Well-known for its basketball, soccer, volleyball and football training, DME Sports Academy desired to open a new door with the addition of an All-Star Cheerleading program. After ample talks with the owners of Champion Elite, Mike and Dan Panaggio, the co-founders of the academy decided to adopt its All-Star Cheerleading program with its athletes and coaches joining DME Sports Academy.
The All-Star Cheer program prides itself on teaching the value of teamwork, dedication, and athleticism. All the coaches here are USASF-certified who can bring the highest level of knowledge to the sport. Affirmative coaching, dedicated athletes, and passionate parents make the program a triple threat on the competition floor. It holds the belief that every athlete can leave this year feeling accomplished not only as an athlete but as a person in the community as well.
The All-Star Cheer program is in its first month of opening. It has three new coaches and many new athletes as well as the new spring floor and tumbling equipment. All – Star Cheer athletes and interested participants are invited to attend weekend tumbling clinics every Saturday morning. Beginning July 15th, athletes will be able to participate in BHS, Tucks, and Layout/Full Clinics. On July 22nd, the next fundraiser for All – Star Cheer will be hosted at Giuseppe’s Pizza on Nova Road. An online popcorn fundraiser is projected to take place in August, as well.
Please check the schedule below for more information on the upcoming events. If you or your athlete are interested in participating in the All- Star program in various capacities, please contact Ashley Hughes, (256) 558-8208 firstname.lastname@example.org.
