What is all-star cheerleading?

All star cheer is one of Canada’s fastest growing sports and it is quickly gaining popularity across the world!  In fact,it is on its way to becoming an Olympic sport. It is a fun team activity that combines all the athletic components of sport such as strength, power, flexibility, endurance, fitness and mental tenacity. It also helps athletes increase their body awareness and self-esteem and develops leadership and communication skills. Athletes in this sport work toward developing skills such as tumbling, jumping, stunting, performance skills, dance and team work.  At Perfect Storm Athletics we have cheer teams for athletes age 4 & up and for beginners through elite athletes.
