Activ8 Athletes was founded in 2018 with one goal in mind: to inspire young athletes.

Since then, we have developed into a highly competitive all star cheer program with multiple teams and passionate coaches. We believe each individual athlete contributes something special to their Activ8 All Stars team and has the potential for growth and success. Our main priority is to help our athletes thrive on and off the mat, and build supportive relationships that will last a lifetime. We hope to become a pillar in our community for the development of youth athletes.
