2023-2024 Teams - Spots Available!

Did you miss our 2023-2024 Season Tryouts at ECE Central in Lancaster, MA? We still have spaces open on our teams! Let's set up a private evaluation:


Our full-year program offers different tiers including non-travel, limited travel and Elite (travel) teams. Please note that we are not able to form teams of every tier for every age group and we cannot guarantee which level teams we will have until after we complete tryouts. 

Team placement is based on age and skill level according to the USASF guidelines levels 1-6. You do NOT need gymnastics skills to be placed on a team.  Try-outs are an assessment of current skill levels.  All cheerleaders have an opportunity to advance teams during the season if their skill level improves throughout the year and as team needs allow. 

Athletes interested in the Summer Fundamentals program or the Tiny program do not need to attend team placements, only complete online registration form and make payment. 


Tiny athletes must have been born between January 1, 2016 and June 1, 2020.

NO TRYOUT REQUIRED, registration only! Registration is open until 5/31/23. 

We offer two teams in our Tiny Program, dependent on age and experience. The team(s) practice once per week in the summer (June-August), twice per week September-April, and compete at 4-5 local events

Our Fundamentals program is designed to give athletes the opportunity to attend a regular, weekly practice focused on the primary areas of cheerleading such as jumps, tumbling, dance, and performance.

NO TRYOUT REQUIRED! Athletes need only register by 5/31/23. 

Weekly practice times will be determined by late May. Practices will be held for 10 weeks, June-August.

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.
