Lakeland tumbling

The Central Florida Athletics cheerleading program offers athletes a challenging physical environment while learning valuable lessons like discipline, teamwork, integrity, and self-worth. We have world class coaching for athletes 3 and up, and at any level.  The first timer can start with our FUNdamentals program to learn the basics, or go straight to one of our All-Star teams.  If your athlete wants a challenge they can come for one of our Prep teams or be evaluated for one our National Champion Elite All-Star teams. While competitive cheer can often be expensive, CFA works hard to provide fundraising opportunities to offset costs. Plus everyone who tries out will make a team!

Our certified and credentialed staff has over 50 years of coaching experience, and are committed to maintaining a fun and positive atmosphere for our gymnasts.
