOLE YARD. HOW ABOUT THE REST OF THE YEAR? IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE WITH SPIRIT FAST. DURING THE YEAR WE DO CHEER AT FOOTBALL, VOLLEYBALL GAMES AND MEN’S AND WOMEN’S BASKETBALL AND WRESTLING. YOU CAN CATCH US THERE AND AT SCHOOL THEY ASK US TO DO A LOT OF APPEARANCES. SOME PEOPLE WENT THIS MORNING TO SCHOOL EARLY AND WIN IN THEIR UNIFORMS AND WENT TO AN APPEARANCE FOR THE STUDENTS THERE. THANK YOU SO MUCH LADIES WERE COMING. AND SPENDING YOUR AFTERNOON WITH US. GOOD LUCK WITH THE SEASONING COMPETITION. I’M SURE YOU WILL ROCKET.
