WHAT IS ALL STAR CHEERLEADING?
All-Star Cheerleading is the fastest growing sport in the world! It is different from traditional “rah rah” stereotypes, because of the level of skill and athleticism that it entails. Often, children participating in “rah rah” type programs grow tired of the sport quickly due to lack of growth or not being challenged. This is why All Star Cheer has become the destination for so many of those athletes. All Star teams focus on stunting, tumbling skills, and athletic jumping and dancing. All Star Cheer develops well-rounded athletes and individuals, with a focus on strength, flexibility, coordination, stamina, teamwork, leadership, and work ethic. All Star Cheerleaders are divided into teams by both age and ability level. These teams perform a 2 1/2 minute routine when they compete at events across the Northeast and beyond. Routines are judged by their level of difficulty, technique, creativity, and overall entertainment value.
HOW DOES YOUR ALL STAR SEASON WORK?
Tryouts for our regular All Star teams occur in May, but late registration is accepted on a case-by-case basis! The teams begin practice in the end of May, and attend Choreography Camp in July to learn their routine. Teams then practice that routine until they begin competing locally in November. The competition season runs from November to May, with events typically occuring every other weekend during those months. Some of our All Star teams travel to overnight competitions, most within driving distance. These teams practice 2 days a week, and take an additional tumbling class once per week, which is included in their monthly tuition. All Star teams are open to athletes from 4-18, regardless of skill level.
WE’RE MORE THAN JUST A TEAM!
With team practices all the summer, team bonding events, holiday parties, special events at the gym, and participation in charity causes, your child is joining much more than just a cheer team. At Cheer Pride, they will become part of our family of coaches, parents, and other athletes who support them and want to see them succeed! We make sure that all of our athletes feel like they are a part of the group, surrounded by positive role models and excellent coaching. We do not just place kids on teams for a short term win, ignoring the possibility of growing their skills. Our kids are pushed to their potential in all areas of cheer, and your child will develop in these different areas while gaining confidence and learning the value of a strong work ethic.
