Boo$t Your Net

The USASF and your Connection Leaders help you find extra $ and resources hiding within your own program.

Road Map to Boo$t Your Net

Please note: The BOO$T Your Net Guidebook was developed by The Connection Leaders in partnership with the USASF as an initiative to provide awareness, education and resources related to the issue of burnout in member owners, coaches and athletes.

The webinar and guidebook was developed prior to the COVID_19 Crisis, however, the content included does provide relevant and useful information for owners on building healthy revenue streams to support their businesses.

Preschool FUNdamentals is a foundational, class-based course. The U.S. All Star Federation has developed it to help YOU offer a new, lower cost, less intensive product in your facility that attracts first-time young athletes to All Star.

The lessons have been developed to introduce cheer in a FUN way to athletes that have never been a part of All Star and are curious as to what it’s all about. The idea is for athletes and families to fall in love with All Star cheer in a learning-only, non-competitive environment. Competition teams are there when the athletes are fully prepared through FUNdamentals!  

Preschool FUNdamentals is a program based on progressions over 12 weeks. As athletes master the skills in Preschool FUNdamentals they then can progress to FUNdamentals Cheer 1, 2, and 3. By the time the athletes complete FUNdamentals Cheer 3 they will have been introduced to and learning Elite Level 1 skills. At this point you get to help guide them to a direction in your program that best fits their needs, whether that is to additional classes, or perhaps to a Novice, Prep or Elite Team.

Let the FUN begin!
