Welcome to Spirit Cheerleading & Spirit Cheerleading All Stars


Spirit Cheerleading is a non-profit organization in the Southwest suburbs of Illinois and focuses on recreational cheer at it's finest! We enroll youths Kindergarten through 8th grade and teach them the fundamentals of cheerleading and dance in a fun and energetic atmosphere. We host 2 competitions per school year that are held at the end of each session.  Trophies and ribbons will be given to all who participate! We strive to teach the children good sportsmanship, teamwork and dedication in a positive learning environment. We have 9 locations to choose from so you are sure to find a location near you!!  Click on Recreational Cheer for more info!

Spirit All Stars takes recreational cheer and poms to the next level!  SAS is a year round program that starts at the end of May and compete Oct. thur April ending their season mid-May with an all out performance. These teams compete locally with their professionally choreographed routines against teams from all over the Mid-west. Only one out of state competition per year which is in Wisconsin Dells!  This is for the die-hard cheerleader that wants more stunting, more tumbling and more competitions then recreational cheer has to offer.  For poms it's the girl who loves to dance but maybe doesn't like the stunting or tumbling but likes everything else with added leaps and turns.  Click on All Star Cheer for more info!  Try-outs in May!

Our state-of-the-art cheer facility is the place to take tumbling classes, host birthday parties, attend speciality clinics or work independently at our open gyms!  Open gyms are for anyone ages 5 and up, $5 for SAS, $7 for Rec members, $10 for non-members

New All Star Prep Teams!!!  These teams will practice only 2 hours per week and will attend 2 all star competitions and 2 rec cheer competitions.  These teams are for those athlete's that participate in other sports and cannot dedicate as much time to cheer.  The fees are much more cost effective then full season all star but still allows for the all star atmosphere and all star competitions.  A perfect middle between rec cheer and full season all star cheer.  If you are interested in our Prep Teams your child should attend try-outs in May or call for an personal evaluation.  It's preferred that cheerleaders start in May but you may join up until Choreography which will be held in September.
