LIVERMORE FALLS – Revolution Rec Cheer is holding a series of fundraisers to help support their travel team Code Black make it to The Quest Recreational Championships at the ESPN Sports Complex at Disney World in Florida, which will feature the top recreational teams from across the country.

Formerly known as Mt. Blue Rec Cheering, Revolution Rec Cheer has four teams that compete in the state of Maine: Chaos, Revolt, Rebellion, and Scandal. Their travel team, Code Black, is a level 3.1 Performance Rec team with kids ranging from 10-17 years old. All of the teams are currently operating out of Area Youth Sports in Livermore Falls, with practices being held five days a week.

Code Black recently competed against ten teams in The Aloha Showdown in Worcester, Massachusetts on Jan. 14 where they received the high score of the day with an overall score of 94.10. The team also won the Judges Award, a Golden Ticket Bid to the U.S. Finals, and a Silver Bid to The Quest Recreational Championships granting the team and their two coaches Nicole Osborne and Landon Wilber 50% payment.

“There is nothing like seeing these kids win they way they did and being so excited to go to these competitions,” Director Barbara Walsh said. “This is something so exciting for our little area of the world, and even though it isn’t All-Stars, it gives these kids a piece of that excitement.”

Revolution Rec Cheer is currently fundraising to help raise $6,500 to pay for the second half of their fee for The Quest which is due on Feb. 15, and Code Black will be competing at The Quest on March 10 and 11.
