Our Special Needs Cheer Team

At Tri-County, we pride ourselves on having a wonderful gym culture that is welcoming to athletes of all kinds. Cheer Friends is a competitive cheer team for special needs athletes. This team gives those with physical and cognitive disabilities the opportunity to shine as a member of a team. 

Class Structure

This is a 45 minute class and works on tumbling, dance skills, stunting, and overall coordination.  This team will compete in local cheerleading competitions.

Skills Development 

Our special needs cheerleaders will not only benefit from the improvement of their fine and gross motor skills but will also enjoy the thrill of performing in front of a crowd.

We pride ourselves on choreographing a routine that these athletes are able to perform by themselves on the competition mat showcasing their personal talents. We strive to push each cheerleader past her current capabilities and help her to reach heights she never knew was possible.
