What is Velocity Cheer Gym?
We are a cheer and tumbling gym in Antioch, CA. We train athletes of ALL levels and ages in cheer, and tumbling. We offer competitive cheer teams that compete all over Northern and Southern California. We also have recreational tumbling and cheer classes. We also do custom camps and choreography for youth and high school cheer squads.
How long has Velocity Cheer Gym been in business?
We are very proud to say that Velocity Cheer Gym has been around since 2013, but the owner and coaches have been in the industry for over 20 years.
For whom do your teams cheer?
Velocity teams do NOT cheer for a team; they are ON a competitive team and ranked against other cheer teams from gyms similar to Velocity. This is the cheerleading you often see showcased on ESPN. Our sport is extremely athletic and skill based. Cheerleading competitions are held all over the United States; Velocity teams compete primarily in Northern and Southern California.
What ages can my child start tumbling and cheer classes?
At Velocity, tumbling classes start as young as three. Children MUST be potty trained and be able to separate from parents. Our all-star cheer teams range from ages 3-18 years old.
How are tumbling classes at Velocity Cheer Gym different from gymnastic classes?
Tumbling classes at Velocity revolve strictly around floor work. Tumbling training involves trampolines, spring floors and various mats. Athletes begin by learning forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, and progress to back handsprings, tucks, and full twisting lay-outs.
We’re excited to meet you and welcome you into the Velocity Family.
Please call (925) 354-0919, We’ll schedule you for a FREE class and tour of our facility and a meeting with one of our awesome coaches to help you determine which program is right for your child.
We are confident that once you see our facility and meet our coaches and athletes, you’ll know that you’ve found what you’ve been looking for!
The athletes at VELOCITY strive for success and work very hard as a team to accomplish their goals. Drama is left at the door!
Every coach knows every athlete’s name even if they are on a different team. Your child is not viewed as a number, but rather a very important member of a family.
VELOCITY parents are “stars in the stands” and second to none. One would never know who has a child on one team and who has one on the other team. Thunderous chants, cheers, and applause fill the arena when each team performs because every parent is up on their feet for every child.
Every coach at VELOCITY is a teacher. Like any strong educator, we push our athletes to their fullest potential while recognizing and accommodating their diverse needs.
Located in Antioch, VELOCITY is centrally located just minutes from Oakley and Brentwood. Velocity also has members from Pittsburg, Bay Point and Concord. Located right off Hwy 4 down east 18th Velocity is easy to find.
Immediately after each competition’s award ceremony, coaches, team members, and parents convene for our own “awards ceremony”. Coaches address the team and review the day’s performances and outcomes. Any important news or information is shared at that time, too.
At the end of each season, we have an awards banquet to recognize each cheerleader, the coaches, gymnastics trainers, and parents. This is a celebration of the year’s events that includes all team members and their families.
If you are impressed with winning, then VELOCITY is a great place to be. Over the years, each team has won several local, state, regional, and national titles and grand championship titles. We are also the ONLY gym in the are to have received a D2 Summit bid to Orlando FL. You’ll find that the athletes who graduate from the VELOCITY program are also “winners” in the real world as they prepare for their college careers or for the workforce.
