Magic Valley Elite
Magic Valley Elite offers teams for all ages 5-18. We follow the USASF guidelines and place athletes accordingly. Cheerleading is a very hard mentally and physically and we work very hard to create the very finest competitive cheerleaders in southern Idaho. Having some knowledge/skills of cheer is helpful but having determined athletes that are willing to learn and show motivation is the best asset and are the easiest to teach. So, if you have drive and motivation and love cheer, then competitive cheer is the sport for you. Below is some important information about cheer and the commitment it requires plus an estimated cost breakdown.
Competitive cheer is a huge time commitment. Our program runs 11 months. It starts in May and ends the end of March. Summer practices are crucial in deciding our flyers for choreography and for working on technique with jumps and tumbling. We practice 2 times a week at 2 hours a practice plus tumbling which is optional however highly recommended.
