CheerForce also offers instruction to our local youth football cheerleading teams as well as high school cheer teams. If you have a need, we will find an answer!
CheerForce began in Simi Valley with two teams, and as with many cheer programs, practiced in parks and community centers. In the summer of 2002, we moved into our first 2,500 sq-ft gym with three teams. SInce then we've expanded to now 6 locations across Southern California stretching from San Diego to Ventura.
As we now head into our 13th season, we continue to offer competitive cheer teams, tumbling classes, introductory cheer classes, cheer camps, & private lessons. CheerForce is not just about cheerleading, but about creating an experience your child will never forget.

According to the President’s Council of Physical Fitness and Sports:
- Regular physical activity in adolescence can reduce girls’ risk for obesity and hyperlipidemia (high levels of fat in the blood), which in turn have been known to be associated with lower adult onset of coronary heart disease and certain cancers.
- Regular physical activity can also helps girls build greater peak bone mass, thereby reducing the adult risk for osteoporosis.
- Exercise and sport participation can enhance mental health by offering adolescent girls positive feelings about body, image, improved self-esteem, tangible experiences of success and increase self-confidence.
- Sports are an educational asset in girls’ lives. Research findings show that many high school female athletes report higher grades and standardized test scores and lower dropout rates, and are more likely to go to college than their non-athletic counterparts.
- Physical activity is an effective tool for reducing the symptoms of stress and depression among girls.
According to the Trinity Center for Women and Girls in Sports:
- Girls who participate in sports are less likely to get involved with drugs, less likely to become pregnant and more likely to graduate from high school than those who do not play sports.
- Women who are student athletes graduate at significantly higher rates (69 percent) than female students generally (58 percent).
- Half of all girls who participate in sports experience higher than average levels of self-esteem and less depression.
- Women who were active in sports as girls, feel greater confidence, self-esteem and pride in their physical and social selves than those who were sedentary as kids.
Although many of these studies focused on adolescent, high school, collegiate athletes, if young girls fail to play in their younger years, it is unlikely they will be able to compete at these higher levels because of lack of experience and skill. So, it is important that parents and girls begin thinking about playing sports at age 6 or 7yr.
