Special Olympics Cheerleading (ages 16+)

Jupiter’s, The Palm Poms, a Special Olympics Cheerleading Team representing North Palm Beach County has achieved high accomplishments in less than twelve months. Meeting each other for the first time in September of 2018, ten special athletes came together each week to practice at the Jupiter Community Center with Coaches Shari Stafford and Donna Minotti. With consistency and dedication, they went to their very first Area Games in March of this year to achieve first place and the opportunity to compete in Florida’s Special Olympics Summer State Games in May. Coach Shari and Donna will begin practices for next season on August 5th at 4:30 and welcome any athlete that may be interested.
