The skill sets for an Elite Team are Levels 1 – 6. Chiefs skills set is Level 6 and athletes must be of Senior age.  Both teams will attend local and travel events.  Elite teams are eligible for The Summit and other End of Season events. Chiefs are eligible for The Cheerleading Worlds. Both types of these teams require a high level of commitment for a full year.

What team will my athlete be on?

We have school cheer, can we do both?

Yes, we encourage our athletes to do both school and all-star cheer. We work around school schedules as much as we can and excuse your absence if you miss a practice. Please note if you are on a National or Worlds team we ask for schools to work with us as to ensure nothing over laps. – Additional discounts are given to athletes who train both at ACE with their School Program and on an  ACE All-Star Cheer team.
