Minnesota Xtreme offers competitive cheerleading teams and training for boys and girls ages 3-18+. All Star cheerleading is a multi-faceted activity that is both physically and mentally challenging. It is a team driven sport which builds personal confidence, physical fitness and health and promotes excellence and good habits in all areas of life. At Minnesota Xtreme we follow a “Perfection Before Progression” ideology.
OUR SEASON AT A GLANCE
All Star teams compete based on the age and level structure set forth by the USASF, the governing body for All Star cheerleading in the United States. At Minnesota Xtreme, our teams are selected with these guidelines and based on several factors. All skills of cheerleading are evaluated including conditioning and strength, attitude and ability to work with a group, stunting, tumbling, jumps, motions and dance. An “I will” attitude will often be a deciding factor on team placement as mind set often plays the determining role in skill progression and perfection. Regardless of age or ability, everyone is places on a team at Minnesota Xtreme.
Practices from May through the mid-summer months are spent developing overall strength, conditioning and all skillsets that will be performed in the routine. This is also an important time as squad bonding, trust and commitment are developed Mid to late summer the choreography is learned for our competitive routines. We will begin working and perfecting our routines with the conditioning and skills developed. Team chemistry is forged during this time of constant repetition and the many challenges the team will face.
OCTOBER – MARCH
This is our main competitive season. As we continue to improve and perfect our routine we will be competing locally, regionally and nationally for some teams. Our Tiny, Mini and Youth teams will compete primarily in the Rochester and Twin Cities area. They will finish their season with one large regional competition. Our Junior and Senior teams, in addition to competing at both local and regional competitions, will also compete at one large national competition. These competitions range in size from 600-1000 teams, featuring the best All Star cheerleading programs from across the nation.
For the best of the best, in late April, are “The Cheerleading Worlds” for Level 5 teams and “The Summit” for all other levels. This is an HONOR that few teams get to attend as it is by invitation only. You must receive a bid at a qualifying event to attend these competitions. 1-5 bids are typically given at these events based on overall perfection score at the competition. If we receive a bid to one of these competitions, we WILL plan on adding it to our current competition schedule.
