Gifted and Talented Juniors Program
Superstars is focused on long-term athlete development. We have long-term plans for our current athletes to help them achieve their goals including competing and National, European and World Championship level.
Have you found your child to be physically gifted or talented?
Are they able to learn and replicate movement quickly and acurately?
Do they enjoy physical tasks and games more than other styles of play or learning?
Would you like to foster this innate ability in a caring and supportive environment that allows them to enjoy learning elite level skills at an accelerated pace?
Do you want your child to train with a program that focuses on total personal, mental, social, physical and emotional development?
If you've answered yes, we want to hear from you.
Superstars Elite Juniors
Superstars cheerleading, stunt and tumble are looking for children aged 6-17yrs with exceptional physical learning capabilities for our elite junior program. This is a program that seeks to offer elite level coaching and development opportunities to children who have the potential to be future national champions.
2016 is the first year of the program and we will seek to foster, grow and develop these children and their skills to an elite level within 5 years. Own aim is that by 2021 our elite juniors will have represented their country at least once at an international competition at European or World level.
How is the program different to gymnastics elite track?
Elite Juniors will be expected to attend training aprx. 5hrs per week (depending on age and level of focus) with an additional monthly one-off session of 5hrs. In this short time - we believe we can grow those with natural talent into wonderful athletes while still allowing them time to enjoy other personal, social, intelectual and spiritual activities. We believe that over-specialisation and over-training young children leads to burnout in an unacceptable number of cases. Yes, a handful who train 20+hrs per week may go on to international level gymnastics careers but far more will give it up entirely before age 12.
Superstars Elite Juniors gives children the chance to become an international level athlete within 5yrs while still having a well-rounded life.
How much does it cost?
Fees vary depending on the exact classes/teams each athlete is invited to join and the competitions they attend. Elite athletes are commiting to a much more intense training schedule and fees are in line with this as you would expect.
