With a combined total of over 25 years in the All Star cheerleading industry, the staff at Diamonds All Stars are prepared to lead All Star athletes to greatness.
"I get asked all the time “Why Diamonds All Stars?” Well, it’s because Brooklynn has never walked in and felt like a number, or an after thought, because she doesn’t have a certain skill set. She walks into her gym and it’s like her second home. She’s been cheering here for three years but tumbling here for seven. When she decided to make the commitment to All Star Cheer, there was zero question about where she wanted to be and who she was going to compete for. Noel, Dylan, Keleigh, and Allen look for each athlete's strengths and play them up. They take the time to find out what each kid excels at and then make them shine. They push each athlete to do their best, to be their best. They fight for their teams when someone does them wrong and celebrate their success. The parents look out for each other’s kids - I know that if I am running late or missing something, another parent will make sure my daughter is taken care of. And the friendships my daughter has made are ones that I’m sure will last a long time. We can’t imagine being anywhere else."
