New Season, New Divisions: USA Wildcats

The USA Wildcats from Naugatuck, Connecticut are back at Reach The Beach Nationals 2019 and brought five teams to compete for titles this weekend! The program has been attending the competition since 2008 and has won numerous titles and grand championships.

Cheryl Thomes says their strengths this season are their cleanliness and creativity. “We do in house stunts,” says Thomes. “Coach Kyle choreographs all of our stunts and pyramids so that’s really special to us.”

Choreography is really important to the USA Wildcats and this season they really like the flow of their routines! “Wes Haley does a great job for us making sure he considers the teams strengths and weaknesses when doing our choreography,” said Thomes. “Routines that flow well is super important to us.”
