Lessons at WILD All-Star Cheerleading Go Far Beyond the Mat

While some families register their children for classes at WILD All-Star Cheerleading in Orchard Park to learn the latest cheerleading, gymnastic and dance techniques, it’s the underlying lessons in self-confidence, teamwork, personal responsibility, respect, discipline, social responsibility and family that are providing skills that will last a lifetime.

“While we do our best to offer opportunities to meet the needs of every student that comes through our door, we also get to know each individual and help them set and reach goals, learn the value of commitment and teamwork, and ultimately see their dreams become a reality,” said Rebekah Stiller, WILD co-owner and co-founder. “Our ultimate goal is to create champions both on and off the mat!”
