Cheerleading Classes

Champion Force Athletics is proud to offer a fun and exciting cheerleading program. Classes are available for all ages and skill levels. Practices are held once a week and teach students the fundamentals of cheer and dance. All athletes will have opportunities to showcase their new skills at competitions and events.

Cheer and Dance Fundamentals

Athletes learn the fundamentals of cheerleading and dance. Coaches teach the technical elements of motions, jumps, stunts, and dance routines. Athletes may advance to a higher level by aging up or by testing their skills. Coaches hold tryouts each season to evaluate each athlete’s skills and knowledge.

Cheer Competitions and Special Events

Each semester, a team will practice and perform at least one full routine for parents and at competitions. CFA competitions are held at the regional, state, and national levels. While these events aren’t mandatory for Recreational levels they are highly encouraged. Competitions offer athletes a chance to demonstrate their skills, to learn determination, and develop self-esteem. CFA also hosts cheerleading clinics and camps, and participates in special events like parades.
