Local cheer squads are available for children in grades K-3. No travel is required for local team members since nearly all competitions attended are in Indiana. Practice for these teams comprises 2.5 to 3 hours per week. Weekend and/or additional practices are very rarely required and would only occur during the school year.
Indiana Elite also offers an introductory noncompetitive cheer team, our TINY TERRIERS, for preschoolers through 1st graders. The team practices one evening per week for 1 1/2 hours in preparation for 4-5 local performances during the season.
For our very young cheerleaders, we offer a noncompetitive team called our POUND PUPPIES for 2 to 4 year olds. This team focuses mainly on tumbling. Cheer is incorporated later in the season in preparation for one performance in April.
