We love YCOA!! My daughter (7 years old) has came out of her shell so much by joining YCOA cheer. In the past two years I have seen her learn and grow so much with her self confidence. Thank you all so much for this awesome program and also the awesome coaches that you have in place!

"At the cheer showcase, we just attended, EVERYONE got a large trophy! I was so surprised to see that the focus was truly on the "performance" and opportunity for the students, not on COMPETITION! My daugher had a great time and although did not place 1st, she left feeling like a WINNER!

"My student is now a Blue Belt in the YCOA program, he started out SHY and nervous to do Karate, but now he is so proud to put his GI on, it makes me worry less about his safety and knowing he has been given great leadership and confidence skills reassures me that I have him in the right program."
"The Soccer Program has been awesome for my son with ADD - he gets to let out some energy in a productive way that is also financially within my means. The coach is great with the students." Gina (parent) Soccer
