Come see why our dedicated athletes experience rapid growth. See why our Small Division Program has taking titles against large programs and teams twice our size.

We don’t claim to be perfect, we have our high’s and our low’s. But, we have big high’s (like taking 1st place at Nationals hosted by USA Varsity Jamsport and more) when ALL Athletes are focused, dedicated, hardworking, make practices, stretch daily and focus on being the best they can be on the mats. That is the formula for #success

High School Cheerleading and Dance Tryout Season in Full Swing

2 May

There will be tears of joy and tears of sadness. It’s the nature of try out season. Not everyone can make every team. But don’t shed tears too long, just because you didn’t make your school cheer or dance team doesn’t have to be the end of your dream of being a cheerleader or dancer.

Every year, RAW Allstars, has a young lady or gentlemen walk into the gym with stories of how their school didn’t think they were good enough to be on their school team.

With open arms, we accept every athlete. RAW’s first full season was in 2012 and our team was filled with athletes who were told they were not good enough to be on their schools cheer or dance team. By season’s end 98% of these athletes finished their season with National Championship Jackets. Not bad for a group of kids who weren’t good enough for the school team!

The tradition of National Title Winners continued, 2012, 2013, 2015 we welcomed National Championship titles and Grand Championship Titles as well as a bid to Worlds.

We say this not to promote our Allstars Program, but to let all of you who did not make your school cheer or dance team know that you have other options. You don’t have to join RAW Allstars but you should look into an allstars program in your state and see what options you have.

As you can imagine, after winning National Championship titles all our kids went to their next school year tryouts and made the team with flying colors. These athletes remained with RAW and enjoyed th perks of Allstars and School Cheer.

Don’t give you there are options. If your in the San Francisco Fremont San Jose Bay Area consider calling RAW Elite Allstars. We look forward to you joining our team – 510-992-6811

The Commitment Wall

8 Jan

Commitment RAW Allstars


Every athlete has that day when they say “Forget this. I can’t do this”. Actually almost everyone has a day like this a some point. Coaches, Parents, Athletes. It’s easy to be loyal to your sport, college, your family when things are going great. But when the mood is gone, when your in pain and don’t feel like keeping on – reflect on this. Everyone hits a wall, but its up to you to climb over it.


Bay Area Competition Cheerleading Fremont

30 Dec

Congrats to RAW Elite Allstars Cheerleading and Mission San Jose Fremont Student Delaine for winning the title of All-American Cheerleading and the much sought after invitation to perform at the All-American Half Time show in Florida.

RAW Elite Allstars, a bay area based competitive allstars cheer and dance program, celebrated the summer with more than 80% of all it’s athlete’s winning the All-American Title. This title comes with many invitations to events like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, London New Years Parade or the Capital One Pro Bowl Florida half-time show.

RAW is excited that Captain Delaine will be one of the many All-American’s enjoying a week of red carpet treatment while visiting Disney World Florida, Universal Studios and more. This is an opportunity so few cheerleaders and dancers get the honor of enjoying and we are proud our very own member is among them.

Congrats Delaine, the title is well earned!


Congratulations to Delaine for Landing her Standing Back Tuck

True Level Athlete…What does that mean?

17 Aug

Today was an interesting day. An athlete from another program walked in to find out more about RAW Alllstars. She was a great young lady, with lots of energy and a positive attitude (Something that is KEY in our program). 

After speaking with her, the coaches learned that she had been in Allstars for 10 years. – Just so you know, that is AWESOME, when a coach hears this. In addition she had done a variety of cheerleading teams: school, youth while doing Allstars. 

Our coaches couldn’t wait to see her on the mats. Now, just to let you know, we test every on Foam Based mats. Why? Foam mats tell a coach very quickly how much power an athlete really has. The springs are great, but the foam base mats can teach you a lot about an athlete. 

The coach and the cheerleader venture to the mats to start assessments. First, jumps. WOW this girl could fly. Now for tumbling – this is where WOW went to ouch. After 10 years of Allstars the athlete had not yet learned how to do a back walkover – front walkover, any of the basic level 1 tumbling. Back handsprings were also not a strength. The athlete was unable to demonstrate the basic technique of a Back handspring. Tuck – No, no tuck either. This was concerning as a coach, who could possibly pay all that money for 10 years of Allstars and not have the basic tumbling skills? 

After talking to the Athlete and checking with another program, the coach learned that she was actually originally from a Level 3 team being offered Level 4. Our coach informed the athlete that there was no way that our program could offer anything more than Level 1 while training with Level 2 to land the basic skills needed. I know this was not what she wanted to hear, but the reality was, she needed to know the basics before she could move forward. Our coach felt like anything above Level 2 would be unsafe for her and her team.  

Why are we talking about this? Well, its important for parents to know what they should expect from their program. It doesn’t matter how many trampolines, foam pits or spring boards a gym has if your athlete isn’t learning the most basic skills. The parent in question had no ideal that her athlete should have accomplished more tumbling skills in the last 10 years. 

RAW Allstars focuses on True Level Athlete’s. That means, every athlete will learn every skilled required of them while on Level 1, 2, 3, etc.  If athletes are on level 1, they learn both Level 1 and Level 2 skills in hopes that they can master and move up for the next season. The truth is not all athletes will progress at the same rate. Some will take a few years to move up a level, while others move up each year (or at least it seems that way).  Being a true level athlete also eliminates surprises. You will never walk into another program after being with RAW and not know how to do the skills of the level you were currently on. Every year we get kids from other programs who are unable to land a skill to make their High School or College Team. They come to us to perfect the skills their current program hasn’t taught them. As a coach, its a nice compliment when someone from another program comes to us for help (specially when they are still with their current Allstars program). But, parents, if you are paying $150 plus a month for 10 years and your child still hasn’t mastered the basics. You need to speak up. Don’t let ANY program waste your child’s time or your money. It’s not fair to you, it’s not fair to the child who can’t make her college team because she wasn’t trained properly for it, it’s just not fair. 

Athlete’s and parents, check in your progress. Make sure you are working towards the next level in every aspect of Allstars (tumbling, stunting, dance, showmanship). Stand up for your training. Your time is valuable and you deserve the best your program has to offer. When looking for a program, do not look for the cutest, tiniest outfits or the gym with the most kids, or someone who has 5 fiberglass spring board floors. Go to a program that has athletes who excel, those who have a proven track record for assisting kids in development, not one that has kids on Level 2 for 5 years. Look for a program that will help you grow as an athlete, performer, leader and person.
