Charlotte All-Star Cheerleading or known as CAC, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, is one of the largest and most respected[who?] Allstar cheerleading programs in the United States with over 400 cheerleaders and 25 teams. Along the way CAC earned over 800 National Championship titles. Even more importantly, CAC has had an opportunity to positively shape the lives of thousands of kids who have passed through the program. They want every one of their cheerleaders to come out of the program better than they were coming in. Be it improved physical fitness and cheerleading skills, a better understanding of what it takes to be a successful member of a team, increased self-confidence or an understanding that they can be the best and compete with the best without ethical or moral sacrifice. It is their sincere hope that we can develop these life skills and more, all in a fun and positive environment.
Charlotte Allstar Cheerleading was founded in 1990 by co-owners Julie O'Brien and Kevin Brubaker. With nothing but an empty warehouse, some used gymnastics equipment and a passion for teaching kids, the CAC program began with just one team of 18 cheerleaders. Charlotte Allstars is a competitive gym; they go to competitions all over the U.S. At the 2005-2006 Cheerleading Worlds, they won 2nd place, taking home a silver medal. They also took home bronze in 2010.
In April 2012, Charlotte added a new location in Fort Mill, SC, about 30 minutes away from the main location. The location is referred to as CAC South. In April 2013, Charlotte bought out formally Prodigy All-stars of Concord to become CAC North. It's about 40 minutes from CAC Main.
