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.

Academy Tuition

The Academy program tuition must be paid by the 25th of each month. Tuition not paid by that date will be automatically charged a $10 late fee.
