What exactly is All-Star Cheerleading?
All-Star cheerleading is a sports activity that combines elements
of tumbling, dance, stunting, and traditional cheerleading skills
such as jumps and arm motions.
How are the teams configured?
Teams consist of up to 38 athletes performing fast paced,
exciting, and professionally choreographed 2½ minute routines
set to music.
Teams are set up by age-group and skill. For a general rule of
thumb: CCA offers Prep teams and Elite teams; so there is a
team for everyone!
Tiny Level teams consist of ages 5-8 years old.
Youth Level teams consist of ages 5-11 years old.
Junior Level teams consist of members 7-14 years old.
Senior Level teams consist of ages 12-18 years old.
Senior Worlds Division teams consist of ages 13-18 years old.
Open Worlds Division teams consist of ages 12-Adults
Teams compete at 6 difficulty levels ranging from level 1 for
beginners, up to level 6 for athletes with advanced skills. Our
training goal is to help kids progress through all 6 levels in a safe
and confident manner. It is normal and recommended for athletes
to do more than one year on a level to be successful and well
How often do you practice and compete?
All-Star teams compete against other All-Star gyms from across
the region and the country between November and May each
year, with most teams attending between 5 to 7 competitions.
Team schedules can vary. Teams practice 2 days a week for an
average of 1 to 3 hours each practice. The season runs from
tryouts in June until the last competition in April or May.
All-Star is also a co-ed activity and is great for boys as well as
girls. Some teams compete exclusively in co-ed divisions and
some in all-girl divisions. We have many boys that play football
for high school and continue to cheer in colleges around the
All-Star teams are great for developing healthy nutrition,
flexibility, coordination, time management, self-confidence and
self-esteem as well as developing positive life skills, personal
values, sportsmanship and teamwork.
