CheerSport is a fun and safe environment where athletes make lifelong friendships, experience sporting challenge, and take away life skills that transfer into adulthood. CheerSport is a perfect introduction into the fun, glam world of Competitive cheerleading with lower costs, less commitment and maintaining a balance of fun. We take gymnastics, acrobatics, dance and lifting and create a 1 min 30 routine for the athletes to perform at an Auckland competition at the end of the year. Athletes can work their way through the 6 grades with CheerSPORT or choose to transition into one of our Elite competitive teams at the start of a new year to extend their skills.

CheerSPORT is a semi-competitive programme where each athlete learns specific choreography in a routine and each has their own unique position on the team. To ensure the team has the best chance of success and doesn't have setbacks with re-choreographing their routine it's important that athletes stay committed till after their September competition. This programme is a commitment from terms 1-3, with the option of working on progressing their skills in term 4 or moving on into a full competitive team.
Start Date: You can join a CheerSPORT class at anytime during the year if there is available spaces and depending how much of their routine has been choreographed.

"My daughter has been attending Zero Gravity for a term. Her progress and the fact that she ends her training sessions tired, smiling and looking forward to her next session is testament to the skilled, passionate, and kind coached here. Additionally, their organisation and communication skills are superb. I am really impressed."
"Cheer has opened up a whole new learning journey for our daughter. She is focused on improving her skill level and enjoys showing others what she can do. Cheer has helped her grow in self confidence which reflects in other aspects of her life and makes me feel proud. While the Zero Gravity coaches are supportive and well liked they command respect and offer a level of coaching that far exceeds expectation. Although she has been doing Cheer for just a year she is keen to do it long term and the older girls are role models for the younger girls. Thanks Zero Gravity"
"Our experience with Zero Gravity Cheerleading has been amazing from day one. Our girl's confidence since joining a recreational team went from broken to unbreakable when she joined a competition team!! She is an only girl between two brothers and has always been the only girl in her sports teams till we found Zero Gravity. Being a part of Zero Gravity and her team is the closest thing to sisterhood she knows and she absolutely loves it!! Coaches are skilfully talented and amazingly patient - super blessed to be part of the ZG Cheer Family!!"
