WHY CHOOSE VIRGINIA GEMS?

Season 9 is coming!

In true form to our name, our gems are polished and extraordinary. We are a sensation set to captivate the cheer world. We strive for perfection and have a blast doing it. Our coaches use their knowledge and experience to create dazzling cheerleaders. Together we sparkle and strive to become the rarest GEMS on the competition floor!

All Star cheerleading is an athletic activity that combines elements of stunts, gymnastic tumbling, dance, acrobatics and traditional cheerleading skills such as jumps and arm motions. Teams consist of up to 36 athletes performing exciting, professionally choreographed 2½ minute routines set to music. All Star teams are purely competitive and do not perform for any traditional team support or crowd leading duties for sports teams or schools.

Our teams compete against other All Star teams from across the region and the country at a full schedule competitions between December and May each year, with most teams attending between 6 to 10 events depending on age and level. Team schedules vary. Some teams travel extensively to major competitions. These are mostly our higher level teams or teams that we have set up to compete at larger events. While some primarily compete locally which are either our half-year teams or our lower level teams.

Teams are set up by age-group and Virginia Gems offers options to suit every athlete. The age groups offered are: Tiny (3-6yrs), Mini (6-8yrs), Youth (9-11yrs), Junior (12-14yrs), Senior (15-18yrs) & Open (17yrs+). Teams also compete at specific difficulty levels ranging from level 1 for beginners, up to level 5 and 6 for athletes with advanced skills. Our training program is designed to help athletes develop their skills and move to higher levels as they grow in the sport.

All Star is a co-ed activity and is great for boys as well as girls. Some teams compete exclusively in co-ed divisions and some in all-girl divisions. All star is a great way for children and young people to improve fitness and coordination. It is also a great environment for developing confidence and self esteem as well as developing positive life skills, personal values, sportsmanship and teamwork.
