As this year's event also falls on St. Patrick's Day, our Southwest Regional Tee shirts will be heather gray with our unique Logo in green.  You can order your Tee with your Southwest entry.

Highlighted Event: Southwest Regionals has many very special traditions. There are two traveling trophies at this event that are in memory of two important people to the twirling community.  The College Miss Majorette of the Southwest is awarded the Tony Pierce Memorial Award. This award was started in 2008 by Janice Jackson Seamands and supported by the Pierce/Johnson/Ashcraft/Mayben Families. The Teenage Miss Majorette of the Southwest is awarded the Shane Downey Memorial Trophy.  This award was started in 2012 by the Mickey and Payne Families.  Both are very prestigious awards and a special part of the Southwest Regional Championships.

This year we also have a very special guest. Adaline Bebo, the reigning College Miss Majorette of America, will have a presentation and will assist in the awards ceremony.

FYI's from the Director: Southwest regionals corresponds with many spring break school holidays.  With that in mind don’t forget the whole family.  The DFW area is FULL of fun entertainment and sport venues.  Come early and enjoy your family or stay after and celebrate in all the fun attractions.
