Welcome to Showtime Elite Atlanta.
We are glad you are here!
If you are new to cheer, crossing over from gymnastics, have participated in sideline cheer, or are a veteran of all-star cheer SE has a place for you.
SE, formerly known as NMEC and Rockstar Cheer Atlanta, has been in Woodstock for almost 10 years. Our story begins with me coaching my daughter in competitive gymnastics at NMGC. She excelled in tumbling but didn't love the beam so much (my favorite event!) So, I opened up a few tumbling classes for her and some of her sideline cheer friends. One thing led to another and we blew out a wall of our gymnastics facility and created a dedicated space for all things cheer. What began as tumble quickly progressed to all-star cheer, school cheer, choreography, more schools, and the need to grow. We moved into our own dedicated cheer space and soon became a D1 (large gym) training facility.
Our program is home to over 15 all-star competitive teams and 3 CheerAbilities teams for athletes of all ages. We partner with 8 local school programs as well as CYFA sideline and competition programs. We also train over 200 kids weekly in tumbling classes.
Our commitment to our athletes, the sport of cheer, and our community is paramount to our success. Each instructor must pass a ClearCheck background check, be a member in good standing with USASF, be credentialed/certified with USASF, pass SafeSport core classes and be First Aid/CPR certified.
MEET OUR TEAM
Get to know a little about our coaches.
The Atlanta location of SE is owned, operated and managed by Carolyn and Glenn Garrison. Glenn manages HR, systems, and the back office while Carolyn is hands on with facility management, class logistics, coach training and compliance and squeezing in coaching for the littles. The love of competitive sports runs deep with both Carolyn & Glenn. Glenn was a recruited collegiate soccer player who still plays competitively today. For Carolyn, she was a life-long competitive gymnast here in Atlanta participating in local, regional and national competitions. They met at the Ashford-Dunwoody YMCA where a foundation to positively impact the lives of young people through sport was defined. Cheer crossed our paths and we have never looked back. We are passionate about progression, safety and subscribe to the process that athletes succeed when the triangle of support is solid; parent, athlete and coach is solid and strong.
