Freedom Unmasked – You Win Some…(episode 3)
February 19, 2018
0

Listen this week as every athlete on the Freedom team gives a recap of a tough loss they experienced, the lessons learned and how they plan on moving forward. They speak honest and from the heart, no excuses.

Background:
We have a cheer gym here in Front Royal that is doing some amazing things. Each week Jenspiration goes out to film the cheer squad, Freedom, in action during practice. The videos are authentic and show real situations the team experience. They do not always agree but work together to resolve disagreements. The athletes know, working “together” they can accomplish anything! Divided they are limited….

All Star Legacy Front Royal is a positive program for our children to experience tumbling and cheer at all ages and levels. Watch the real stories of Freedom Unmasked on the Royal Examiner!

“FREEDOM” isn’t FREE, it’s paid for by many. – a reminder from Coach Rogers

JacQui Ris – A special star at Family FunDay!
January 26, 2018

Meet JacQui Ris!  JacQui is a senior at Warren County High School, a cross country athlete and a fabulous artist with an inspiring story.  About two years ago, JacQui decided she wanted to find a job in order to make some money to help her parents financially at home. JacQui did not land a “typical” job, which turns out to be a blessing in disguise.  JacQui ended up getting creative…like really creative!

At Family FunDay, organized by C&C Frozen Treats, JacQui took a chance and debuted her spray paint art skills.  She was a huge hit!  Cityscapes, mountain scenes and space scenes are styles you might see when JacQui is creating at events.  She is well known at the flea market at this point, holds several local internships and is a Family FunDay star!

Be sure to check out the amazing work JacQui has on display currently at the Kiln Doctor.  Her work will also be on display at the Family FunDay Parade of 2018 on May 12th on the floats she painted for C&C Frozen Treats complete with a Louisiana style Mardi Graz panel!  Check JacQui out in action at the event.  Keep in mind, custom orders are welcome!

Please watch this video to hear Jacqui’s story straight from her and see her create a most awesome cityscape right before your eyes!
