DCA Team Tracks for T&T Athletes 2023-2024 Season

T&T is short for Tumbling and Trampoline and we do it all here at DuPage Cheer & Power Tumbling.  We have two tracks for those who love everything tumbling and trampoline and depending on your commitment, availability and skill, can determine which track is best for you! Check out team track info HERE!

We will have a local pre-team option with a fall and spring session for those who are new to the sport and looking for a less regimented option than our travel team. The local team will practice 2x a week and attend 2-4 local (up to 1 hour away) meets or events which will be fun and stress-free as athletes learn what competitive tumbling and trampoline is all about. 

The travel team will start in June and runs a full year through May of 2024 with practices 3-5x a week depending on level and can plan on 5-6 travel competitions (3-5 hours away) with a more regimented program working all three events looking to advance skills and routines. Many of our travel athletes are working towards Nationals and international competitions so the sky is the limit with the travel team. 

After April 16th we will be inviting people to come try a team practice to see if they are interested in either track of team.  If you are interested, give us a call and we will schedule a tryout.  We will have team packets available after April 17th at the desk (we do not email or post online- must come in person). 

Questions before team tryouts, please give us a call!!!  630-588-9000. 

Here are some commonly asked questions and basic information about our T&T team!

DCA Cheer Program: Short Season Will Be Back in 2024! Welcome to the world of allstar cheer! We run our cheer program from mid-December through the end of April/beginning of May. DCA's allstar program is for those athletes who love cheer and want to learn and experience allstar cheer. We have teams for the beginner who is new to cheer and wants to learn skills in a fun and positive environment to the experienced prep and elite cheerleader who is already in love with the sport and is looking to further their individual skills in a more committed program.

After April our program will be over for this season. We do not have teams in the summer/fall as we shift gears to supporting our local recreational teams with stunt clinics, camps and choreography as well as still offer all our amazing tumbling classes. Our short season cheer information for 2024 will be out in October 2023 with tryouts happening early December 2023 for the January - May 2024 season so check back in the fall for the preliminary info.

DCA has a special needs team called BLITZ, and they are awesome. This team has been running since 2012, and many of the original girls are still on the team today! We meet Saturday afternoons during the school year. Times vary each school year so please call, and you can come to watch or participate in practice to see if this is something your child is interested in doing. Athletes learn cheer moves, dances, a special DCA cheer, and participate in around 3–4 competitions/performances each year. The only cost to participate in BLITZ is a uniform fee which we try very hard to keep reasonable but still match our other cheer program's uniforms. We work with every ability, and everyone is welcome on the team. BLITZ is part of our cheer family and participates in all team events like our end of season banquet.  Interested in finding out more about our special needs team, or know someone who would LOVE to be part of this team? Give us a call at 630-588-9000.
