My child has never done cheerleading/tumbling/gymnastics before. How do we get started?

First, explore the programs tab and the various programs. This will give you a general idea of what each program is like. Then, call our front desk at 403-352-7744 in Red Deer or 587-350-8044 in Calgary to discuss schedule options and to set up a free tour and private lesson. The private lesson will be the best way to get a feel for what class will be the best fit for your child.

What is Premier Academy?
We are a cheer and tumbling gym with locations in Red Deer and Calgary, Alberta.  In Red Deer, we are also home to the Premier Preschool. We train athletes of ALL levels and ages in cheer, tumbling and dance. We offer competitive cheer teams that compete provincially, nationally and in the US. We also have recreational tumbling, cheer classes and a licensed Preschool program that incorporates fitness and learning into one great program.

For whom do your teams cheer?
Premier Academy teams do NOT cheer for a team; they are ON a competitive team and ranked against other cheer teams from gyms similar to Premier Academy. This is the cheerleading you often see showcased on ESPN.  Our sport is extremely athletic and skill based. Cheerleading competitions are held all over Canada and the US; Premier Academy teams compete primarily in Alberta with some teams competing in the US.

What ages can my child start tumbling and cheer classes?

At Premier Academy, tumbling classes start as young as two in our Move and Play Parent & Tot class.  Our all-star cheer teams range from ages 4-18 years old.

How are tumbling classes at PREMIER ACADEMY different from gymnastic classes?
Tumbling classes at Premier Academy revolve strictly around floorwork. Tumbling training involves trampolines, spring floors and various instructional mats. Athletes begin by learning forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, and progress to back handsprings, tucks, and full twisting lay-outs.

How is cheerleading at PREMIER ACADEMY different from dance classes?
If you like dance, you’ll LOVE cheerleading!  Cheerleading is fast paced and incorporates dance, tumbling and acrobatics all into one jam packed routine.  It is also one of the most team oriented sports out there.
