Chesterland, Ohio cheerleading and tumbling academy provides a high-quality, professional, competitive cheer program to the athletes of northern Ohio and northwestern Pennsylvania.

X-CEL Athletics, a Chesterland-based cheerleading and tumble academy, is proud to announce that three of its cheer teams placed in the May 2014 Cheer Summit competition at the Walt Disney World Resort® in Orlando, FL.

Four of the XCEL teams were awarded bids to compete at the ESPN center in Disney World. Two of the bids were full paid! Meaning they had their competition fees, entrance to the Disney parks and their boarding paid for. Three of the teams competed. The X-CEL Athletics’ youth team, Velocity, took 6th place out of 17 teams that competed. The junior team, Infinity, took 7th place out of 16 teams that competed and the senior team, Authority, took 9th place out of 18 competing teams.

Created solely for the best cheer teams from across the country, The Summit provides a unique experience for youth, junior and senior levels in non-worlds divisions to face off in a live competition.
X-CEL Athletics Cheerleading and Tumble Academy builds better athletes by providing continual progressions through correct fundamental teaching procedures. Stressing the importance of proper conditioning through exercise and fitness, X-CEL Athletics helps maintain a safe, healthy and pleasant environment for the entire family.

X-CEL Athletics provides students with a rewarding and enjoyable experience while building self-esteem. By helping each child strive to learn and perfect new skills at his or her own pace, X-CEL Athletics encourages and promotes the value of teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence.

“Our workouts are all encompassing, focusing on strength, flexibility, stamina, body awareness, and posture, all while having a whole lot of fun! We want only the best for our cheerleaders and offer top coaches, top facilities and a top-quality program. Our cheer programs help us to produce not only winning cheerleaders but winners in life!” said Melanie Vitale, X-CEL Athletics Owner.

X-CEL Athletics also offers programs for special-needs children and adults, ages 5 to 25 years. If you would like to be a part of one of the All-Season teams in either Chesterland or Erie, please call 440-824-0300 for a private evaluation.
