What Are HYPE Teams?
HYPE Teams are very much like Traditional-Allstar Teams but generally start later in the season and require less time and financial commitment. These teams practice and compete 6 months out of the year and only do a few competitions, which are often times local. This enables us to keep costs lower for HYPE Teams while athletes are often still undecided if Full Travel All Star Cheer is truly for them.
Why HYPE Teams?
United Elite is committed to offering competitive cheerleading for ALL children, no matter the age or experience level. Our half season program provides an EXCITING all-star experience at an affordable price and low commitment level.
Routine Length: The Cheer routines max out at 2:30 (2 Minutes & 30 seconds) the same as traditional All-star Cheer. Elements in the routine include Standing Tumbling, Running Tumbling, Jumps, Stunts, Pyramid, Baskets (Levels 2-5), & Dance.
Tumbling Requirements: There are NO tumbling requirements to make our half season teams, since athletes can compete at Level 1, which requires minimal tumbling skills such as (Forward Rolls, Cart-wheels, Back walkovers etc.) or compete up to level 3 which requires intermediate level tumbling skills such as (Back Handsprings, Tucks, & Front Handsprings etc.) The tumbling category is separated into standing and running tumbling on the score sheet.
Progression: United Elite is committed to teaching skills, training them, and building on fundamentals throughout the Season. In addition, how we create teams allows for a calm and safe progression versus stressing out over “chasing” a certain level or skill.
Competition Info: At 1 day competitions, our HYPE Teams will only compete on Saturday. At the 2-days competition, our HYPE Teams will compete two times (once on Saturday & once on Sunday).
Local Competitions: Families typically drive to these competitions and incur a minimal cost on the day(s) of competition. (Lexington, KY / Louisville, KY / Cincinnati, Ohio)
