At Tech we offer recreational cheer classes for those wanting to learn the sport of all-star cheer. Cheer encompasses a variety of skills, including jumps, stunts, tumbling, and dance, and is a premiere example of a sport that teaches the necessity of teamwork. Our recreational program is designed to introduce the elements of competitive cheerleading, and to support the development of local recreational and school-based programs.

Our annual class year runs from September to August and consists of 14 four-week sessions. During our class year, once you sign up for a given class, your child will automatically be re-enrolled from session to session to ensure your child’s place in the class.

This class will teach basic and advanced motions, motion placement, and will incorporate multiple 8-count motion/dance sequences in each class. Athletes will develop body awareness and muscle memory, and increase their ability to adapt to new and varied choreography.
