About our All Star Program:
Mission: To offer an All Star cheerleading experience throughout the schoolyear in a Christian environment.
Goal: To introduce young girls to a competitive cheerleading environment with a focus on glorifying God through healthy competition, while using appropriate music, movements and uniforms.
Activities: Our CCASP teams are Level 1 or 2 Novice or Prep All-Star teams that focus on all elements of an All-Star routine: stunts, tumbling, jumps and dance for beginners 5 -12 (must be at least five) and birth year can not be before 2009.
Vision: Our desire at Cross Cheer All Star is that every girl would walk away from this experience feeling loved, encouraged, valued, and pointed towards a relationship with Jesus, all while learning the fundamentals of cheerleading.
All Star Season: September – February (6 months)
August 15th and 22nd will be our team evaluations. We will place girls on teams based on skill level, experience, and age.
Types of Teams:
Pre-Team: this is a Saturday afternoon class that will practice for 1.5 hours. This pre-team is meant for true beginners that with a year of learning the fundamentals would be prepared to make a competitive team next year. They will perform in the exhibition, but not go to the competitions. They will not have a true uniform, but will match their practice wear. The cost of this pre-team will be significantly less.
Novice Teams: these teams are ready to step into the competition world, but don’t compete yet against other teams. They compete against a rating system of Superior, Excellent or Good. Last year, both our Novice teams got ratings of Superior! These novice teams will practice on Sunday afternoons for 1.5-1.75 hours. They will have matching uniforms and compete at two metroplex competitions, and one exhibition for friends and family.
All Star Prep Teams Level 1: this teams will be competing against other gyms at local competitions. Our level 1 team will practice once a week for 2.25 hours on Sunday afternoon. We encourage that level 1 team to also take another tumbling class, but it’s not required. They will have matching uniforms and compete at two metroplex competitions, and one exhibition for friends and family.
All Star Prep Teams Level 2: this teams will be competing against other gyms at local competitions. Our level 2 team will practice twice a week. Once on Sunday afternoon and one night of the week, TBD. They will have matching uniforms and compete at two-three metroplex competitions, and one exhibition for friends and family. To make this team, a back handspring is highly recommended.
