Competitive Cheerleading is an energetic, athletic, and extremely fast paced sport for both girls and boys ages 3+. With provisional Olympic status, competitive cheerleading is an internationally recognised sport & on it's way to the Olympic stage in the coming years! Cheerleading programs who are members of our Provincial Sport Association - "BC Sport Cheer" are also recognised by Sport BC & ViaSport in our province which allows for access to funding through Kid Sport BC and many other benefits!
Competitive Cheerleading combines unique elements of tumbling, stunting, jumping, pyramids and choreography into exciting 2 minute and 30 second routines which are performed at competitions against opposing teams of the same age group and skill level. Teams are scored in cheer on areas such as technique, difficulty, performance, and creativity.
There is room for everyone at Island Elite & no experience is required to join our entry level teams! Athletes will benefit from competitive cheerleading by gaining strength, confidence, work ethic, flexibility, mental toughness, performance skills and more! At Island Elite, we offer competitive (elite, prep, and novice) cheer teams for all ages and levels. See team chart below for more information.
Tryouts take place May 30th-June 3rd. Enrolment stays open after tryouts until teams fill up, until early September. Please email us if you are looking for a spot on one of our teams today!
