Welcome to Carolina Crossfire Cheer

Carolina Crossfire Cheer was established in 2009. Our mission is to enrich the lives of young people through the sport of cheerleading, acrobatics, and tumbling. Our daily goal is to instill in our athletes the values of commitment, self-confidence, leadership, and hard work as they reach toward attaining their personal best in all endeavors. 

Our coaches have over 40 years of combined experience in school and all-star cheerleading, gymnastics, acrobatics, and dance.
