Cheerleading Program

 

cheer varsity 2Promoting good sportsmanship and SPIRIT, students will also have the opportunity to participate in ACTIVSTARS Special Cheer Events.

ACTIVSTARS combines Pom dance and Cheerleading into one program.  Students are taught cheerleading techniques such as short chants, arm motions, jumps, kicks and stunting techniques.  Students are also taught a special long team performance cheer and cheer dance routine (with use of poms) each semester that is presented by each team at the Cheer Showcase.  We have incorporated the most modern and current dance techniques into our curriculum, and developed teaching methods that work best for children and teens.  Cheerleading is a TEAM-ORIENTED sport and we encourage students to demonstrate teamwork, sportsmanship and dedication to being part of the team while participating in our program.

Colored Pom Tryouts

Students will also have the opportunity to tryout for twenty different pom squads towards the end of every semester.  Tryouts give students something to work for and prepares them for future tryouts on school squads.  Tryouts are usually held the week prior to the final lesson for $12.00 plus the regular practice fee.  Tryouts are not required, but to be eligible to “tryout” students must have “PERFECT ATTENDANCE” – all absences must be made up prior to tryouts.  A new colored pom will be awarded for each level achieved on Awards Night for students who participate in the colored pom tryouts.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Students must have perfect attendance in order to participate in Colored Pom Tryouts

REQUIRED ITEMS:  Poms are required in this program (students participating in the Showcase are required to purchase and use the ACTIVSTARS metallic team-level poms).  Mark your child’s poms for identification.  We are not responsible for lost poms.  Do not leave our poms in the heat or sunlight as this will damage them.  There are no refunds for poms.  Uniforms are required for Showcases, & Competitions.

~All poms are purchased directly at practice.

POM TAGS:  We are also proud to offer our ACTIVSTARS "Pom Tags" to our students to label and personalize their poms.  This is ideal for weekly team practices because at times the poms can be mixed with other students' and for identification purposes our tags are ideal.  They are sold directly on location for only $5.00 per set.

CHEER TEAM UNIFORMS:  Cheer uniforms are required (per team) for students to wear if they wish to participate in ACTIVSTARS special events such as SHOWCASE & COMPETITION – these are required so that the performers match and look like a united, uniformed TEAM!  Attendance at these events is NOT required to participate in our program; we do recommend that students take advantage of these opportunities as they are FUN and REWARDING experiences for our cheer students.

The ACTIVSTARS Cheer Program Uniforms are stylish and current yet they are also durable,         comfortable and long-lasting.  Every cheerleader wants to feel like an athlete when they take the floor to perform, having a great uniform on completes the look and feel of a cheerleader!  Let your SPIRIT shine!
