What Makes Us Proud:

We are proud to share the sport of cheer with so many young athletes. We feel that the Star Athletics experience is high-quality and not easily duplicated by other sports or programs. We are confident in our classes, training methods, and our competitive cheer routines. We are also proud of the lessons our athletes learn and internalize as they train at our gym.

 


Our Staff

EXPERIENCE & EXCELLENCE – What makes the staff qualified to train athletes?

Star Athletics offers a credentialed, USASF certified coaching staff made up of former cheer athletes who lived many cheer experiences themselves. The coaching staff spends countless hours on research and planning to ensure that Star Athletics athletes are given proper instruction and a state-of-the-sport training regimen. The Star Athletics staff is experienced working with cheer athletes of all ages. In fact, the majority of the staff has an education degree. Our office manager is a former elementary school nurse.

 

COACHING PHILOSOPHY – What is the staff’s coaching style?

It is said that we are all products of our environment, so it is important to understand the environment your family is entering when joining an all-star cheer program. The Star Athletics program is inspired by the coaching philosophies and teachings of the late UCLA basketball coach, John Wooden. The John Wooden Success Pyramid is the cornerstone of Star Athletics culture. It teaches our athletes many valuable lessons about teamwork, commitment, personal development and focus. The coaches offer quotes by John Wooden throughout the season and the athletes see these quotes come to life as they participate in the program.
