Elite All-Stars offers cheerleading for all ages 4+ years. Our program incorporates all elements of cheerleading including motions, jumps, stunts, tumbling, dance, cheer, strength and conditioning.
Elite All-Stars has three types of programs:
★ Competition – Is open to beginner through to experience cheerleaders. They are part of a team and work with their team in a fun and safe environment to learn routines which are then performed at competitions throughout the second half of the year. Competition teams require full commitment for the year.
★ Recreational – Is a great place to start your cheerleading life when you are unsure if you want to compete. You will still learn all the aspects of cheerleading but without the added pressure and commitment of competitions.
★ Dance – is open to recreational and competition athletes. Dance is a small section of our program although we are always looking to put more teams on.
All our athletes are trained to reach their full potential, but more so, they are taught how to work together as a team for a common goal and have fun.
All-Star cheerleading is a great way for young children to learn new skills while building teamwork, goal-setting, sportsmanship, social skills and developing life long friendships.
Our competitive cheer teams train a minimum of twice a week and are obligated to compete at various competitions throughout the year. A competitive cheer routine is made up of baskets, pyramids, stunts, tumbling, dance, jumps and motions and goes for a maximum of 2 mins and 30 seconds. It is an extremely dynamic routine that the athletes train towards each year. You do not have to have any experience to join one of our competition teams, as you will be placed accordingly with others of your experience.
Our competitive pom teams train a minimum of one hour week and are required to learn certain dance skills – all of which are taught in class. You do not need to have any dance experience to join one of our comp pom teams. Pom is also a 2 min and 30 second routine but is strictly all dance and “dance lifts”. 2 small poms poms per person are used to create different effects within the dance group.
Selection for our teams are designed, as best we can, to give each team a roughly equal chance for success within their division.
Much like other sports, a variety of skills, and abilities are necessary to give teams the best opportunity to place highly at competitions. We try to match up the athletes as best as we can, but please remember that maturity, stunting, pyramids, jumps, dance, motions, and age are huge factors as well. It is simply not feasible (or desirable) for every team to have exactly matched identical athletes.
Some will be stronger tumblers than others. Some will help us out with stunts more than others. Every athlete is on a team for a reason – please trust the coaches. We will always progress an athletes skill when they are ready. This may mean they are training their skills for the next level in preparation for the following year.
The most common confusion or misconception from parents and athletes relates to tumbling ability. There are many factors that go into determining the best spot for an athlete, not just how well they can tumble.
Elite All-Stars offers classes in general cheer, dance, pom and tumbling classes for children aged 3+ through to adults – beginners through to advanced. We offer recreational classes just for fun and fitness and competition classes, which train for regular competitions and special events.
A weekly class for people who do not wish to compete or for new students who join half way through the year. A fun and relaxed class teaching all the basic elements of cheer. For people wanting to have a little fun, gain fitness and build confidence. All cheerleaders work on a cheer routine for the end of year performance.
Attendance and commitment is extremely important to develop a strong competitive squad. There is the option to train in 2 squads over two age groups. Competing up to 8 times over the competition season June to November. All squads perform at the end of year performance.
Routine using poms to create visual effects, skills including jumps, turns, tumbling elements etc.
Tumble Classes focus on basic handstands and forward rolls through to back handsprings, cartwheels, etc. Our tumble classes are split into small groups of athletes with similar tumble abilities. Each small group has a dedicated coach. We progress each athlete at their own speed.
Stretch and Flex classes focus on improving flexibility and core strength which are very important aspects of Cheer and Dance. These classes are done in small groups and utilise conditioning equipment.
Small groups of 4 – 5 cheerleaders working on stunting skills. Our group stunt teams compete at all competitions and perform a one minute choreographed routine.
