Small Gym September was a huge hit and YOU chose four incredible programs to be featured on FloCheer this season. 

Now it's time to get to know the 2020 Small Gym September Champions! Next up is Bluegrass Athletics from Nicholasville, Kentucky!

Bluegrass Athletics is dedicated to helping each athlete reach their full potential on and off the mat. 

"Our goal is to teach life lessons and life skills, through cheerleading," shared owner, Shannon Richmond. "A large number of the kids will never cheer again after high school. We hope they are learning to be successful in whatever they chose to do and not just learning to tumble and stunt."

Being a small gym is something the coaches and staff at Bluegrass Athletics pride themselves in. 

"Being a small gym is like growing up in a small town. All of the coaches know all of the athlete's names, all of the kids are able to get to know each other. The parents are close because they are in the gym as much as we are. It means we can do pool parties and bonfires and Christmas parties and everyone knows everyone. It means we get cards and provide meal trains when gym families have injuries or illnesses, it means that we can take the time to get to know each kid and each family before deciding if they are the right fit instead of signing up everyone that walks through the door. We LOVE all of these things about being a small gym."

Top Moments From Bluegrass Athletics

  • Bluegrass Athletics had five teams attend The D2 Summit in 2017
  • Bluegrass Athletics' Senior Coed Level 5 team finished in the top 10 at The D2 Summit in 2018 and 2019.
  • Bluegrass Athletics' Senior XSmall Coed team, Code Blue, earned a bid to The Cheerleading Worlds 2019 and made it to Semi-Finals in their first year.
  • Code Blue was in the top 25 Level 6 scores at JAMfest Cheer Super Nationals 2020 and earned a bid to The Cheerleading Worlds 2020.
  • Bluegrass Athletics' Senior Coed Level 5 team won COA Nationals in 2020.

This season, Bluegrass Athletics has 90 athletes that make up their seven talented teams. 

"This year we have some really strong teams and you can expect big things from the gym as a whole," shared Richmond.
