All Star Cheerleading Level 1
All Star Cheerleading Level 1 is the first step young Cheerleaders take in the sport. Most Cheerleaders competing at this level have never cheered before or have not cheered for long. The goal at this level is to provide introductions to basic stunting, jumps, and dance.
