We’ve loved every minute of our journey
An Idea is Born
The idea for Cheer Factory was actually born in November of 1988, in Texas while sitting in a college classroom. We moved too many times for it to become a reality until Les retired and we settled down. Even then, it took us almost another 7 years to find a building with suitable size and ceiling height to make it a reality! Cheer Factory All-Stars & Tumbling, LLC opened in June 2015. We began with just a gray warehouse, gray wrestling mats, lots of dirt and dust, and an air floor. It was a great space, but pretty bland! Cheer Factory and it's students have been insured since it's beginnings, June 2015!
Our Spring Floor...
Our spring floor finally arrived, 7 weeks late, and was in pieces. Did I say in pieces? Lots of pieces. There are approximately 2420 springs under that thing! Thanks to parents, friends and students, we figured it out and put it together! What a task! Thanks to all who helped!!
Some color and more equipment
After lots of paint, sweat, and elbow grease... we purchased a few balance beams, several sets of bars, a tumble track, a vault, trampoline, and more, padded some walls, we now have a beautiful gym. Again, we couldn't have done this without community support, our students and their families who have generously donated their time, sweat and supplies..In response to requests, we began a gymnastics pre-team and introduced "Delaware Valley Gymnastics Center", We are ONE business.
We love being here for your children. That's why we do what we do!
