PAC-tastic performance

The single largest one-day event at Heritage Park was hosted by Chilliwack’s Pacific All-star Cheerleading Club Jan. 15.

This year’s Pacific All-star Cheerleading 2011 Cheer Championship was a great success, drawing 100 teams and 1,300 athletes from the Fraser Valley and Washington State.

Many volunteers donated countless hours to make it happen, and support was excellent from the 2,000 spectators who came through the doors.

The success was magnified by PAC’s performance, with the senior division Phenoms finishing second and the youth division Phoenix third.

The mini-Pixies had their best finish to date and all three teams will be looking to continue building on their success at Cheerfest in Abbotsford on Feb 5.

The competition schedule continues Feb. 12 with the Western Invitational in Ferndale, WA.

Peter Parrotta is the head coach and owner of Pacific Allstar Cheerleading.

Parrotta is one of the highest qualified and experienced coaches in the sport.

In addition to operating and coaching Pacific Allstar Cheerleading, he is also an associate choreographer for CW TV’s newest hit Hellcats, which was recently nominated for a People’s Choice Award.
