Founded in 2009, you wouldn’t have recognised the All-Stars back in the day. Armed with a dream, a tiny 40sqm part time gym space and not much else, we were ready to take on the world. We’re now the largest, most competitive program in South Australia and one of the larger programs in the country!
While we’ve changed dramatically over the years, there are few things that haven’t. United by an obsession with cheerleading and a dream to empower young girls, founders Jess and Rachel combined their skills – marketing and teaching – to create a competitive club that puts the fun of cheerleading first.
“We wanted to create a supportive environment where our young athletes could learn, socialise and, most importantly, have a great time as they progress in (what we feel!) is one of the greatest sports in the world.”
As a competitive gym, we love winning. But winning will never get in the way of our vision; to teach, inspire and improve the lives of as many athletes as we can. That means – with the Adelaide All-Stars – your child is as safe and supported as possible.
We’re also constantly looking to improve and reach for the stars – it’s even in the name! Be that our facilities, training, or how we communicate with you, that mentality is part of our lifeblood. So if you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Owner of the Adelaide All Stars and South Australia's top cheerleading coach. For over 9 years, Jess has successfully coached teams and groups to numerous National Championship titles around Australia. With over 50 state titles won, Jess knows how to train her teams to perform fabulously- no matter their level. Jess' approach to coaching is highly focused and driven, but she always has time for a laugh and fun at training. You'll almost certainly get some extra brownie points from Jess for bringing a puppy in to visit!

We love our training facilities, and we know your child will, too. Our gym is fully-equipped to support our young athletes as they improve in the world of cheerleading.

We also offer have a parent lounge, athlete area, kitchenette, bathrooms and our very own pro-shop where you can purchase anything you might need for a cheerleading season!

Our Nailsworth facility has South Australia’s largest 9-run sprung floor. This has been a fabulous addition in the training of each of our teams. Highly supportive and springy, our 9-run floor is equivalent to the floors our athletes will be using during competitions. As one of the few SA clubs with a full size competition floor, this gives us a unique advantage – in both training and competing.
