Pulaski County's Competitive Cheerleading and Dance team. 

Cheerleading Crash Course:
            All­‐star/competitive  cheerleading  is  a  competitive  team  sport  incorporating  skills  from  several  other  disciplines  such  as  gymnastics,  dance,  stunting and  cheer.  Our cheerleading squads do not cheer for other sports teams...  THEY ARE THE TEAM!
           All­‐star  cheerleading  teams  differ  from  other  teams  by  training  year-round  for competitions.  They  also  differ  from  most  other  sports  in  that  every  team  member  is  vital to  the  team  and  the  performance.  There are no “benchwarmers.”  Everybody has an integral part!  Each  member  of  the  squad  is  trained  in  all  aspects  of  the  sport  in  order  to develop  their  skills  to  reach  their  maximum  potential.
           All­‐star teams typically consist of between 5 and 25 athletes.  Squads can be either co-­ed or all­‐girl.  Teams  are  carefully  constructed  to  include  all  the  elements  needed  to perform  the  complex  routines.  Every team needs a combination of bases, flyers, tumblers and dancers.  Most  of  these  well-rounded  athletes  are  capable  of  performing all  of  these  skills.
            Competition routines are typically 2 minutes and 30 sec in length. They are packed with stunts, dances, cheers and tumbling.  Each element is perfectly choreographed to music.  Most teams have their music custom made for their routines. At competitions, the teams are divided by age and skill level. The routines are judged based on difficulty, technique, creativity and showmanship. Each team only has one opportunity to get it perfect. At most competitions, anything less than perfect will not result in a win. Here at United All-Stars we strive for perfection with respect. We know you can’t get the gold medal every time but as long as we have fun and great attitudes it is still a win to us!
