At HGC we train the Hazel Green High School Varsity and JV competition cheerleading squads, as well as the Meridianville Middle School competition squad.
In the time Hazel Green has been coming to us, they have won two National Championships (the real Nationals - as seen on ESPN!) and placed second two of the other years. We started our association with them when one of our former team gymnasts was selected onto their squad, and it has been a great adventure for us. High School Cheerleading is extremely competitive in North Alabama, and we are very proud of the success of these teams. Our involvement with cheerleading is not limited to partnering with specific schools. We also coach recreational squads and, of course, teach tumbling to individual cheerleaders or those looking to try out in the future. Every week you will see cheerleaders from local high schools, or from as far away as Scottsboro and Albertville or Lacey's Spring and Arab in the other direction, even from many of the all-star programs in the area, working out at Huntsville Gymnastics to perfect their tumbling skills or add new skills. Our small class sizes, multiple training setups and, above all, our highly-qualified, experienced coaches, all draw athletes to us from teams and schools throughout North Alabama.
By adapting our proven techniques and years of experience, as coaches, athletes ourselves, and nationally-recognized experts in the field of safety, to the sport of cheerleading, we hope to develop some new and better opportunities for local athletes in this sport.
Because of the great demand for experienced coaching in the sport of cheerleading, both for school and for all-stars, we are adding a number of classes specifically aimed at these students. In addition to the tumbling classes, we now teach stunting classes for all ages and prepare athletes for tryouts for school and college. Please call and ask to speak to James for more details of these classes. We aim to take the same proven approach we use in developing top-class gymnasts and transfer that approach to the world of cheerleading. We want our cheer students to be physically prepared and to have excellent basics before they need to learn the advanced skills needed for school tryouts or for competitive cheerleading. Too often cheerleaders are dropped straight into competition without a solid foundation in the sport and without the preparation they need to be safe and successful. Come try out our approach to cheerleading!
