Pierce Athletics D2 Summit Climb

Pierce Athletics began in the fall of 2001. We offer tumbling and cheerleading instruction to athletes ages18 months to adult. Since that time we have added a competitive tumbling program (Fall 2002) and a competitive cheerleading program (Spring 2005). We strive not only to offer tumbling and cheer instruction to our athletes - but to instill life values like team work, dependability and dedication.

This year our Youth Level 1 competitive cheer team received a Wild-Card Bid to the 2018 D2 Summit. The D2 Summit is an innovative, prestigious, competitive and unforgettable end of the year all levels experience. It’s the Super Bowl of All-Star Cheerleading. The D2 Summit is eligible to all of the small lgyms throughout the U.S. that have a total of 125 athletes or less in their competitive program (we have13). The event was created to provide a unique opportunity for youth, junior & senior teams in non-worlds divisions to have an end of the year event like no other. Only 10% of teams from across the country will make the cut and take the climb. Pierce Athletics Youth Level 1 team is taking the climb, but they need your help to reach the D2 Summit. The Pierce Athletics Youth team has 8 athletes ages eight to eleven. These 8 athletes represent different communities – Byron, Freeport, Pearl City, Pecatonica, & Stillman Valley. These 8 athletes are dedicated, determined and worthy of going to The D2 Summit, but they need help financially.

Making it to the D2 Summit has been the goal of our organization since the early plans of this event debuted in 2010. The D2 Summit is located at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida from May 11-13, 2018. The cost of going to the D2 Summit per athlete includes the following: transportation to and from Midway airport of $60, roundtrip airfare from Chicago to Orlando of $228, and the D2 Summit event travel package costs of $644 (this package includes hotel accommodations, event registration, access to the Disney parks as well as ESPN's Wide World of Sports for event participation, and all transportation while in Orlando). That brings the total cost to $932 per person to attend the D2 Summit. This makes the grand total for the team of 8 athletes and 2 coaches to attend $9320.
