What is a Half Year Non-Travel team at Ultimate Cheer Lubbock? Athletes will be grouped together based on their age (3 to 6, 6 to 8, 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18). Athletes will have one team practice per week, and one tumbling class per week. Teams will learn a 1:30-2:00 minute routine to perform at Ultimate Cheer Lubbock Showoff's and local competitions. You do not have to have any previous experience to join. We will teach your athlete everything they need to know!
