ICE ®All-Stars - Barrington, IL

All-Star Teams

ICE teams consistently finish at the top in local and national competitions and our Level 5 Worlds teams place in the illustrious Top Ten at the USASF Cheerleading World Championships year after year. ICE has made appearances on/in Cheerleader Magazine, ESPN, Good Morning America, Fox Sports, The Cheer Leader Magazine, and numerous local newspapers, radio, and television stations.

We don’t expect you to join our teams with all the skills you need, we want to help you gain those skills; we can provide the most advanced training for you. There is a team for every skill level. Whether you’re just learning a back handspring, a back tuck, or a full- or whether you’re working to be a Jr. High Cheerleader, a High School Cheerleader, or even to go on to College Cheerleading- ICE All-Stars is the place for YOU.

Tryout Criteria

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.

The try out process is very casual and fun. The athletes demonstrate Jumps, Tumbling Skills, and possible Stunting. 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 ICE teams are built to compete at a high level.
