“Before Alli started cheer at JPAC, we had tried multiple activities to capture her interest. Once she began cheer with Coach Alex and Coach Paige, she was hooked! As a mother, who as been around some gym atmospheres, I was concerned that there would be a "cliquey" feeling amongst the kids and parents through this program as well. Much to my surprise, that was not at all the case! All the kids get along as if they were long lost sisters and the parents embraced each other in this new experience.”
