London Heat has been running for ten years strong! We are currently running ten competitive programs and one pre-competitive program with athletes of all ages. Our culture is one of team work, shared responsibility, and shared reward.
All Star Cheer is one of Canada’s fastest growing sports. All Star Cheer is gaining in popularity for many reasons. It is a fun activity that combines all the athletic components of sport such as strength, power, flexibility, endurance, fitness and mental tenacity. It also incorporates skills from gymnastics, dance, and stunting cheer, and athletes in the sport work toward developing skills such as tumbling, jumping, stunting, performance skills and team work. Not only does All Star Cheer help athletes increase their body awareness and self-esteem, it also helps them to develop leadership and communication skills.

Yes we do! If you are interested in cheerleading without competitions or travelling, we encourage athletes to join one of our recreational Tumble & Cheer classes. This program is designed for athletes who wish to learn cheerleading in a non-competitive environment or who are not quite ready for the competitive stream. If you like cheerleading but don’t have time to travel, compete, or you just want to cheer for fun, this is your best option.
Yes we do! Our pre-competitive cheerleading team is called Fireworks. This team is perfect for the athlete who has enjoyed LGA’s recreational Tumble & Cheer classes, or for any athlete who is interested in cheerlreading and is looking for a new challenge without a full commitment to a competitive program. Fireworks requires no traveling, competition fees or uniform costs. Fireworks will only be required to order the practice uniform! Any athlete between the ages of 6-14 can register for this team. Fireworks trains once a week following the competitive schedule starting in June and ending in April. Not only will these athletes get to work as a team towards a routine that will challenge them, but they will also get to perform with the other London Heat teams at both of our showcases!
No. All Star teams train year round for competitions and exhibitions with the goals of competing well and winning. All Star cheer differs from most other sports in that every team member is vital to the team and its performance. There are no bench warmers and no second string teams. Every member of the team will train in all aspects of the sport in order to develop their skills and be the best!
