Our Cheer 101 class is the perfect introductory level class for kids who are wanting to learn about cheerleading and need to start at the most basic level. The purpose of this class is for kids to get more acclimated to the sport and to learn the “JAM Athletics Way”. The kids will stunt & tumble every week for the majority of class and will rotate working on dance, jumps, conditioning & motion technique each week. This class is great preparation for any kind of school cheerleading and for our own Novice, Prep, &  All Star programs.



Our Level System emphasizes training proper technique and progressions to increase the students’ success in learning skills, and to minimize the risk of injury. Instructors are trained to watch for performance technique and consistency when passing skills and levels. This is the most important part of passing a level. Correct Repetition, frequency, and consistency of good technique equals success.
