Legion of All-Stars specializes in all-star, recreation, and school cheerleading instruction, team and recreation gymnastics, tumbling classes and more. Located in Griffin, Georgia, we offer a variety of classes for all ages and skill levels. LOA’s mission is to bring out the champion in every athlete we train; our vision is to be our community’s premier training facility, athlete-focused and operating with character and integrity.
During the 2016 / 2017 competitive cheerleading season, LOA’s teams enjoyed 15 national and division championships. Three teams won D2 Summit bids at competitions and traveled to Orlando to compete against the best of the best. Our Youth 2 team earned their way to the finals and were named #1 in Georgia and #7 in the nation in their division. It’s fun to win and we admit our competitive spirit, but winning competitions isn’t our only aim. Our staff is intentional about coaching life skills. We focus on pride and confidence, trust and teamwork, commitment and accountability through disciplined instruction.
We understand that coachable children become employable adults, and we believe that today’s athletes are tomorrow’s leaders. We embrace #DoUntoOthers as our gym-wide no bullying policy and offer a safe zone for our community’s youth. Legion is often referred to as our athletes’ second home. It’s a place where friends become family. We are Legion, and we invite you to join us!
