We understand the specific needs of cheerleaders and how having the ability to perform certain tricks can be the difference between making the squad or not. Tumbling is an extremely important part of being a successful cheerleader. We created our cheer program to focus on developing the skills you need to become a great cheerleader. In the lessons you learn great tumbling technique and amazing cheer skills.
Millcreek Gymnastics & Cheer is not your average gym. All of our students learn how to do a back handspring and a back tuck ON THE FIRST DAY! We also instruct our students on the proper technique for round-offs, aerials and combination tricks like a round-off back handspring back tuck and, when ready, twisting fulls. Our students also learn about lifelong fitness and receive conditioning for a toned body.
We incorporate teachings about developing and maintaining a positive self image and how to have a healthy self esteem. Our goal is to create well rounded athletes that are physically and mentally healthy. Happiness and positive self esteem are keys to becoming a successful athlete and person.
Our cheer class meets two times per week for a total of 4 hours per week. The maximum number of students in the cheer class is eight students – that way we can maintain our low student to coach ratio to ensure fast progress and more safety.
Students in all of our programs get to use spotting equipment that other gyms usually reserve for the upper level gymnasts. We use spotting belts, trampolines, specialized mats and expert instruction to speed up the learning process and make learning the tricks safer. Because we use the most up to date techniques and equipment our students often learn things that they couldn’t learn in years at another gym within days.
What we teach:
- Cheer jumps and stunts
- Vocal projection
- Pom pom skills
