Young athletes looking for a place to practice

The Traverse City All-Stars Elite Cheerleading Team is looking for a new place to practice.

A group of young athletes is cheering to a national competition, but first they need a new place to practice!

Traverse City All-Stars Elite Cheerleading team has regional, state and national trophies, but this year the group is missing out on some practice time. The cheerleading team was using a church gymnasium which is no longer available to them. The group is using temporary locations from Kingsley to different areas across Traverse City, but is hoping to find a permanent place to get ready for a regional competition Dec. 1.

The team needs to rent a room with at least a 19-foot ceiling. The group practices Tuesday and Thursday evenings. If you can help, please call the team coach, Tammy Leishman at 231-499-7370. You can also email
