Carrollton Parks and Recreation offers a variety of classes and lessons in cheerleading and tumbling. Tumbling classes are great for building skills, strength, and flexibility as well as preparing for cheerleading. Cheer classes are great for getting ahead of the game and refining jumps and motions or learning to stunt from an early age. You can register your child online at or by calling (770) 832-1161.

Recreation Cheerleading

Recreation Cheerleading is a great way to introduce the world of sideline cheer to the youth in our community. If your athlete aspires to cheer for their respective school once they come of age, this is the best place to start. They will learn cheers, chants, dance, jumps and the basics of stunting. Athletes have the opportunity to cheer with pom poms, perform at half-time, work as a team member, and experience the excitement of the sideline during game time.
