ROCHESTER, Mich. -- The newly formed integrated cheer and dance team has created a new name, Grizzly Motion, announced by head coach Chelsea Estes on Wednesday. Grizzly Motion will perform at many of Oakland's home games, along with making appearances in the community and special events hosted by Oakland Athletics.
“Choosing a name was a fun process for the team,” said Estes. “Kayla and I split the members up into small groups to help embrace the integrated atmosphere and get to know one another and asked them to brainstorm possible names. After compiling all of their creative suggestions, the members voted to have Grizzly Motion as their official team name."
The official Grizzly Motion roster was released earlier in June and additional tryouts will be held at the beginning of the school year at times and dates to be announced.
