Recreational Classes

Our recreational programs serve many purposes including non-competitive options for those wishing to try out Cheerleading prior to entering our competitive programs, and supplementing training for another sport with a tumbling, fitness or flexibility class.

 

We currently offer recreational / non-competitive classes for the following disciplines:

  • Recreational Cheer

  • Tumbling

  • Flexibility

  • Fitness​

  • Combo (Tumble & Dance)

  • Little Ninja

Tumbling, flexibility and fitness classes are also offered to athletes who are not enrolled in any cheerleading class.  See our recreational / non-competitive classes below.

Recreational Cheerleading

Recreational Cheerleading is designed as an introduction to cheerleading for young athletes prior to entering the competitive program, or for those who do not wish to compete.  It aims to teach athletes the basics of cheerleading. Safe stunting and introduction to choreography are two of the main focuses in recreational cheerleading. No experience is required in the recreational program.

 

After developing the basic skills in the recreational cheerleading program, athletes will be ready to train in a more structured, skill-focused program. A perfect fit for those who want to try cheer before entering the competitive program!

Athletes who also want to try a tumbling class can register in Recreational Tumbling which is an additional 45 minute class.  There is a 15 minute supervised snack break between Rec Cheer and Rec Tumble!
