What is All Star Cheerleading?

All Star Cheer is a dynamic and competitive team sport where athletes work together to perform a combination of tumbling, acrobatic stunts, jumps and dance in a 2 and a half minute routine.Teams are formed by assessing athletes by age and skill level. There is a team for everyone and every athlete has an important role to play in the team’s success!
Teams compete at a number of competitions throughout the year at state, national and sometimes international level, against teams from other gyms.
At competitions, a teams routine is scored by professional judges; the team with the highest score wins!
Cheerleading develops coordination, skills and teamwork as well as important life lessons of respect, dedication, self-confidence and sportsmanship that we hope lasts with them well beyond the competition floor!
