Whether you have your back handspring or are still learning your cartwheel, the Garden Gator All Star Cheer squad has a place for you. Coach Jordan Sullivan is excited to start the year, and is looking to add to the Gators cheer team. They welcome anyone who is on other recreational cheer teams or who are involved with other sports. “We will do our best to work with any schedule conflicts as best we can,” explained Sullivan.
Practices for the Gator cheerleaders are on Wednesday's and Friday's. To help the girls hone their skills, tuition also includes 1 hour a week of tumbling with co-owner and Coach John Skorski. Skorski also coaches with the Gator USAIGC competition gymnastics team at Lafayette. Coaches Skorski and Sullivan will work with the team on stretches, jump technique, flexibility, and conditioning.
The Gator cheer squad is open to children ages 6-14. If you are age 14 on August 31, you qualify as being age 14 for the competitive season. “No cheerleading or tumbling experience is needed. Our gym offers everything your child will need to get the skills they don't have,” said Sullivan. “We are trying to do an exhibition for our first competition of the season so that the new girls can get used to being on the mat and not have the pressure of competing against other teams. For that exhibition, they will be competing against themselves!”
Giant Gymnastics is running a registration special right now - if you sign your child up for cheerleading before September 15th, you will receive a welcome basket with tons of savings & goodies including a custom Gators hair bow. This offer is only while supplies last, so they recommend you don't wait to call.
