ACA All Star Cheer 2020/2021 Information
On behalf of ATA and our Austin Cheer Academy All Star program staff, we encourage you to become a part of our ACA family! We have learned a lot in our first year and we are looking forward to an even better cheer program for next season!
We have prepared the following information to help you understand the commitment level that we expect from our ACA All Star Cheer athletes and families. Please take time to read over the following and let us know if you have any questions.
The ACA program offers athletes an opportunity to experience the excitement of All-Star cheer with the ability to still maintain a reasonable life balance. Our training schedule is well planned for efficient practices and fiscally responsible financial obligation. To make this happen and be successful, it is necessary for ACA and our athletes to be fully committed to our teams. Every athlete needs to make every effort to attend all choreography camps, practices, competitions, etc. The schedule will be communicated before the season begins in order for the athlete to plan accordingly and determine if they can make the commitment.
ACA’s athletes 5 - 18 years old (as of August 31st, 2020) will learn a competitive cheer routine which includes tumbling, jumping, stunting, and dance.
