Dear Future CCA Family Members,

Welcome to CCA, where we are creating better people, not just better athletes!

Cheerleading has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  I still remember the first cheer I learned from my Aunt as a little girl. (It was actually the first cheer I taught my daughter!)  Growing up in North Carolina and Virginia I was blessed to cheer for amazing programs. I cheered on school teams, competitive teams and in college.  I spent summers teaching summer camps and winters working competitions.  Cheer took me all over the world even attending the Pro Bowl in Hawaii as an All American Cheerleader.   After college, I believed my life as a “cheerleader” was over.  Boy was I wrong….

After moving to Colorado with my family, I realized Colorado was missing something.  I would attend Pop Warner games with my boys and think, “Where are the cheerleaders?”  I knew back home there were ALWAYS more cheerleaders than football players!

I wanted to make a difference with young people, and I wanted to develop a love for Cheerleading in Colorado.  I knew Northern Colorado needed a gym that not only produced great athletes, but great people.

We opened our doors in January of 2013. With over 10,000 sq ft and the perfect location, we began to quickly grow.  It didn’t take long to see that our vision of creating great athletes was a hit in Fort Collins.  We had more kids than we had anticipated and 2 years later began searching for our new gym HOME.

After months of looking for the right facility, we were blessed to open at our new location!  In August we moved into our location on Midpoint Drive and began prepping for our 2014-2015 season.  Our new facility had 15,000 sq t of practice space and a state of the art parent viewing area.  It was everything we dreamed of!  Soon we  implemented our Powerful Words program to help us guide our athletes into becoming amazing people!  Colorado Cheer Academy had it all….great families, great athletes, great coaches, a great facility and an award winning character development program.  We were on TOP!

As we pushed forward, we knew that we needed to merge with another local program in order to provide our clients with the best there was to offer in Cheerleading and Dance.  In February of 2015 we announced our merger with The Cheer and Dance Connection and the Colorado Cheer Academy Wildcats were born!  The merger brought us our Special Needs Team (The Panthers) as well as more coaches and added teams!

We are proud to be the largest program in Northern Colorado.  We offer full year and half year prep teams, as well as dance pom, special needs teams, tumbling classes, private lessons, high school tumbling and custom choreography.  We also specialize in our “Gotta Have It Clinics” which are skill intensive workshops focusing on one skill per session.  We offer classes for all ages and all levels.  This means we are your ONE stop shop in Northern Colorado for all things cheer and dance!

 It’s easy to see why Colorado Cheer Academy is the #1 Cheer facility in Northern Colorado.  Our athletes travel from all over Colorado and Wyoming to be a part of our winning family!
