What is All Star Cheerleading?
All Star cheerleading is a competition sport that involves boys and girls performing a 2 minute routing composed of tumbling, stunting, pyramids, dance, and cheer segments. This routing is performed and scored against other competitive teams at various local, regional, national, and worldwide competitions. We will be competing in American Cheer Competitions.www.americancheerpower.com and Cheer Star Productions www.cheerstarproductions.com
An All Star cheer team performs purely for the challenge, thrill, and competition of the sport, unlike cheering for their school which is to support the school’s sports teams and keep the crowd excited. All Star cheerleaders are not required to be from the same school or area, and in many cases the skill set required for All Stars is much more difficult.
Age Requirements, Divisions, Levels
Levels are based on skill, not age. Once practice starts, I will decide what level we will compete. We will be an All Star PREP team, which means I will not hold try-outs. Our team will be co-ed for ages 14 and under. We will also have a senior team for ages 18 and under beginning in 2013.

-** To help defray the costs of competition:
Each family will be given a "sponsorship package" when you register. This will have all the info and forms required to get sponsors for your athlete. If utilized, your cost could be $0.
-Many Team Members carpool and share travel costs to save money
Most competitions are held on Sundays.
Some competitions will be early morning and some in the late evening. We won't know our competition time until the week, possibly the day before so please arrange NOW to have the whole day available! This is SO important!!! These dates are not set in stone. They are sometimes canceled or changed due to low registration etc. I will always let parents know changes and soon as I know them.
Some teams choose to only compete at 3 or 4 competitions each year. The philosophy of Empowered Cheer is .these athletes work so hard that I feel they should get to show off at least once per month!!!! That is what they work so hard for.
