TUESDAY 7:00 - 8:30PM
Mercer Island Community Center

Congratulations to our Red Squad ladies and guys who won the State Championship again! You guys rock!


Although our focus is NOT to be a competitive program, we offer this for those cheerleaders who want the competition experience without the expense and time commitment of a full competitive program.  We feel this is a nice complement to our current team offerings, and a little "icing on the cake" for our top athletes.


Offered through the Mercer Island Parks Department, Competition Team (also known as Red Squad) meets on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:30pm from October through March.  We attend competitions in January-March as scheduled.


The Competition Team is selected from those enrolled on Power Squad.  No try-out is required. Please see our Power Squad page for more information about the requirements to join Power Squad.

The Eastside Dream Elite cheerleading program is associated with Bellevue Parks, Mercer Island Parks, Renton Parks, Kirkland Parks, Issaquah Parks, and the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. Try-outs are not required for any EDE teams, and all teams are non-competitive except for Red Squad.  We work hard to keep costs low for EDE participants.  Scholarships for class fees are available from the respective organizations for residents who qualify.  Uniform fees are not covered by those scholarships, however we make every effort to help those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate.
