Competitive Classes

AAU Cheer Competition Squads- This is a 3-4 hour a week class which includes  tumbling. Athletes are required to purchase the uniform and other accessories (shoes, socks, hairpiece, bow, etc), Parents must also participate in the Booster Club for fundraising. To be considered for the competition squads, you must first participate in our Pre-Cheer classes or have previous cheer/competition experience. Cheerleading is a sport that requires total committment and should be taken very seriously. New squads are formed the end of May through the end of June. The divisions are as follows: Mini- ages 8 and under, Youth- ages 11 and under, Junior- ages  14 and younger, Senior- ages 18 and under. The age is as of August 31st of current competition season. Students are placed on the squads by the coaches, not only by age, but also by stunting and tumbling levels as well. Competitions are held within driving distance such as Salem, Mattoon, Effingham, Arthur, St. Louis, Louisville, KY. Inquire in the office for further details. 

Tumbling and Trampoline Competition Team- This is a 3 or 6 hour a week class for ages 3 and up. It is recommended students participate in a tumbling class before team if they have not tumbled before. Students can compete as long as they can do a forward roll and backward roll. Competition suits are required to purchase and parents must participate in the Booster Club for fundraising.
