All Star is the sport term used to represent competitive Club Cheer and Dance. As they are typically affiliated with a gym or studio, All Star teams differ from cheer and dance teams that primarily support schools or recreational organizations. All Star athletes train and perform for the challenge and thrill of competition in a fast-paced and highly dynamic environment.
Beyond the Competition Floor
The US All Star Federation’s mission and values guide All Star to develop champions on and off the competition floor. Our member programs give young athletes the chance to learn, refine and build on their skill sets that will inspire them to become confident leaders and performers.
All Star offers many opportunities for participants of all ages and roles to enrich their lives through programs outside of the gym or studio. Leadership courses, coach credentialing programs, virtual workshops and national meetings — there's something for everyone. Continue reading to discover enrichment opportunities that speak to you.
All Star helps athletes acquire valuable skills and develop friendships that will later serve them in all facets of life. Here are a few of the programming and disciplines the USASF offers.
Working as a team toward a common goal creates bonds that are strengthened with each practice, performance and competition. All Star provides athletes the opportunity to engage with other athletes while developing their skills and deepening their experience in cheer and dance. Our athletes develop a sense of camaraderie and community, allowing them to nurture strong relationships that last a lifetime.
All Star doesn’t just teach the fundamentals of cheer or dance, it also instills respect for oneself and others. Athletes learn to respect their coaches who guide them and to follow rules that ensure practices and competitions are fair and safe. They also learn good sportsmanship and the importance of treating their opponents respectfully, win or lose.
