    What gyms would you consider "the elite, successful, cream of the crop" gyms across the country, name your top 5 and why? Please don't base it on level 5 - I'm more interested in overall program quality. The first gym that comes to mind for me is Stingrays and then I'm lost. Stingrays training of athletes from level 1- 5 are amazing, the product speaks for itself on the mat. They have proven to be successful at Cheersport, NCA, UCA and Worlds bringing home titles at all levels; tuition cost seems reasonable enough; top notch coaching staff; camaraderie amongst staff and athletes

    California Allstars, the teams 1-5 are very successful at competition, great sportsmanship, great staff, just overall they're amazing :)

    I'm not certain I understand the meaning of the cow as it appears to be in disrespect and distaste - I'm simply asking a question as a parent on this board who is not quite as knowlegeable about all of the mega gyms across the country and simply wanted to gather information. Thanks for the positive reply I see above. Can this be moved to the Parent section, perhaps, I will receive insight there.

    I would say World Cup is one of the top gyms in the country. They have amazing teams from the minis all the way up to Shooting Stars. They also have one of the most positive learning environments around.

    No. Sometimes it's really hard when a lot of new threads come up, because a lot of the time the questions they've asked have been asked a million times before! :D

    California all-stars takes number 1 hands down in my book considering they won 12 NCA titles and 4 gold medals at Worlds this season... They're doing something right!

    I'm really surprised no one has said Cheer Extreme. Most of their level five athletes have been there since they were lever one.

    But their lower levels are arguably a lot weaker than their level 5s
