2019 International Junior Level 1 - Intensity


The US Finals Champions Challenge Division Grand Champions

Intensity Hits The Mat In Orlando, Florida

Our IJ1 team, Intensity, kicked off their  international  tour as  they made the journey to Disney World in Orlando Florida to represent BC Interior's first ever team to compete at the UCA International All Star Championships.

Intensity faced  off against 7 other teams in their division from  Eastern Canada, United States of America, Columbia and Trinidad.  

Those moments you will never forget! 2nd Place finish in their division at UCA, Hit Zero,  a 96.98 score on Day 2, 94.22 overall finish and a Gold Bid from UCA to the US Finals for Las Vegas.  Dreams do come true.

Intensity Goes Double Or Nothing In Las Vegas, Nevada

 Intensity took on the challenge of a double header; competing in both  The US Finals  competition as well as the Jamz Nfinity Champions League West -  End Of Season Championships.  This marks the BC Interior's first ever team to compete in The US Finals!

This incredible team came home from Las Vegas the National Champions in their division from The US Finals  Competition  following  a  zero  deduction  run.

They  also  wrapped  up  the  weekend  as  1st Place   Champions at the Jamz Nfinity Champions League End Of Season Championships  following  zero  deduction  runs  on  both  days

A World Title Is Won

The Intensity team’s US Finals championship run earned them a spot in the Champions Challenge.  All the Championship videos from each division across 8 championship locations across the US were re-judged by the International Cheer Union and a single winner per division was awarded the Division Grand Champion.

On April 22, 2019, this 24-girl team watched live from the OK Firestorm gym as The US Finals Champions Challenge 2019 Division Grand Champions for International Junior Level title was awarded to their  team!  

This title is the first for a team from Canada.  To say the Okanagan Firestorm Family is proud is an understatement!  Placing in the top 3 at UCA or The US Finals is hard enough, let alone winning the Champions Challenge.  Our goal is to hit zero which means a clean routine with zero deductions.


To Our Community

Okanagan Firestorm's 2019 Intensity would like to extend a Huge thank you to the community (Kelowna, Lake Country, West Kelowna, Peachland, and greater area)  for supporting the fundraising efforts.  Without the community's support during car washes, bottle drives, BBQ stands, and other activities, these trips would not have been possible without your support.  Thank You!
