All children benefit from classes and participation in cheer and tumbling classes. You have done a terrific job of parenting by getting your child interested in these educational sports. Many of the benefits of cheer and tumbling classes are related to learning more important developmental areas that will help your child become a better student and young adult. Cheer and tumbling programs are not solely about creating high-level athletes, there are so many more important areas to consider. All children, regardless of ability, should stay in cheer and tumbling classes for 3 – 5 years, if not longer, to get the full benefit of what their sport teaches.
Through the challenge of learning tumbling and cheerleading skills, the students gain confidence with each step that they take. For example, with tumbling, skills on the floor mats and with faith in others, helps them gain confidence in their own abilities. This improved self-confidence will transfer to other areas of their lives including school.
Tumbling and cheerleading instruction helps develop better coordination and body movement. For the young child, a great deal of their self confidence comes from how coordinated they are because their “world” is so physical rather than mental. Tumbling and Cheerleading improves coordination.
Hard Work Ethic
Tumbling and Cheerleading are tough sports. The best thing about it is that the kids have to earn the skills; we just can’t give them to them. This hard work shows them that the more they work the more they learn. What a great lesson. You want your children to have a “hard work ethic,” don’t you?
My name is Rachel Forrest. I’ve been cheering or have been involved in cheer for about 6 years and I love every part of it! I love working with kids and teaching them new tricks. Cheerleading requires a lot of focus and skill and I think it’s so awesome. I’m so passionate about what I do and the kids I work with! I love the adrenaline that going out onto the mat brings.
I am also cpr certified and an official USASF certified coach!
My name is Amanda Reeve. It has always been a dream of mine to open my own cheerleading gym. I believe cheerleading teaches children how to be a team player and also instills leadership skills and confidence. I have been involved in the cheerleading industry for more than 10 years and have coached children ranging from elementary school age to high school cheerleaders. As a coach, my athletes have competed at the state and national levels. I am very passionate about what I do because I truly do love coaching cheer and helping people improve on their cheerleading skills. I look forward to working with you and your children to create a fun competitive environment.
I am CPR and First Aid certified, as well as a member of USASF. I am credentialed in All-Star cheerleading Levels 1-4 and in tumbling.
Hi, my name is Caitlyn Rosenberg and I am a Sophomore studying Communication Studies at Moorpark College. I started out as a dancer from the age of 8-13 when I discovered Allstar Cheerleading. I competed in levels 1-4 at a local Allstar gym over a 5 year period and was a captain of the stunt team at Thousand Oaks High School. My Allstar team went on to win Grand Champions for level 3 at a UCA competition in Florida. Although this will be my first time coaching Cheer, I’ve had the opportunity to work for Afterschool programs for 2+ years with whom I judged Sharp cheer and Dance competitions. Cheerleading was the single most positive experience I had growing up, and it has always been my dream to coach. I am very excited and honored to be able to work with the young athletes at Impact and hope to bring them the same positive experience and life lessons I had during my cheer career. I am also USASF certified.

My name is Karlie Healy and I am 21 years old. I am currently attending Moorpark college working on my undergraduate degree. I started my Allstar cheer career at Impact in 2014 after doing middle cheer and being a Varsity cheerleader at El Camino High School. After aging out of the program in 2017, I was given this great opportunity to teach kids what I love to do. This gym is truly a family and I love that I continue to be a part of it year after year.
