Cheerleading

The sport where each athlete is a vital team member.

Cheerleading is:

  • An energetic sport that develops poise, coordination and self confidence

  • Develops team spirit and morale

  • Provides an exciting experience in a fun filled environment

  • Gives participants the opportunity to express rhythm in music


Competition routines include stunting, pyramids, group tumbling, jumping and a dance break. The athletes are not only trained for performance but also learn respect, dedication, self-confidence, commitment, sportsmanship and most importantly, teamwork.  

Teams compete at multiple competitions throughout the year, showcasing their routine. A high level of commitment is required in this sport as each athlete is vital in order to execute the routine. 

Higher level athletes are recommended to also attend a tumble class in conjunction to their competitive squad training.
