In the spring of 2019 as HotCheer enters their 20th season, we are expanding programming beyond cheer and tumble to include a variety of athletic activities and rebranding the overall gym as Impact Athletics.  HotCheer Allstars will continue as they have for the past 19 years.  We will be introducing a new and improved Elite Warrior Program, continue with Nerf Nights and Nerf Birthday parties, and more programming to come.  We are excited to reach a wider variety of clients in the Elizabeth Township and surrounding communities.

HotCheer has been in existence since the spring of 2000.  Our most important function is our role as a personal development center for young people.  The ways we do this include competitive cheerleading teams, adaptive/special needs cheer,  recreational tumbling programs, Elite Warrior fitness program, birthday parties, summer day camps, and our newest but wildly popular activity… Nerf Nights.  We offer open gym time weekly, daytime playtime for caregivers and toddlers to explore gross motor and sensory activities, and gym rental for school and recreation programs.  It is our mission to create confident, joyful, invigorated, and enthusiastic students in an environment that celebrates the individual while teaching teamwork, goal setting, perseverance, and compassion.  What this means for your family is that YOU GET IT ALL HERE!  We’ve put together the best of the best in a program that leaves our athletes sweating, smiling and learning…all while having the times of their lives and making friends for life!

Our business is located in the Court Time Complex.  We are very grateful to the Sandersons for building us a beautiful facility in a safe, child friendly environment. We were the first clients at Court Time in 2005.  With the expansion of the Court Time Complex, we moved into our state of the art gym specially designed for us in 2009. The entrance to the gym is through the side double doors at the far side of the parking lot (not through the main doors). Our new gym is complete with 2 full size competition spring floors, a 40′ tumble tack (with resi-pit), a 60′ rod floor, standing tumbling section (springs), class area, misc. tumbling equipment, front lobby w/ seating and flat-screen TV, member’s storage area, and coaches area, flat screen tvs on both cheer floors with Apple TV for video review.  Our facility is air conditioned.  Free wifi is available to our clients as well as a complimentary coffee station for parents.  There is a monitor in our lobby streaming video of the activity in the gym.

HotCheer believes in giving back to the community and has done so through free community events such as Trunk or Treat, Milk and Cookies with Santa, Easter Egg Hunts, Valentines for Senior Citizens, providing and serving meals at The Intersection, and many more activities of service.
