Recreational

Ignite the fire.

TNT Cheer offers recreational cheer and tumbling programs. These classes strengthen overall skills and conditioning. Our recreational program is designed for those who are interested in competitive cheerleading without the commitment, for those preparing for junior high/high school cheer, and for those who are looking to simply be a cheerleader. Plus, those who love to dance or want to expand their tumbling skills! All ages, girls and boys are welcome with no experience necessary.

Below are brief descriptions of all of the classes that are offered. This will help in figuring out what class your child will need to be enrolled in. If you still have questions about the classes please contact the office and they will answer any additional questions you might have!
