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!

Local pre-team spring session starts January 8th! Spring pre-team runs the week of January 8th - May 31st. Pre-team is for athletes 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 1 in-house workshop and 1 in-house meet.  This is a fun and stress-free program as athletes learn what competitive tumbling and trampoline is all about. More info on pre-team for spring session HERE

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. 

Travel team will be taking new athletes through September. Interested? Give us a call 630-588-9000.

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.
