This month's Rock Star of the month is Drew Sweitzer! Drew has been apart of the Rock Star family for over 4 years. His cheerleading days started on JR 3 Gems. Before cheering, he spent a year tumbling at our gym, where he came to find that tumbling was his forte!
Being a Rock Star has impacted Drew's life in many ways. He's "met great people, grown as a person and became a more disciplined athlete" (Drew). He loves tumbling and working with his coaches, who have in the past few years, helped him excel and learn new skills. What motivates Drew to be the best athlete he can be is his teammates, who he finds to be some of his greatest friends! When he first joined the team, Drew immediately was drawn to the family environment. He knew that the close bond that he had with the Rock Starz would last a lifetime!
Drew's biggest accomplishment as a cheerleader is placing 1st at US Finals last season while on Rock Starz level 4 team, Platinum. This season, Drew is looking forward to being on Rock Starz level 5 team, Diamonds. "Level 5 is a lot different than the other levels. The skills are by far more challenging and the competitions are much more intense" (Drew). Being on a level 5 team is also exciting for him, because he knows that after a year of hard work he has the opportunity to go to Worlds with his teammates!
Keep up the good work, Drew!
