All Star cheerleading is different from your ordinary sideline cheerleading because it is strictly competition and performance based.
We do not cheer for a specific sports team, but rather, we are the sport.  In All Star cheerleading, our athletes are able to learn
and advance their skills in a safe environment with a knowledgeable and experienced coaching staff.   Our teams learn and perform routines
consisting of tumbling, stunts, jumps, and dance.  There are several different program offerings in all star cheerleading that are governed by
the United States All Star Federation (USASF), including Fundamentals, Novice, Prep, Elite, and CheerAbilities.  The programs allow for
athletes to safely and successfully progress through the developmental stages of All Star.  There is truly a place for every athlete in this
sport.  Our program is a United States All Star Federation (USASF) Member Gym.  Read more about each of our programs below.
All Star Novice
Challenge. Explore. Elevate
All Star Prep
Train. Compete. Succeed
All Star Novice is our non-competitive, low-pressure option for athletes with
little to no previous experience.  It will expose the athletes to the competition
atmosphere, without having to worry about being scored or competing against
other teams.  They will perform their routine at events where they will be
evaluated and receive a rating only.  Novice runs on a half season with once
weekly practices beginning in October and attending 3 in-state competitions
from January-March.

We offer All Star Novice for ages 4-12.  Here are the divisions offered by the
USASF for those ages in Novice and corresponding eligible athlete birth years
for the 2020-2021 season:
Tiny - Born 2013-2016 - Level 1 (with restrictions)
Mini - Born 2011-2015 - Levels 1, 2
Youth - Born 2008-2015 - Levels 1, 2, 3

Evaluations for the 2020-2021 Novice Season will be held on September
14th, 2020.  The first step to register is to complete the
LCC Athlete

All Star Prep is our entry-level competitive program, as they will go up against
other teams, while offering a lesser time and financial commitment.  Having
some previous experience is helpful, but is not required.  Prep is a good fit for
an athlete who wants to compete, but needs a little more time to develop their
skills before transitioning to an Elite team, or someone who wants to compete
with less of a commitment.  This is also where most of our younger athletes
begin their competitive journeys. Prep runs on a full season with once weekly
practices beginning in June and moving to twice weekly practices in
mid-August.  They attend approximately 5 one-day competitions from
November-March.  

We offer All Star Prep for ages 5-16.  Here are the divisions offered by the
USASF for those ages in Prep and corresponding eligible athlete birth years for
the 2020-2021 season:
Tiny - Born 2013-2015 - Level 1.1
Mini - Born 2011-2015 - Levels 1.1, 2.1, 2.2
Youth - Born 2008-2015 - Levels 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2
Junior - Born 2004-2014 - Levels 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2

Evaluations for the 2020-2021 Prep Season will be held on June 15th-18th,
2020.  The first step to register is to complete the
LCC Athlete Information
Form.  Then, see more details here.

All Star Elite
Achieve. Excel. Master
Quarter Season Senior Dance
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, mostly in-state, but some out-of-state as well.  Each
team will have the goal of achieving a bid to an "end of season" event, either     
U.S. Finals, Summit, or Worlds, depending on the team.  Elite runs on a full
season with twice weekly practices beginning in June and attending 7-9
competitions from November-April/May.

We offer All Star Elite for ages 9-18.  5-8 year olds with a higher skill level may
be considered.  Here are the divisions offered by USASF for those ages in Elite

Quarter Season Senior Dance was created for those who compete for their
schools to have the all star experience after their school competitive seasons
have ended.  However, it is not required that athletes joining this team be on
their school teams.  Our quarter season team allows athletes from all around
our area the unique opportunity to come together to finish out their year in a
great way.  They will have fun meeting new people, continuing to advance their
skills, and experiencing the excitement of all star!  Tryouts/auditions are held in
the fall, with some possible choreography and practices being held in the fall
prior to the school competitive season beginning.  Team practices will then
resume in February after the conclusion on the IHSA seasons and competing
February-March.

We offer Quarter Season Senior Dance for ages 11-18.  Here are the divisions
offered by the USASF for those ages:

Dance
Senior - Ages 18 and under - hip hip, jazz, pom, lyrical/contemporary
