What is Prep Cheerleading?

"Prep" is short for preparation, meaning a prep team provides a slimmed down approach to competitive cheerleading, with all the hype, but not all the dollar signs! Teams are meant to prepare athletes for what a full All Star experience- both in commitment to a team, but also in heightening yout skill levels! Teams still compete, but they will not travel extensively to competitions like a full-travel, team would, nor do they attend as many competitions. BTC’s prep season is also shorter than a normal All Star program, which usually runs 11-12 months out of the year. The primary difference between prep and full-travel is the overall program cost!

Our 8-month program is geared toward athletes who wish to learn the importance of team work, compete at local and semi-local events, and most of all, want to increase their skills while gaining confidence in their abilities! At BTC, there is a strong emphasis on skill progression and an increased drive to move forward with the sport. Athletes do not need prior experience in cheer to be placed on a team, as we welcome all skill levels! But all athletes must come with a willingness to learn and a passion to excel!


What is the training like for BTC's Prep teams? 
 We train our prep athletes the exact same way we would train a full travel, full year, fully competitive cheer team. We do not hold back when it comes to training just because this is a slimmed down program. A high level of commitment is needed to be on one of our teams. You should anticipate practicing twice a week - during competition weeks we will hold extended or extra practices. We   expect athletes to practice outside of gym hours, as well. All additional tumbling classes are offered at 50% off!!! As well as, FREE weekly open gyms all season long!!!
We provide you with the access to training and tools necessary to progress as an athlete, we expect our members to take full advantage of that!
