Bay Area Fremont Stars Cheer Raw Allstars

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

Perfection kicks off the RAW Elite Allstars Expo

15 Jun

RAW Elite Allstars, Bay Area’s 2015 National Championship 1st place winners, spent this past weekend performing an Expo for the people of the Greater Bay Area.

Bay Area Cheer Raw allstarsIt was amazing to watch a select group of our athletes showcase to countless Bay Area residents what it takes to be an allstars athlete.

We were honored to be invited to this special expo and even more excited about how many came by after our show to tell us how impressed they were with our athletes. Not only for their performance, but for their positive attitudes when not performing, the kind manner they treated each other and the audience when they were not performing.

It’s amazing to be a part of a hard working group of athletes. Performance #2 completed for this season, but don’t worry you can still join. Contact http://www.rawtalentselite.com

Why some people don’t tryout for cheerleading

11 May
Sharing a message from one of our favorite coaches Danielle:*tweak a bit for our bay area location
Top ten reasons why people don’t try out for cheer, in no particular order, and our response to show you, excuses are just that, excuses.
#1) I’m too shy.

Being a #cheerleader is perfect for you then! Being on a TEAM, the focus isn’t on any one individual, but rather, the team as a whole. You will find similarities between you and your teammates, and you will start to come out of your shell. You will develop self confidence and become more assertive in cheer, but also in other areas of your life.

#2) “I’m afraid I’ll look like silly”
At some point or another, everyone has looked silly. Coaches do every single day! (True story!) It is important to remember to laugh at ourselves when we are learning new things or even just make mistakes. A good way to remember the important from the not important. Ask yourself, “in 5 years, will it matter that I looked silly for just 5 seconds of my life?” I don’t think so.
#3) Insecurities over body image
PERFECT! We can work on your skills, while at the same time help you reach your goals in a safe, healthy way TOGETHER! The physical training that goes into being a cheerleader include core muscle training, cardio, flexibility, and consistency in training, plus much more, but all while having FUN!!!
#4) “I’m scared to try something new”
I’m scared to look back 20 years from now and say “I wish I had gone for it!” Live for no regrets. Give it an honest attempt, we don’t bite, and will be with you every step of the way!!!
#5) “I won’t know anyone or have any friends there.”
Feel free to bring a friend or two with you, but if you can’t, don’t worry, we have plenty of friends here. Come meet new people, who in just a short amount of time, turn into family.
#6) “I don’t have any experience.”
And you never will if you don’t try. An important thing to remember, even the best of athletes, at some point, they too had no experience. The difference between them and you? They started….. will you?
#7) “I don’t have the skills needed to make the team.”
At Allstars programs, everyone makes a team. We have had kids show up, who have never tumbled a day in their life, and on the first night get a standing tuck, and 2 days later a round off back handspring full. Come by and we will introduce you to some amazing talent. We’ve had athletes who took a bit longer to achieve their skills. The point is, our professional staff will teach you safe, and proper technique. With time, patience, determination, skills can be learned and mastered by anyone.
#8) “It’s too expensive.”
Actually it’s not. We are the Bay Area’s most affordable cheer and dance program, and we fundraise all season long. Participation and attitude are key in fundraising. One mom raised over $1000 to cover her athletes uniforms and competition fees, just from one fundraiser!. If they can do it, so can you!
#9) “Cheerleaders are mean!”
Rude, snotty and less than stellar sportsmanship attitudes are not tolerated in our program. We truly have the sweetest, most genuine people you could ever wish to cheer with.
#10) “I won’t fit in.”
You were made to stand out! With teammates who become more like family to one another, anyone with a positive attitude, and strong work ethic, belongs here!

So, now that we’ve dispelled all the “I cants” its time for you to say “I CAN!” Come be a part of something great and make those friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. This time next year, you’ll wish you had started today! So what are you waiting for? Call Coach Dre today and get started on your adventure with RAW Elite Allstars! 510-992-6811
