As an All Star parent during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is easy to feel you don't have the support required to keep your athlete thriving in their sport. USASF recognizes this and strives to bring you resources that will allow you to help your cheer or dance athlete grow and maintain all that their hard work has brought them. Encourage your athlete to stay connected to their coach and teammates, discover leadership and enrichment opportunities, and learn about USASF partner programs until they are able to return to practice or rehearsal and the sport they love.
