While Cheer Athletics has expanded from their original beginnings, the program still works to instill a sense of ‘tradition’ in every athlete, staff, and family that are a part of the CA family.  The continued use of the original team names through the program’s secret code ‘G3FC2A’, ensures that tradition is embedded in every of who they have become.  As the most decorated program in the world, the program often sets and determines trends in style, choreography, music, and gym culture.
