Announcing the South Elite Host Family Program!

With the rising popularity of our program we have been receiving many requests to offer a Host Family program for high school age athletes living outside of our service area.  This would be similar to being an exchange student or living with a “billet family” like those of a hockey program.  We are thrilled to announce that we will be offering this for the 2014-2015 season.

If you are a Level 4 or 5 cheerleader who is interested in making a serious commitment to training, please contact kimkawachi@comcast.net for additional details.

Additional changes have been made to the April calendar,
please note changes on these specific dates:

Friday, April 18:  Tumbling Clinic ONLY, No Open Gym - SIGN UP NOW!!
