Sparkle All-Star Team

Special Needs All-star Cheer Team

Bayside Athletics’ ‘Sparkle’ cheer team is a special needs all-star team for those with developmental and physical disabilities. This team is comprised of athletes ages 6 and above with varying abilities. Our athletes practice once a week and take part in local competitions and performances.

The sparkle team practices once a week. Their season runs from September through the first week in March.

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 sections as the competitive cheer teams do: jumps, motions, dance, stunts, pyramid, and tumbling. The routine is tailored to the abilities of each individual athlete so that all athletes can participate to the full extent of their abilities.

All Special Needs Participants must fill out our Special Needs Annual Information Form and Medical Waiver
