"When my daughter was 7, I signed her up for Lightning Cheer through Apollo Gymnastics. Cheer appealed to us because she was a quiet, introverted kid, and we wanted her to have the team experience where her success was based on the success of the team, where she would meet new kids with similar interests, and allow her the opportunity to become more comfortable interacting with others. What we got was that and more. Cheer is a perfect mix of dance, gymnastics, and stunting. Perfect for any child who is active and wants to move. I have watched my daughter over the last 5 years become an athlete. Through Cheer, she has had so many great experiences. When it is time to compete, she is excited and regardless of the outcome, the team, and coaches are always supportive and strive to do more the next time. Her coaches, and the whole team at Apollo nurture the development of the athletes in a way that is fun, challenging and respectful. Lightning Cheer is North Bay’s hidden gem. I highly recommend it."  Stacey
