All-star cheer is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada and internationally. Combining the
competitive aspects of sport such as strength, power, flexibility, endurance, fitness and mental fortitude, cheer also offers a variety of disciplines (such as dance and gymnastics) in a fun and dynamic environment. Athletes also develop leadership and communication skills while gaining body awareness, self esteem and positive friendships. Athletes develop skills in tumbling, jumps, dance, stunting, performance and teamwork in competitive and non competitive situations. The gaps of gender and ability are also bridged with boys and girls able to compete together on teams and special needs and parent programs being introduced in some gyms. In 2013 Cheerleading gained international sport recognition by the Olympic committee and is now headed towards an Olympic debut!
All-star Cheerleading in BC is governed by the BC Cheerleading Association who is an active member of Cheer Canada. In addition to training in local programs, athletes who progress in the sport are able to tryout for the opportunity to represent our country on one of our national teams.
