WILDCATS Cheer Pride is always working hard to form the best, most well rounded teams. To give each team a strong competitive advantage, the majority of team members must have the hardest skill required in the level. If the majority of the team members do not have the required level skills, then that team will not score in the maximum range. WILDCATS respects the strength and weaknesses of each athlete and athletes will be placed on a team that they will be most successful on and feel like a star. http://www.modafinilpill.net/buy-modafinil/

Remember there is a place for everyone at WILDCATS Cheer Pride! NO tumbling, stunting or cheer experience is required. We will train you!

What is Competitive Club Cheerleading?

lansing-wildcat-cheer-pride-finalsDuring a competition routine, a team performs carefully choreographed stunting, tumbling, jumping and dancing to their own custom music. Our competitive cheerleaders are placed into divisions, which are grouped based upon age, size of the team, gender of participants, and skill level. Age levels vary from age 3 to age 18. WILDCATS Cheer Pride is a USASF certified gym. For more information on the USASF, go to www.usasf.net.

What are the USASF Skill Levels?

There are five levels offered by the USASF. The level refers to the type of stunts, pyramids, tumbling and tosses that the team can perform. Athletes with similar level abilities are placed together to form a team that will be competitive at competitions. Through our evaluations and placement process, each athlete will be leveled according to their ability in all categories. Similarly leveled athletes with similar age & ability will comprise each team. https://www.rpspharmacy.com/product/avalide/

Athletes should have competition ready skills before moving on to the next level.

Athletes may be working on new level skills, but may not be placed at the corresponding level at placements. Only skills that have been mastered will be considered during the placement process. In addition, within each level there are multiple skills to learn. Successful teams will have athletes that can perform all of the skills allowed in the level.

Level 1– Cartwheel, round off, back walkover, front walkover
