About Us

We would like to thank you for your interest in Ember Cheer Allstars. Since we began our all-star cheerleading program, we have enjoyed increasing success with each passing year.

Ember Cheer has a first-class facility located in York, Pennsylvania.  The York location boasts over 8,000 sq. ft. of cheerleading, tumbling, gymnastics, and parkour equipment.  This location offers a spring floor, in-ground trampoline, resi pits, rod floor, tumble track, and in-ground foam pit.  We are dedicated to offering a professional staff and a well-structured organization.  Our goal is to provide the best training environment for our athletes while teaching them ideals such as teamwork, integrity, work ethic, commitment, and sportsmanship.
The ECA staff understands that we are using the tool of all-star cheerleading to shape and develop our athletes into leaders of their peer groups and leaders of tomorrow. We believe all our athletes have exceptional talents and it is our responsibility to cultivate that talent with our compassion, dedication, and knowledge.  As coaches we take true PRIDE in the growth of our athletes both inside and outside the gym.  Although the coaching staff and training involved are clearly a factor in the success of each team, the PASSION, love, and desire to excel are critical for each cheerleader to achieve their goals.  We pride ourselves in offering the environment to ensure this happens.


All star cheerleading is an exciting sport suitable for the earliest beginner all the way through the most accomplished elite level athlete. All star cheerleading places an emphasis upon a competition “routine” of tumbling, dancing, stunting, jumping and motion techniques in a creative, innovative and challenging fashion. Because we feel that all athletes should have the ability to participate and experience the world of all star cheerleading, Ember Cheer has designed a detailed curriculum that allows any and everyone who is interested in the opportunity to participate in the sport.

The following team options are available:
  •  Full Year Competition Teams (June-May)
  •  Novice Competition Teams (September-May)
  •  Quarter Season Competition Teams (February-May)
Tumbling classes are offered year round with no team commitment required.


We are excited to be expanding our recreational and non-competitive cheerleading offerings. Stay tuned for more information on these programs.
