    Cheer Tryouts
     This year, a brand new program is being offered at the Oldham County All About Kids location. It is called “Mini-prep All Stars.” It is still a competitive all-star cheer program, but athletes will only attend local competitions. It’s for ages 3-11 and is a great alternative for athletes or parents who don’t want to dive into the full all star program. It is less practice with shorter routine and less expensive than the traditional all star program.
