Sparks is looking for athletes to form our
Special Needs team that will
compete at local competitions!
Sparks is in their 15th season with a special needs cheer team. This team is comprised of athletes ages 5 and above of varying abilities. We accept children of all disabilities and levels of functioning.
The team practices one time a week for 1 1/2 hour sessions running from September-April. During practices they work on fine and gross motor skills, self-esteem, team interactions and language skills through activities aimed at developing a comprehensive cheer routine. The team learns the same routine sections as the competitive cheer teams do: jumps, motions, dance, stunts, and tumbling. The routine is tailored to the abilities of each individual athlete so that all athletes can participate to the full extent of their abilities.
Stop by Sparks to pick up a packet and sign up for the team!
(Practices begin September 5th!)
