We have two options for your cheerleading needs.
Elevate is our recreational program that is directed by Kaela Wiig, Briar Cliff University Cheer Coach. Girls and boys in our rec class learn basic cheer technique, jumps, small stunts and routines to music. This class gives them everything they need to know should they choose to progress into our competitive program, Apex Pinnacle.
Apex is our competitive team directed by Maci Heimsoth and Kayla Inlay, both former competitive cheerleaders at Morningside College. Team try-outs are held in the late spring to invite athletes to join Apex for their winter-spring competitive season. These teams compete throughout the regional area complete with professional uniforms, big stunts and lots of high energy.
We offer a youth team, Apex Pinnacle, for the younger rah rahs and a senior team, Apex Predator, for our older gang.
What does a cheer competition look like, you ask? Check out ESPN sometime and you’ll get a glimpse into this super fun sport!
