Since their first tour with AFE to the Balkans in 1999, the Redskins Cheerleaders have been a hit all over the world and have the reputation as being the best entertainers in pro sports.

“I can’t believe that with in 6 months of making the squad that I have been able to travel all over the world”, says Stephanie the 18-year old Rookie from Maryland. Stephanie spent several weeks in India and then traveled with the squad to Aruba, this after just finishing her senior year in High School and never traveling outside of the US prior to making the squad.

Traveling with this group will be seasoned veteran and current calendar cover model, Tiffany. She hasn’t been on tour in three years and is looking forward to hitting the world stage again.
