Cal Elite Kids

We believe that every child is a champion. We believe in providing excellent training in an environment where the child comes first. We believe that participating in athletics should be challenging and progressive, but never at the expense of fun... or a child’s self worth. We believe that sports should serve as a springboard for lifelong health and fitness, as well as an enduring source of validation and pride. We recognize that each child is unique and that each child learns in his or her own way. We understand that each success, great and small, is important.

Welcome to Cal Elite Kids.

Cheerleading/Tumbling

Cheerleading is a dynamic blend of tumbling, dance, and performance wrapped up in one sport. It develops strength, flexibility, spunk, and power, and it teaches life lessons of teamwork, commitment, responsibility, and camaraderie. We offer instructional cheer programs and will be forming performance and competitive team programs. Our focus is on excellent training and superior athletics, and we maintain high standards for wholesome music, choreography, uniforms, and coaching.

Tumbling builds strength, power, courage, and confidence! Tumbling also gives children a perfect venue for showing off both in and out of the gym! Tumbling is an important component of cheerleading, gymnastics, and dance. Strong tumbling skills distinguish an athlete in any of these disciplines and many of our gymnasts, cheerleaders and dancers cross train in tumbling. Tumbling also develops body awareness and balance and is a favorite for football players, soccer players and other athletes.
