Join us for the 2019-2020 season

Missed Evaluations? Email Amy at cmawebster@gmail.com to schedule a private evaluation.

Every child who would like to be on a team at Central Mass Athletics for the 2019-2020 season will have to be evaluated.   The evaluation process will take about 25 minutes. At evaluations, cheerleaders will have time to stretch and warm up skills. A staff member will take notes on current jump and tumbling skills. Cheerleaders will also have the opportunity to demonstrate stunting ability with other cheerleaders at open house. Team placement will be based on your current skills.

The cost for evaluation is $20. This fee must be paid at the time of the evaluation.  The evaluation consists of showing a staff member his or her current skills.  You will also receive the NEW CMA logo t-shirt at evaluation!

How teams are formed after evaluations

All-star cheer has very specific requirements for routine composition.  In every category (stunt, pyramid, jumps, standing tumbling, and running tumbling) we have to complete a certain number of skills. Varsity All Star has skill-based system to which their score sheets are based on.  As coaches, we try to set up teams that are going to be the most successful in every category. Standing Tumbling is a very important part of the score sheet. We are judged on the # number athletes doing level appropriate skills at the same time.  When we evaluate an athlete, we first look at age. The grid posted here are the age groups that we must follow when forming teams.  The level of the team depends on the maximum number of athletes with certain tumbling or stunting skills. In certain situations, we may place a child on a team even if they do not meet the minimum tumbling requirement. 

Whenever possible, teams will be formed with 100% level appropriate tumbling skills. The maximum number of athletes on a team without level appropriate tumbling depends on the total number of athletes on a team.

We will be offering 4 different all-star programs in 2019-2020
