2017-2018 All Star Prep Teams are Now Forming!
Want to compete in the sport of All Star Cheer, but also want less time and/or financial commitment than a traditional all star team?

Our All Star Prep Teams will have one two-hour team practice, plus a tumbling class each week. The teams will learn a competitive cheer routine which includes tumbling, jumping, dance, and stunting. Our All Star Prep Teams will compete at four local competitions in the Prep divisions giving our athletes valuable experience performing in front of nationally known judges and thousands of spectators increasing their confidence and skills throughout the year!

Welcome Premier Cheer Academy to the Champion Family for Season 20!
We have exciting news about our upcoming 20th season! Please read the letter from our founder and co-owner, Jennifer Graham, below:
To the Families of Champion Cheer and Premier Cheer Academy,
Prior to February 16th, 2015, in spite of owning cheer gyms less than thirty minutes apart and having many mutual friends, my husband John and I did not know Ryan and Caitlin Sutphin, owners of Premier Cheer Academy in Justin. But on the evening of the 16th, our lives were instantaneously bonded together when Ryan, who is a Firefighter Medic with the Grapevine Fire Department, stopped to render aid to my husband and three of our children at the scene of our car accident that occurred near PCA. Ryan had left their gym just a bit later than usual and consequently passed by the accident right after it occurred. Ryan was very instrumental in saving the life of our son, Jacob, and provided great comfort to John on scene. Ryan is the one who administered Jacob’s IV, who slowed the bleeding on his face, who splinted his arm, who got him on the backboard and who helped extricate him from the car. When I arrived on scene, just as Jacob’s medical helicopter took flight, Ryan is the one who updated me on all of my family’s injuries. Neither of us knew of the other’s connection to the cheer world until the day after the accident when mutual friends and our coworkers realized the connection. At that point, it was clear that God was in the details in a very big way – bigger than anyone could have imagined. Not only was Ryan right where he needed to be to meet our incredible needs at the accident scene, but also two cheer gym families were bonded together like never before.
In the months following the accident, as we began to get to know one another better, it became clear to all of us that the meeting orchestrated on the evening of the accident was just the beginning… It became clear that our two cheer families were meant to become one. With similar values and philosophies and with lots of history and connections between our staffs, we knew that our past and present situations were pointing to an amazing future together. So, just before Thanksgiving, the Sutphins, my co-owner James Johnson, and I agreed to terms for Premier Cheer Academy to become part of the Champion Family bringing two cheer families together under one name.
Beginning May 1st, 2016, Premier’s Justin location will begin operating as the second location of Champion Cheer. There will be minimal changes to the current PCA staff. Caitlin will remain on as Gym Director. And, although Ryan is excited to put even more focus on his career with the Grapevine Fire Department, he will most definitely still be around the gym. Champion Coach Jake Compston will also serve as a Gym Director and Head Coach at the Justin location while maintaining some responsibilities in Southlake. The Justin location will continue to have All Star teams, Prep teams, classes, birthday parties and private lessons. The Justin teams will continue to compete in Division 2/Small Gym at competitions. It is our goal to keep the same small gym feel that the location loves while being a part of the incredible Champion Family enjoying shared events like CCA Super Camp and Pine Cove.
On behalf of James and the rest of the Champion staff, I want to welcome Caitlin and Ryan and the Premier staff, athletes and families into the Champion Family with open arms! We are embarking on a great, new adventure together, and we can’t wait to get to know everyone!
Cheers to our future together!
PS As an example of the many things that were tied together, check out this YouTube VIDEO of a news story which aired after the accident. Much of it was filmed inside of PCA, and Premier Coach Ashley was interviewed. Looking back, we are blown away by how this has all been stitched together piece by piece! We can’t wait to see the rest of the story unfold!
