WHAT IS ALL STAR CHEER?
All Star cheerleading is a competitive team sport incorporating skills from several other disciplines such as gymnastics, dance, stunting, and cheer. All Star cheerleading programs do not cheer for other sports teams.
They are the team!
WHAT IS THE USASF?
The United States All Star Federation (USASF) is the national governing body for All Star cheerleading programs. USASF determines various divisions, levels and requirements for competition and also administers the Cheer & Dance Worlds competitions. As certified instructors we comply with the organization’s safety, training and sportsmanship initiatives. Rules, glossary of terms, current industry news, etc. can all be found at USASF’s website, www.usasf.com
USASF Membership is required for all athletes competing at USASF sanctioned events. ($40 registration fee) As part of its safety initiatives, USASF also offers supplemental insurance to USASF members. Every athlete must have a birth certificate on file with the USASF in order to compete at USASF sanctioned events.
DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE EXPERIENCE TO CHEER FOR SIERRA XPLOSION?
No, absolutely not. We will place athletes on teams that will be the best fit for them. Placement is based on age and skill level.
IS TUMBLING REQUIRED?
Tumbling is not a requirement to join Sierra Xplosion, but it is a large factor of all star cheer. Athletes will learn the proper tumbling technique as they progress. Tumbling is one of the major components of a competition routine.
DO YOU HAVE TO TRYOUT? DO YOU GET CUT ?
We will have tryouts in the month of May, but we do not cut from our program. We will place athletes on teams based on their experience, skills and age.
CAN PARENTS STAY AND WATCH PRACTICE?
No. Unfortunately we have a closed practice policy. Closed practices allow athletes to focus solely on competitions without any outside distractions. It is very important that our athletes stay fully engaged especially when they are tumbling and stunting.
ARE THE INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
All teaching staff at Sierra Xplosion are USASF Certified and fully teach the proper technique that will keep them safe in the gym. We will provide positive discipline and structure on a consistent basis. Additionally, we will pay specific attention to each and every athlete to make sure they are progressing in his or her own abilities. We teach our athletes to excel in all areas of competitive cheerleading.
