Local Employer Helps Send North Chicago High School Cheer Team to Stunt Camp.

Byline: Jon Kozlowski

North Chicago u Last November, Tap Room Gaming and CEO Michael Bond helped send twelve members of the North Chicago High School Cheer Team to stunt camp, where they sharpened their skills in preparation for the upcoming competition season.

Each team prepares for several months in advance of a competition where judges evaluate routines based on difficulty, technique, and performance. Stunts are complex and require many hours of practice to be ready for competition. As a newcomer to the world of competitive cheer, the North Chicago team has been embraced by neighboring teams, and has quickly developed a reputation as a tough and fearless program.

"The future of our competitive program is very bright, and stunt camp has helped us take our routines to the next level," said head coach, Ebony Wilson. "We are incredibly grateful for the support that we have received from both the cheer community and local business leaders like Michael Bond and Tap Room Gaming."

Tap Room Gaming is known for its history of charitable giving and commitment to the local community. They are regular sponsors of community events and high school athletics. As an important small business partner, and employer to over 95 local people, they have a deep interest in building stronger communities across Lake County.

In addition to stunt camp, Tap Room Gaming is providing sweatshirts for the entire team. For more information about the cheer program, upcoming schedules, or supporting student athletics in North Chicago, contact North Chicago School District 187 at 847-689-8150 or visit
