ABOUT ECE CENTRAL

ECE Central is a family-owned and operated cheerleading and tumbling school. We offer classes and competitive teams for boys and girls of all ages and skill levels.

Too often, parents are forced to choose between enrolling their child in a cheer program that has high family values and teaches good character OR placing their child in a national caliber gym with excellent technical training and elite level choreography. You CAN have BOTH! ECE Central offers traditional values, positive role models, a family atmosphere, AND national recognition, incredible training and innovative choreography. We know that family is the cornerstone of every child’s character! Strong families make our athletes and our program better!

Family has always been at the center of our cheer philosophy: from the development of our program by three sisters, to our belief that each student is an extension of our “family”, and, nine years ago, becoming a member of the ECE group. We are passionate about sharing our love of the sport of cheerleading and we endeavor to provide a safe and fun experience to each of our students. Our goal is to help each student develop their full potential as an athlete while teaching them the importance of teamwork, commitment, and friendship.

Our success is not only measured by the number of banners and trophies on the wall, but by what each athlete takes from their experience here.
