    The gym is truly called Epidemic Stunt & Tumble (or EST).
    I have never been a “typical” cheerleading coach, and I wanted a gym name that reflected the edgier, different style that I represent.
    If we looked at and eliminated all the names of teams that represent a “thing” with violent tendencies or tragic outcomes because they seemed “wrong”, we would have a much smaller pool of team names to choose from—F5 tornadoes (and twisters in general) are destructive beings that cause havoc and disaster where ever they touch down. Tsunamis kill multitudes of people. Great White Sharks, Cheetahs, and many other animals are predators, and kill to eat. Snipers are trained to kill their target. There is a team with the name Addiction. We don’t look at those team names and think “that’s wrong.”
    Epidemic doesn’t always refer to illnesses, and can be defined as a “rapid spread, growth, and development,” which is exactly what I hope for my program to do.

    Thank you for helping us understand your reason for the name - My degree was in Health Education, so clearly epidemic to ME means something on a whole other level - "an outbreak of disease that spreads quickly and affects many individuals at the same time". Good luck with your new program. You must be so excited.

    Understandable that that was your first instinct. Hopefully you will "catch the Epidemic" soon ;)

    I think "Evacuate the Dance Floor" might be a good song mix...with all being "infected by the sound".

    I love it, but I'm curious what team names you could have. Virus, staph, and my personal favorite ---> FEVER!

    Fever is one that we're considering. We just put together a half year team that will be competing at a local competition in a few weeks that picked the name Contagion. With being so new, we don't really know how many teams we will have to come up with names for. We've been brainstorming ideas, but nothing is set in stone yet :)

    One of our girls came in with a list of names she came up with--I think Virus was also on there, but we'll see what we end up with!

    Is anthrax on the list? That just sounds like a name for a "sick" lv5. Could even use some Anthrax in running tumbling ;)

    I'm here for ya ;)

    Your biggest concern may be "are EPs literate?" I don't know how many times our gym name has been mispronounced. It's REALLY not that hard people, but apparently "Aviator" is regularly pronounced "Avatar"....like we all wear blue and are ten foot tall CGI people.

    If I had a dime every time they called us that....well, I'd have a lot more dimes!

    Not that anyone is going to know this gym but a former BAAM Athletics coach is opening his own program to be named One Elite All Stars in Trinity, FL! Super excited to see what he comes up with and how this turns out for him.
