About USA Wildcats
The USA Wildcats, established in 1997 as a senior team that practiced out of a gymnastic school in Watertown, CT. In 1999 a Junior team was added but as this sport was growing so was the USA Wildcats.
We moved into our own Waterbury facility in 2003 where we had almost 100 athletes.
Our staff is whole-heartedly dedicated to making your experience an enjoyable and enriching one for both you and your child.
Since starting with one cheerleading team in May 1997, we have grown to include 13 cheerleading teams. We are looking to make this year our all-around best yet.
On behalf of the coaching staff and myself, I want you to know that we are dedicated to helping each cheerleader maximize their individual experience with the USA Wildcats. Over the years we have worked hard to create a close Wildcat family and even though we are a growing organization, we take the initiative to:
USA Wildcat’s mission is to teach the sport of competitive cheerleading in a way that is positive, safe and effective. Our goal is to provide an affordable, character-building program for the youth of our state. The staff is here to strengthen and condition, teach proper motion technique, jumps, stunting, tumbling and provide a level of skill required to compete at a national level.
Our commitment is to provide a positive outlet for athletes to express their capabilities, creativity and skills. We encourage members to demonstrate excellence in sportsmanship, competitiveness, teamwork, and leadership while acting as positive role models and effective members of their community.
Along with the physical side of cheerleading we strive to build self-confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem. This enables the cheerleaders to achieve their goals, develop everlasting friends and have fun while doing it.
By providing a wholesome environment for athletic competition we will instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, and the importance of commitment.
