Cheerleading teams are structured using levels 1 - 5. In order to compete in a certain level, the athlete must have a mastery of the tumbling skills required for that particular level. Tumbling classes are also structured by levels, with the athlete working on next level skills. For example, an athlete in a Level 2 Tumbling class will be working on Level 3 Skills. If you are unsure of the level of your athlete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a private consultation.
