1st Class All Stars cheer-leading is a proud extension of First Class Gymnastics and was introduced to the world in 2009. Seeing the need for a facility which encourages young men and women to grow and develop into quality cheerleaders, the gym opened their doors to 50 very talented young men and women. With fantastic support of parents and coaches we have had great success in seasons past and we anticipate future seasons to be just as exciting and successful.
It is our goal to teach youth and young adults how to work together as a team and achieve a common goal, through quality gymnastics and cheerleader training. It is our goal to be a 1st Class Cheer organization.
At 1st Class All-Stars cheer-leading, our mission and purpose is to provide your child a fun and safe environment in which he or she can flourish. Along with our sponsor gym, our motto of “Kids 1st” says it all and we believe in providing a superior program to all.
