WHAT to EXPECT at EVALUATIONS

What is All Star Cheer?

All Star cheerleading is a competition sport that involves boys and girls performing a routine composed of synchronized tumbling, stunting, jumping, pyramids and dancing.

What are the ages/levels/division of each team?

There are many different combinations of age groups, divisions, and levels. These were all created to insure that similar ages were competing with similar skill sets. Cheerleaders can begin as young as age 3 in our program and go as old as 18+.

Our program creates youth, junior and senior age divisions.

Is my child’s success determined by which team they are on?

There are 7 levels in all star cheer. Level 7 pertains mostly to international competitors, while 1 thru 6 are defined by difficulty of execution with 1 being the fundamental and 6 being the most difficult. Express Stingers has trained the introductory novice level 1 through level 4.

Athletes progress from level to level based upon their ability to successfully execute defined skills in tumbling, jumping, stunting and dance.

What is the time Commitment?

The All Star Cheer season is a continuous year long sport.

May – July is used to gain strength, skills, and coordination with others. This is the ideal time to take vacations and have family time.

August – November cheerleaders learn and prepare their team’s choreography.

December – April is competition season and can mean busy weekends and extra practices.
