RBA Cheer Excels at US Finals; Consider Joining! 

The RBA Athletics’ cheerleaders won several top prizes in the US Finals last weekend in Myrtle Beach. The US Finals is one of the largest competitions in the country, and RBA students came out strong with three National Titles and two Grand Champions for levels 1 and 2. Congratulations to all athletes and coaches on amazing performances!

RBA Athletics has been a reliable source of cheerleading excellence in the community for more than two decades and offers year-long competitive cheerleading to students at all four CCS-America campuses. Founded by Daryl and Jeane LaFave in 2004, the program started as a member of Coastal Pop Warner and quickly grew into a powerful force in recreational cheer. The program’s cornerstone values of discipline, teamwork, and integrity have been developed over time through the founders’ own experience in the sport. These values are instilled in every athlete who joins RBA Athletics, creating not just a team, but a family that works hard, supports each other, and extends beyond the gym.

The program’s impact on the community is evident in the many athletes who have returned to coach or bring their children to the program. While the program has earned many awards and accolades over the years, its greatest success is undoubtedly the lasting relationships it has helped nurture and build.

Join RBA Athletics today, and become part of a family that values excellence, hard work, and community.
