All Stars Level 2 Cheerleading is the next level for advancing cheerleaders. Cheerleaders in this level generally have more than one year of cheerleading experience, normally with a Youth Sports Team, Middle School or High School. Athletes will need to have mastered the Back Hand Spring. The energy level required to execute the routines is starting to increase so, again, conditioning is key.
