The Maryland Twisters is well into our summer level training; however we are still accepting new athletes of all ages and levels! Our teams will be announced June 29th so do not miss your chance to be a member of the most decorated program in the Mid-Atlantic region. So far, our level 4 and 5 programs are the biggest they have ever been! If you are debating on joining please note that the last 4 years, Twisters has consistently sent at least 3 worlds teams on paid bids. We are the only program in our area to bring home multiple globes within a single season from the cheerleading worlds as well as the only program in the area to globe at all! Last year, we sent more worlds teams on paid bids than all of the gyms in our region combined! Our very own Supercells won the Summit in Orlando, FL and earned themselves championship rings! Both Hail & Fierce Winds beat out over 40 teams each to win the US Finals! Our lower levels are some of the most competitive teams in the country and we pride ourselves on being a well-rounded program. The time to join is NOW! Becoming a Twister is an experience of a lifetime that we want to share with you! The decision is always up to you, but the BEST wear black and blue!

icon05/12/2014 - Honoring the Life of Jay Fuller

Jay Fuller, beloved coach and friend, tragically passed away on 5/11/14. Jay was an amazing person and an even better coach. His positive energy was infectious and he always could make anyone smile. Jay returned to us this season after a 4 year hiatus and it was as if he never left. Jay's passion was mentoring children and he had such a positive effect on the lives of many young people and adults alike. Although he is no longer with us, his spirit will forever live on in the Twister program. The support and love we have received from athletes, coaches, and programs from across the country has been nothing short of amazing. We want to thank everyone for their words of endearment and sincerity during this difficult time. Please help us pray for Jay's athletes and family. We will miss you but we know you will be cheering us on from up above. 

icon05/07/2014 - Hail & Fierce Winds win Champions Challenge

Twisters attended the 2014 US Finals in Virginia Beach and brought back 3 titles home to Maryland! Mist, Fierce Winds, and Hail all won US Finals and then qualified to win the Champions Challenge. All 3 teams were video judged, compared, and competed against the other US Fianls winners from across the country. Fierce Winds & Hail beat over 40 teams each and are your 2014 Division Grand Champions for the US Finals! Both teams not only earned jackets, but will also receive champion rings and sweat pants! What a way to end the year! GO Twisters!

icon05/05/2014 - US Finals & Summit Champions

The Maryland Twisters wrapped up their season with a bang! For the first time ever we attended US Finals in Virginia Beach and we also sent Supercells to the newly, coveted Summit competition in Orlando. The competition was steep and we are proud to say that all of our teams that competed at the US Finals earned a paid bid to the event! Hail was the second team of the entire day and walked away with the 1st place banner and trophy! Fierce Winds competed against 9 teams and finished their season as US Finals Champions! Mist ended their season on a high note with tears of joy, a phenomenal performance, and 1st place champions! Hail, Fierce Winds, and Mist are now all eligible to be judged in the Overall Champion Challenge! All 3 teams will now be video judged and compete against the other 1st place teams across the country for a chance to be the Overall Champions!

Supercells traveled down to Orlando, Florida to compete at The Summit! They traveled down by themselves and represented the Twister program proudly! Supercells had to qualify to make finals and after a great day 1 performance, they advanced into finals in first place. Cells then had the best performance of the season and walked away as Summit Champions! The team earned a banner and got sized for their very own champion rings!

We could not be more proud of all of our teams this weekend and we are very sad to see the season is officially over. It has been an amazing year for all of our teams and although this past season was one for the books, we know that the upcoming season will be even better! GO Twisters!

icon04/30/2014 - Twisters Bring Back 2 Globes

What a way to end the season for our level 5 Worlds program! Maryland Twisters took 5 teams down to the 2014 Cheerleading Worlds and it was definitely an unforgettable experience! Eclipse competed in the deepest division with over 90 teams and got the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the world. Lady T's competed twice, made it to the Semi-Finals and had the best performance of their season! Weather Girls had us all on our feet with the show they put on at the Josten's arena and ended up 13th out of nearly 80 teams! F5 came out day 1 and received the highest all girl score out of all of the divisions! F5 will be bringing back an impressive 7th globe and earned the Bronze medal in the Medium Senior division. Reign brought the entire Milkhouse to their feet after their first day performance and will be bringing back their very first globe ever! We are very proud to say Reign also won the Bronze Medal in the Medium Coed division. This was definitely one of the strongest showings for the Twister program at the Cheerleading Worlds! We are the only program in the Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, West Virginia, Washington DC, and Virginia area that brought home not just 1, but 2 globes! The entire staff wants to congratulate all of the teams on a fantastic weekend! Next stop...US Finals and the Summit!
