The sport of All-Star Cheerleading has grown immensely from it's roots over 20 years ago. The hybrid sport of today is a combination of gymnastics, acrobatics, athletic dance, and many elements unique to All-Star. Today’s All-Star athlete can learn exciting skills in a fun, safe environment.
All-Star teams are typically comprised of 8-32 athletes between the ages of 3-18 years old,with a variety of skills and abilities (much like a football or basketball team.) There can be solid, well-rounded athletes and those who have particularly strong abilities in certain areas (ex. - strong dancers or jumpers). The coaches create a competition routine performed by the group that has elements of tumbling, stunting, jumping, dance, and other skills set to music. The routines are typically 2- 2 1/2 minutes in length. At competitions, the teams are divided by age and ability level. The routines are judged by their level of difﬁculty, precision, creativity, and entertainment value.
