Special Needs All Star Cheer

Bayside Athletics’ loves our ‘Extraordinary Athletes’! Our Sparkle all-star cheer team is certainly special. We encourage your extraordinary athletes and help them reach their goals. This team is comprised of athletes ages 6 and above with varying abilities. Our athletes practice once a week and take part in 3 local and 1 ‘travel to’ competition.

The sparkle team practices one time a week for a 1.5 hours. During practices they work on fine and gross motor, self-esteem, team interactions and language skills through activities aimed at developing a comprehensive cheer routine. The team learns the same routine components as all-star cheer teams do: jumps, motions, dance, stunts, pyramids and tumbling to the ability in which the team can perform them. We tailored our routine accordingly to the abilities of each individual athlete so that all athletes can participate to their fullest potential.

We also provide special needs classes other than our all star team through out the year. Our Sparkle team and classes focus on goal oriented learning opportunities and positive peer interactions while having fun and learning new skills—we have a lot of fun at Bayside.
