The University of Montana Cheer Squad will host the annual Griz Glam Jam cheerleading competition on Sunday, January 21.

Everyone is welcome to attend this annual event, which brings in over 200 athletes and coaches. It's one of the largest cheer competitions in Montana, with teams from Billings, Helena, Missoula, Great Falls and Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, among other cities competing.

All-star competition starts at 9:00 a.m. which includes solo performances and stunt groups, and continues through the afternoon with team competition. The event is being held at the Adams Center on the UM campus. Tickets are only $7 for the general public. Senior citizens, military personnel with ID and kids age 6-17 are just $5 and children five and under get in free. Parking and re-entry are also free.

The event is sponsored by Destination Missoula and proceeds benefit the University of Montana Spirit Squad, which will also be performing, along with the UM Dance Team and Monte the Mascot. It should be a day of exciting talent with these young athletes.
