High School Prep Competition Teams
ELITE CHEER ATHLETICS
Check out our NEW High School Prep Program!
Athletes will learn new and innovative stunts, tumbling, jumps, pom and sign work, sideline cheers, dance and most importantly, how lead and entertain a crowd! Our new program will help bridge the gap from youth athlete to high school athlete.
At Elite, we strive to give athletes a positive environment where they feel comfortable and can do their best. We encourage respect, commitment and confidence in each athlete our staff interacts with. We help each athlete succeed through teamwork, goal setting and sportsmanship by encouragement and determination.
Utah High School Prep Cheer is a competitive sport that performs with an emphasis on crowd leading. Teams are made up of athletes that perform a routine for a panel of judges to be scored against other competitive teams. The routine is made up of stunts and pyramids, jumps, tumbling, cheer/crowd leading and dance sections.
Teams are divided by age and skill level. There is a team for everyone; any age, skill level- no experience required!
Utah High School Prep was created for young athletes to train and prepare to compete at the high school level. NFHS rules and regulations are followed maintaining safety guidelines to provide the safest possible environment for athletes to train and compete. The goal of Utah High School Prep is to produce quality cheer competitions for young athletes. The focus of the competitions will be on the athletes and their best interests. Quality judging, safety enforcement, and a good educational experience will be the essence of our events.
Age Divisions (Ages are averaged)
- Tiny: 4-6 years old

Level refers to the difficulty of stunts and tumbling that a team can safely perform. Levels are determined by tumbling and stunting skills set by NFHS and the Utah High School Prep program.
