IMPORTANT Pre-Season Team Evaluations - NEW FOR 2022

For Grades 4th & 5th Grade ONLY

Platinum Cheer is a distinct Super Rec Program where competition and progression are at the forefront of teams.

All PCA teams will be competing at the Super Rec level.  The evaluation is used to determine athlete preparedness for a highly competitive super rec competition team.

Please note, 4-5th grade athletes are NOT evaluated against their peers, these are INDIVIDUAL evaluations for athlete skill progression.  The benefit of Athlete Evaluations are the following: 

  • Progression model to best prepare for tryouts that start in 6th grade and what the expectations are to make a PCA tryout team
  • The model will prepare girls, starting in 3rd grade, to keep up skills and continue progressing in the sport of cheer
