ALL- STAR CHEERLEADING

Coach: Cyndi

If you are ready to take your cheerleading skills beyond that of our rec classes then it may be time to consider joining one of our All- Star competitive teams with our USASF certified coach! Come and join us for our free tryout and placement event where we will place you into either one of our rec cheerleading classes or one of our competition All- Star squads.

Those who participate at the All- Star level will get to experience cheer at a new level. No cheerleading experience is necessary, however, athletes will need basic tumbling skills and a willingness to learn. All- Star squads run from September- May. We will be attending 1-3 competitions this season as well as various other performances throughout the year. All practices and performances are mandatory. There are minor additional fees for this class to cover uniforms and competition fees.

In previous years, all of our participants grew in their own abilities, confidence, and developed strong leadership qualities. Age and level divisions are dependent upon tryouts.
