The All-Star Cheer program requires a strong commitment from the athlete as well as the athlete’s family.
It is a great way for athletes to learn new skills, develop a sense of what it means to work together as a team
for a common goal and to develop a sense of pride and sportsmanship while making life-long friendships.

All-Star Cheer teams are typically comprised of 10–36 athletes with similar skill levels and of similar ages.
Based upon the skill, age, size and make-up of the team, the teams are categorized into different divisions.
Each team is taught a competition routine that has elements of tumbling, stunting, jumping and dance skills
to music. The routines are typically 2 đ minutes in length. At a competition, the team performs their
routine for a panel of judges who score the performance based upon the level of difficulty, precision,
creativity and entertainment value. The team’s placement within their division is based upon the score
they received compared to the scores of the other teams within their division.

A flyer is a very demanding position at ACA. It requires the utmost focus combined with personality and
sometimes additional hours of intense preparation. In order to help our flyers develop better technique and
flexibility, if your athlete is chosen as a flyer, they will have an additional flyer stretches and conditioning
to do inside and outside of class.

ACA tries to move athletes as little as possible but understand that there WILL BE movement within our program of
athletes. Movement can happen based on the gaining or losing of skills, or the need on a team for certain skills.
Movement can happen all season until the best possible combination of athletes are together for the success of that
team. Having trust in the ACA staff to build teams that will be successful at competitions is essential.
