Is it time to get rid of "Elite?"


So why do we keep the “elite” name? We’re not an all-star team, and that word is associated very much with all-stars and very much NOT with rec teams. The true answer? Laziness. Changing it would take a lot of time, effort, and money. That, and “Eastside Dream Cheer” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. I took a poll of the girls a couple weeks ago and they like the name just the way it is, so for the moment, we’re keeping it. An homage to our history, I suppose. :-)

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.
