COMPETITIVE CHEERLEADING PROGRAM

Adrenaline All Stars is a successful cheerleading program located at Wayland Sports in both Surrey and Richmond, B.C. Our gym offers both recreational and competitive cheerleading at various levels, and fields an International All Girl Open Level 6 team with multiple appearances at the World Cheerleading Championships.

Adrenaline is committed to helping each athlete reach his or her full potential, and we are proud of our well-rounded approach to training. Our staff consider each aspect of the physical, mental and emotional athlete to be important, and strive to cultivate strength in all areas. The goal as a program is to develop confident, motivated young men and women, who are passionate not only about the sport of cheerleading, but also values of teamwork, accountability and dedication.

Adrenaline teams primarily train out of Wayland Sports Ltd. in Surrey, BC. We also have a second location available out of Wayland Sports Ltd in Richmond (Ironwood), BC where our International Open 6 team and Recreational Youth Vortex train. As Wayland Sports is a gymnastics facility, our athletes train & develop cheer & tumbling skills in a safe environment. We have access to the following equipment:

  • Trampolines & mini-tramp
  • 30ft TumbleTrak
  • Foam pit
  • Other gymnastics equipment such as beatboards, crash mats, various boxes, bars and more

Adrenaline All Stars is capturing local, national and international placings in the world of competitive cheer. Select teams also receive an opportunity to travel, perform at community events, and train under reknowned professionals Lisa Aucoin and Kenny Feeley from Spring Cheer Dance & Tumbling.

Contact cheer@waylandsports.com for your free trial class today!

Athletes may join at any point during the session.

During their time in prep cheer, they will learn all the fundamentals of cheer which includes: stunting, tumbling, jumping and dancing.

FAQ

Q: What is Adrenaline All Stars?

A: We are a competitive cheerleading program, also known as an all star cheerleading program. We guide each athlete to live up to his or her full potential, while teaching the invaluable skills necessary to succeed on a team working towards a common goal. Our goal is to support the development of well-rounded individuals, who excel both in and outside of our gym. A strong emphasis is placed on skill technique and developmental progressions; each athlete is taught the importance of execution and strong foundations in all aspects of competitive cheerleading which includes tumbling, stunts, jumps, and dance.

Q: What is All Star Cheerleading?

A: All star cheerleading is a highly competitive sport and one of the fastest growing in Canada. We do not cheer for other sports teams. Athletes perform a 2:30 min routine that is composed of jumps, tumbling, stunts, pyramid, and a dance. This routine is performed and scored against other competitive teams at various local, national, and worldwide competitions.

Tumbling is when athletes perform moves such as: cartwheels, round offs, back handsprings etc. Stunts are when a group is lifting or tosses a person in the air. Pyramids are a form of stunts, where stunts are performed as a large group and interconnected.

Q: What are the age requirements, divisions and levels?

A: There are many different combinations of age groups and levels. So many sometimes that they can be quite confusing! This system was created to ensure that like ages were competing with like skill sets.

Levels were designed to make sure that each team competes and is judged by how well they demonstrate a standard set of skills expected for every team competing at that same level. The levels range from 1-6 with level 6 being the highest and most difficult.

Teams are also split up by age, the age splits are as follows:
Tiny: 6 years & younger

Mini: 8 years & younger

Youth: 11 years & younger

Junior: 14 years & younger

Senior: 11-18 years

The age of the athlete as of August 31 will be the age used for team placement

Q: Can I join a team even though I have no previous “cheer” experience?

A: Yes! We find a team for everyone to be placed on. For athletes not wanting to commit to a full year round season, we recommend our Recreational Cheerleading program

Q: How do you place athletes onto their teams?

A: Our coaches take the time to put together teams where they feel each individual will work well with others on that team in order to create a successful routine. Our general rule is to place an athlete on their age appropriate team first, and then we invite them up to a higher-level team where they are asked to crossover. A crossover is when an athlete competes with more than one team. Exceptions can be made to this rule and is a case-by-case basis. It depends on what skill set an athlete has and where spots on teams need to be filled.

Q: If I don’t tumble can I still join cheer?

A: Most of our athletes began with little to no tumbling. Our staff works hard to ensure that all athletes meet their personal tumbling goals. These goals can be achieved if an athlete works hard, takes private lessons or enrolls in a tumbling class and keeps pushing themselves to achieve their goal.

Q: Where are competitions held?

A: Cheer competitions are held all over Canada and the US. Our teams primarily compete in British Columbia with some teams competing in the US.

The competitions can be 1 or 2 day events. One-day events are smaller and local, while 2-day events are larger national competitions.

Q: My child really wants to do Cheer. How do they get started?

A: The best way to get introduced to cheerleading is to put your child in our Recreational Program “Cheer Stars”. This class runs for a 14-week session (the same as our recreational gymnastics. They train once a week for 1.5 hours. This way, you will know that your child is enjoying the sport and will not change their mind after expenses and commitments have already been made.

Stay tuned for 2018-2019 competition results!

Please refer to your athlete handbook for competition dates and locations. Events schedules are typically released 1-2 weeks in advance of the event.
