The World Series of Cheerleading came to Broken Arrow on Saturday. News On 6’s Latoya Silmon reports that as many Oklahomans gets ready to cheer on the Sooners, some have other reasons to cheer. Broken Arrow High hosts the cheerleading competition every year. It's a regional competition, preparing squads for nationals in February.

And, there's cash on the line.

Teams are scored at each competition, then at the end of the season $15,000 dollars is awarded. Broken Arrow's team took home some of last year's pot. And, teams are excited again this year. But, the kids aren't the only ones.

"Cheerleading is a big family event,” said Promotion Director Danny Boze. “If you'll notice all the parents out there with all the signs and horns and bell and whistles, you'll see dads dressed up in crazy costumes. It's just a big family fun event and that's what Cheer Power tries to promote.”

Besides a great family event, Cheer Power says it provides a big boost to the local economy.
