Hawaii All-Stars Kaprincesses 2017 Summit Champions!
Hawaii All-Stars cheerleading began in 2010. Kealii Molina is the owner and Head Coach of Hawaii All-Stars and has a staff comprising of Michelle Sniffen, and Halia Kekuewa who coach the youth and junior programs. The gym is based in Kahului and cheerleaders from all over the island and of all different ages cheer with us.
In 2017 the Kaprincesses competed at the Athletic Championships where they won Grand Champion in their division. This is also where they won their fully-paid bid to The Summit. They also competed at the USA All-Star Championships in Anaheim California where they defended their championship title for the 7th year in a row.
The Hawaii All-Stars Kaprincesses won The Summit Championships at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida in May 2017. The Summit is the largest and most prestigious cheerleading championship in the country. In order to compete at The Summit you must be invited by winning grand champion at a preliminary competition. Competitions happen all over the country and the Kaprincesses were lucky enough to win a fully-paid bid to The Summit Championships. The Kaprincesses have represented Hawaii at The Summit since 2013 when the elite level championship began. They placed 2nd twice before achieving their goal of winning the 2017 Summit Championship along with their 2017 Summit rings.
“We are so happy to have represented Maui and the State of Hawaii in such a positive light. We hope to continue to bring success and recognition to our island and state. Thank you to the community of Maui that supports us in so many different ways.”
