This exciting weekend consist of three different events... the open Tournament, Clinic and the world- famous Invitational. 

The Tournament

The Tournament, in which anyone can compete, has been a fixture on the twirling scene over 40 years.  Twirlers of all levels and ability have flocked to this competition to compete.   The Elite Twirl Off Finals are always amazing to watch and have often been called a mini-nationals.  We are excited to have recently added team and an all-round event! 


The Invitational is one of the most prestigious competition in North America and only the elite of the elite are asked to compete in this event. Most of the athletes competing in this competition are current and former national champions.  All of our Invitational Champions, as well as most of our finalists, have gone on to win National and World titles. Countless twirlers have stated that winning Congressional Cup would be a dream come true!  See Michelle Widener talk about Congressional Cup below...
