Platinum Athletics is the most successful competitive cheerleading and dance teams in our area. Platinum has over 200 National Titles and is still the only program in the state to receive a Full Paid Bid to the Cheerleading Worlds multiple times (2011, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020). We also are one of the few programs that focuses on all levels putting as much energy and passion into our level 1 program as our level 5. In 2014 we were the ONLY program in Missouri to take a level 2 team to the Summit and even though it was our first year competing at that prestigious and very exclusive competition we placed 8th in the country in a division of 53 teams! We have since taken multiple teams to the Summit and in 2016 we were the only gym in MO to take 4 separate teams to summit! In 2017 we followed that up by being the ONLY program in Missouri to take the ENTIRE PROGRAM to worlds or summit and we did it THREE TIMES (2017, 2018, 2019) We are also the first program in Missouri to win a FULL PAID bid to the Summit for a cheer team and dance team!
The success could not be achieved without an amazing staff. Working for Platinum Athletics is considered a huge honor amongst professionals in the industry. Our reputation and talent level of our athletes make this one of the most sought-after places to work in cheer & dance. While pushing our athletes to be the very best, we take pride in offering the safest environment possible. Our energetic, mature and experienced USASF certified coaches are passionate and professional about their jobs. From the moment you join you will experience the difference at Platinum!
The most direct way that we help the athletes in our program is by improving their skills and helping them reach their athletic potential; but we also believe our program serves a higher purpose. Throughout their lives, everyone will be put in situations where they must work together with others to achieve common goals. Life lessons such as work ethic, responsibility, accountability and teamwork help build character. No other sport builds self-esteem for children than all-star cheerleading. The hours, weeks, months, even years of work that go into improving stunts, tumbling, jumps, and motions will improve your fitness and skills. More importantly, athletes learn about sportsmanship, working together towards goals, and striving to win. Besides the success of our program on the mat, we are most proud of the life lessons that we have been able to give to the athletes at Platinum Athletics!
