Additional Information

The Next Level Competitive Cheer program seeks to foster an environment to teach and instruct the principles and techniques of Competitive Cheer in a safe environment. We encourage all prospective participants to enter at their comfort level and grow their individual skills at their own pace throughout the season. The Cheer program operates with the inclusion of High School student-athletes as mentor coaches for each cheer group - similar to our core Next Level Sports programs including Next Level Flag Football and Next Level Basketball.

For our parents, we seek to keep your weekends free of tangled schedules - squad practice times will occur on the same weekday and same times throughout the duration of the program. This program is instructional based yet will contain competitive training activity as a secondary focus.

  • No prior competitive cheer experience is required to participant in the Next Level Cheer Program.
  • All equipment will be provided.
  • It is suggested that all players wear a comfortable pair of athletic shoes during the program activity.
  • Uniforms are included in the program registration fees, inclusive of home delivery of your uniform.
  • Our program is community-based - we encourage participants to join with their friends/classmates where possible as youth sports are much more fun with friends!
  • All squads will be assigned a Student Mentor Coach from a represented high school or college.

We strive to strike an ideal balance between healthy competition and character development. We seek to foster competition yet to also find balance in the ever-changing world of youth sports!
