First Class Athletics
2015-2016 Competitive Cheer Season
Age Requirements for the 2015-2016 Competitive Season
Please see below for age eligibility for the 2015-2016 season. Your competition age is your
age as of August 31, 2015. Please bring a copy of your birth certificate and ID for First Class
Athletics to have on file.
Age Groups are as follows:
WORLDS Senior 5: 12-18
Senior Levels 1-5 Restricted: Ages 10+
International Open: 14+
Junior: 14 and under
Youth: 11 and under
Mini: 8 and under
Tiny: 6 and under
Levels
There are 5 levels (for regular teams) this season. The “level” refers to the type of stunts, pyramids, and tumbling
that a team can safely perform. They are numbered from 1 to 5, in increasing difficulty. The level is determined
solely by the coaching staff.
Placement
There may be athletes on any given team that tumble at a different level than the rest of their teammates. We try
to match up the athletes by level as best we can, but please remember that stunting, pyramids, jumps, dance,
motions, and age are huge factors as well. Some will be stronger tumblers than others. Some will contribute more
with stunts than others. We chose our team based on the positions that we need to fill (Bases, flyers, tumblers,
etc.) Every athlete is on the team for a reason — please trust the staff. Our teams have always done very well.
Process
The try out process is very casual and fun! The athletes demonstrate Jumps, Tumbling Skills and Choreography.
They also meet the staff and new friendships are formed. We evaluate the athletes in groups and encourage each
person to do their best!! Everyone is placed on a team no matter what! After tryouts, the staff will pick teams
based on their discretion. Many key elements factor into the decision. Keep in mind all FCA Teams are built to
compete at a high level.
Private Tryout
Sessions are available upon request, and require a $55 fee. For additional information, please write to
