Program Overview
Our Spring Cheer program is focused on skill development and progressing skills. All experience levels are welcome! It's an excellent opportunity for both new cheerleaders and those looking to level up their current skills.

We will work on tumbling, stunting and individual cheer skills as well as learn sideline cheers and choreography for a full routine to perform at our Lutz Chiefs Showcase and 1-2 fun local competitions in April.
