All Star Cheerleading Program
TKO Cheer offers competition cheerleading teams which are both mentally and physically demanding for our athletes to work toward their full potential. All Star Cheerleading also develops the habits for healthy living and also promotes excellence in many other areas of life.
Why All Star Cheerleading?
With our progressional training of our students they gain a confident awareness of what they've learned. This carries over into their competition performances further strengthening their confidence.
Responsibility and Reliability:
These traits are a necessity and are developed in order to uphold the commitment they made to their teammates. Some of the most important include: Maintaining Academics, Proper Nutrition, Punctuality and Responsibility.
Improved Social Skills and Cognitive Development:
The challenges the athletes face over the course of the season teach them to work together and master difficult and intricate routines. It will both sharpen their minds as well as their social skills among their peers and adults. Although it takes time, learning to communicate clear messages will surely be an asset for the rest of their lives.
At TKO, we have a cheer team available for everyone.
