WELCOME TO SMYO CHEER ELITE!
We offer year-round, competitive Performance Recreation Cheerleading for athletes ages 5 and up.
Our mission is to provide a fun, safe, encouraging cheerleading atmosphere; while teaching the skills to develop strong character, positive attitudes, responsibility and citizenship as well as instilling positive goals, dreams and values in cheerleading.
SMYO Cheer Elite differs from traditional school/recreational cheer programs largely because of our focus on competing. There are no games to cheer at, no spirit-raising and most of the athletes on each team will not even attend the same school. We refer to our participants as "athletes" rather than by any other name and that's because of the caliber and intensity of training that they do on a weekly basis to be able to contribute to his or her competitive team.
Our program has a place for everyone, regardless of skill level. The teams are placed into divisions, which are based upon age, size of the team, and ability level. Coaches will typically train their athletes on individual skills and team components for months before choreographing routines that combine those skills together to be judged against other teams in their division.
We strive to keep our costs as low as possible while delivering the best cheer experience for our athletes. Registration Fee includes the following for each participant: Uniform (that you keep); Spirit Pack; and three to four competitions.
Fundraising will be done to raise money for music; a Championship competition; and mats.
