Alberta offers 3 types of cheerleading programs: School, All Star and Pom & Dance, all of which are further broken down into levels and divisions based on age and skill level. Take a look at our Judging section for a more detailed breakdown of the divisions.

School Cheerleading

School cheerleaders are athletes who are on a team based out of their school (elementary through post-secondary).  Competitive routines are 2.5 minutes long and include acrobatic stunting, tumbling and dancing.  In Alberta there are Zone and Provincial Championships at both the Junior High and High School level and cheerleading is recognized as an official sport by the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA). In addition to training for competitions, school cheer teams may also cheer for school teams such as basketball, football etc., or participate in school or community events. 

All Star Cheerleading

All Star cheerleaders do not cheer for specific schools or sports teams, though some do participate, volunteer and perform in community events.  Athletes work towards perfecting a 2.5 minute routine which includes acrobatic stunting, tumbling and dancing.  All Star teams are typically based out of a private cheer gym or gymnastics facility and may offer teams from 3 years old through to adults with recreational and/or competitive programs.  All Star gyms often provide additional opportunities to train and build skills with camps and clinics in various skill areas.  Scroll down for a listing of All-Star cheerleading clubs in Alberta.

Pom & Dance

Offered in both schools and at All Star gyms, Pom & Dance is a dance-only category that does not include stunting elements (some lifts are now permitted - please see the rules and guidelines for further information).  Pom & Dance teams may incorporate a number of dance styles within their routines including, but not limited to: Jazz, Hip-Hop or Cheer dance motions.  Athletes build technical dance skills in the areas of kicks, jumps and turns, and routines usually involve a number of eye-catching transitions, levels and formation changes.  Some teams may also choose to incorporate the use of props (as approved).  Pom-Poms may also add some flash and flair and can be used to enhance routines and dance styles.
