All-Star cheer is one of the fastest growing competitive sports in Canada. Competitive cheerleaders do not cheer for a specific school or sports team. They cheer for themselves and for the love of the sport. Athletes work towards perfecting a two and a half minute routine, which includes acrobatic stunting, tumbling and dancing. Competitive cheerleading is a great way to improve your strength, flexibility, endurance, and coordination. Being a valuable member of a team is a great way to build self-confidence and develop social skills. Competitive cheerleading is the ultimate team sport, as it relies on every member of the team to be successful. Our cheer teams follow the United States All-Star Federation (USASF) rules for cheerleading.
The Gymniks All-Stars cheerleading program goals are:
- To give young athletes the opportunity to benefit from a challenging level of training and competition.
- To offer a challenging and rewarding program that will stimulate the personal growth of each athlete involved.
- To develop the best cheerleader possible.
- To proudly and tastefully represent the Grande Prairie Gymniks
The Club level of competition in Western Canada is growing dramatically. It has to be understood that it is far from being a recreational program. The coaching staff expects a lot of determination, discipline, and dedication from each athlete. The coaches will emphasize physical, technical, and mental development with each cheerleader. The training sessions will be very challenging and will require great concentration, determination, coachability, and self-discipline from everyone involved. The coaching staff is receptive and happy to help young athletes cope with the demands of the program. Our primary goal remains the growth of each individual.
