Wanted: Collegiate pep flag coordinator
Let's face it, a majority of us have already graduated from high school and the pep flag competition it contains.
Let's change that.
We're looking for ANY individuals with pep flag experience to participate in an All Star / Collegiate Pep flag team based at California State University Long Beach...
We finally have someone volunteering to coordinate our team: Loren Pendilla. You may remember him as being the coach for Bishop Montgomery Short Flags until 2005. If all goes well, we should have everything ready by this Summer for preparation of the next season.
A few have already made their mark in bringing pep flags to the collegiate level such as at University of California San Diego or at Duke University on the East coast.
California State Long Beach houses a number of pep flag alumni who have graduated from the top high schools including Bishop Montgomery, Carson, Channel Islands, Long Beach Poly, Narbonne among others. It gives the opportunity for the team to already have some knowledge in both twirling and performing.
All we need, is someone to coordinate these talented group of individuals into forming a single team. This includes discussing it with the CSULB spirit / club administration, recruitment, practice time, leadership capabilities, choreographer, etc.
If you're interested in coordinating this effort, or even just joining the team itself (it will be open to anyone 18+ not just CSULB students), please comment!
We want to expand our community!
