|2019-2020 All Star Elite Evaluations
Open to girls and boys ages 9-18
We are so excited that you are considering joining our All Star Elite program for the 2019-2020 season! All Star Elite is the complete
competitive experience. Previous experience in cheer, gymnastics, or tumbling is required. This is for athletes that want to be "all in," and
requires a higher commitment level and elevated performance expectations. Our Elite teams compete at several competitions, including
some two-day events, both in-state and out-of-state. Each team will have the goal of achieving a bid to an "end of season" event, with the
exact event and location varying from team to team. Elite runs on a full season with twice weekly practices beginning in June and attending
7-11 competitions from November-April/May.
Please read the information below regarding our parent informational meetings, how to register, and when to attend evaluations.
Can't wait to see you soon!
