National Team

minions
The KTN or Kids to National team was started in 1997 with the premise that this team would be for twirlers that want to commit to twirling as their #1 activity, dedicate, improve, compete, and be competitive at a national level. Since that time the team has won 15 National Team Championships, had several individual titles, a world team member, top ten Miss College Majorette finalist, a summer team member win College Miss Majorette, collegiate top ten finalist, and many top ten placements. Their honors include the 2009 & 2011 Halftime Show Twirl team Grand National champions and two- time Beth Wilson Artistic Award winners.

 

IMG_7597The team focuses on team work, hard work, dedication, being a good person while twirling,  in the community, and striving to be the very best we can at all times. The philosophy from the coach is that our improvement coincides as we improve individually and as a team member.
