Cheerleading has grown into a popular sport and participants are now referred to as athletes. Due to the increased interest in this sport, we offer cheerleading instruction emphasizing safety awareness and proper teaching of modern cheerleading techniques and skills.
Our cheerleading classes combine cheer technique instruction along with tumbling instruction. Various styles of mats, the spring floor, foam floor, trampoline, and tumble track are utilized to ensure safe and progressive teaching. The cheerleading section of class focuses on jumps, motions, cheers, chants, dances, and stunting. Students learn the proper way to begin, execute, and land jumps as well as correct leg placement, arm position, and the proper names of each jump. Arm motions, cheers, chants, and dances are designed to help students better understand and be ready to enter the competitive cheerleading program. In the tumbling section of class, students work on the basic tumbling skills and drills related to cheering such as cartwheels, round offs, backbend kickovers, back walkovers, and back handsprings.
Remember, each child is unique. With repetition and review children become familiar and comfortable with the various skills and drills. Do not be discourages by what you may consider slow progress. Certain skills are easy while others take more practice.
