Erie Winter Beach Blast event to host PA cheer teams this weekend

Friday Jan 22nd, 2021

Erie, Pa: Champion Cheer Central will host its 8th annual Erie Winter Beach Blast Cheer and Dance Championships at the Bayfront Convention Center on Sunday, Jan. 24. The event has been converted to a hybrid model and enacted extensive safety protocols in order to comply with Pennsylvania Department of Health mandates.

Using its hybrid model, the event will allow Pennsylvania-based teams to compete in person, while out of state teams will compete virtually from their home gyms.

All attendees will be required to go through a temperature check at the door and wear a mask while in the building. The event structure has been redesigned to ensure adequate distancing between groups.

“We’re fortunate to have partners like Heather Petz and Kim Soder leading Champion Cheer Central, who have been extremely diligent in their efforts to host a safe yet competitive event while following the guidelines enacted in our state. Their dedication to safety is clear,” said Mark Jeanneret, executive director of the Erie Sports Commission.
