ALLSTAR CHEERLEADING

What is Allstar Cheerleading? 

Cheerleading is a sport that combines various acrobatic and gymnastic elements. Cheerleaders originated as support for other sports teams during competitions, but under the branch 'Allstar Cheerleading' it has grown into its own discipline. Over the years, cheerleading has evolved into a highly athletic and competitive activity with an emphasis on teamwork, athleticism and showmanship.

 

An Allstar Cheerleading routine consists of stunts, jumps, pyramids and tosses that are connected with energy and enthusiasm with cheer dancing and creative transitions.

Teams are divided based on

  • age (mini, peewee, junior, youth, senior)

  • level (1-7)

  • gender (coed: boys and girls, and allgirl: only girls).

STRETCHES

Flyers, also known as Topgirls, practice extra on flexibility in order to perform the different body positions as beautifully as possible in the air. 

JUMPS

The toe touch is the most famous jump in cheerleading. This body position is also often performed in a basket toss. 
Jumps are often combined with standing tumbling in a routine.

GROUP STUNTS

A group stunt consists of:

  • 2 bases

  • 1 flyer​

  • 1 back spot

  • 1 front spot (optional)

Bases, Backspots and Frontspots train to develop strength and stunt technique. So that they can easily lift or throw the flyer into the air and of course catch them safely. 

A flyer should not be afraid of heights. They work on technique, tension, balance and body awareness, among other things, to make themselves as light as possible in the air.

COED STUNTS

Partner stunts are usually performed by men. A base lifts the topgirl into the air all by themselves.

BASKET TOSS

In a basket toss, the flyer is thrown into the air and caught back in a cradle position. 

During flight, the flyer performs turns, flips or other acrobatic movements.

PYRAMIDES

When flyers of different stunts hold on each other and the different stunts form one large whole, this is called a pyramid.
