Special Needs Cheer “Precious Gems Program”
The Precious Gems of ACX Diamonds are in their 6th season as a special needs cheer team. This team is comprised of athletes ages 5 and above of varying abilities. We accept children of all abilities and levels of functioning.
The team practices once per week for one (1) hour sessions running from September-March. During practices they work on fine and gross motor skills, self-esteem, team interactions and language skills through activities aimed at developing a comprehensive cheer routine. The team learns how to preform jumps, motions, dance, stunts, pyramid and tumbling. The routine is tailored to the abilities of each individual athlete so that all athletes can participate to the full extent of their abilities.
Each athlete is assigned a ‘buddy’ athlete from within our competitive cheer program to help them learn the routine and improve their skills.
