What Is All-Star Cheer?

Stunting skills involve two or more athletes working together to hold a balance shape or throw a dynamic skill. 

Stunting Positions

Flyer - The top athlete being held in a shape or being thrown and caught.

Main Base - Athlete supporting, throwing or catching the flyer.

Secondary Base - Athlete helping to support, throw and catch the flyer.

Back Spotter - Athlete helping to support, throw and catch the flyer.

Skills are performed at various heights - ground, waist, shoulder (Prep level) and full stretch (Extension).

 
 

Tumble

Individual dynamic skills ranging from forward and backward rolls through handsprings and flicks to single and twisting somersaults. Athletes work two types of tumble in a routine.

Running Tumble - starts in a forward direction from running or forward skills such as handspring.

Standing Tumble - starts in a backward direction with steps or backward skills such as back walkover.

All our tumble skills are developed on the trampoline, fast track, air track or tumble track.

 

Dance

Dance is one of the mandatory section in a competitive All-Star Cheer routine. All team members are involved in performing the enthusiastic and energetic dance.

Dance moves are also used to link and consolidate the other sections of a competitive routine.

 

Jumps

Jumps are another mandatory section in the competitive All-Star Cheer routine.

 

Jumps include common gymnastics jumps such as Straight, Star, Tuck, Toe Touch (gymnastic straddle jump), Pike jump and cheer specific jumps such as Herkies and Hurdlers.

Single and linked jumps are performed.

Pyramids

Pyramids are two or more stunt groups connected and involve all team members.

 

Pyramid sequences are often fast paced, and may involve a variety of heights, mounts, transitions, release moves, and dismounts.
