WHAT IS DCA?
DCA stands for DuPage Competitive Allstars which is the competitive team branch of DuPage Cheer & Power Tumbling. We have several all star cheer teams (both full and short season teams) as well as a power tumbling and trampoline team that competes. Many people in the community refer to the gym as “DCA” and this has become our nickname but the team aspect of DCA is different than the majority of what we do here at DuPage Cheer & Power Tumbling which is teach kids how to tumble!
If you are interested in cheering for an allstar team, DCA Cheer is the BEST all star program around. We staff our teams with professional, certified coaches who are passionate about all star cheer. We have several full season teams that run June – April with practices and choreography starting in the summer. These teams compete at 8-10 competitions throughout the season with the majority of them being in the chicagoland area. We do travel with our full season teams to a few out of state competitions which really encourages team bonding, parent bonding and is really a lot of fun for the girls to compete against more national teams. Practices run between 8-10 hours a week and includes tumbling, stretch classes and team practices. Cheer is a big commitment for athletes as well as families and the idea of full season all star cheer should be discussed as a family to ensure you can commit both financially as well as time to the entire season. Try outs usually happen in April but we reserve the right to add athletes to teams through the year if we see fit.
SHORT SEASON CHEER
Short season refers to the December – April season and is a great option for the girl who loves to cheer on her recreational team in the fall but wants to continue to increase her skills and experience what all star cheer is all about in the winter and spring. Our short season teams start in early December after IRCA state and compete at 3-4 competitions with one competition out of state. Athletes usually dedicate about 6 hours a week for practices and tumbling. If you are interested in being evaluated for our short season program, please call the gym at 630-588-9000 to schedule an evaluation. We do evaluations throughout the year but will hold a final call try out in early December if needed.
