Every child needs a place of pride, value, accountability and a place to be a part of something greater than themselves, both individually and collectively. For CheerVille Gallatin owners Jamie Byrd, BJ Lindenberger and longtime Sumner County resident Katie Lindsey, CheerVille Gallatin was created for just that purpose and as a place for fun, growth and learning, simultaneously.
Having operated in Hendersonville for eight years, CheerVille has become a pillar of youth development across Sumner, Davidson and Robertson Counties and beyond. When the opportunity came to expand into Gallatin, Jamie, BJ and Katie knew this would give CheerVille an opportunity to serve a wider local area and they embraced the opportunity.
Offering a wide range of classes including cheerleading, flipping, advanced levels, teams and lessons for all age groups, CheerVille’s recreational programs are the perfect opportunity to foster safe and fun learning. CheerVille provides an environment to discover and develop athletic abilities while learning life lessons from USASF-certified coaches who have dedicated themselves to the industry and built careers centered around empowering young athletes to reach their full potential.
CheerVille has racked up some amazing local and national accolades. This past season, CheerVille’s Level 6 Limited XSmall Coed team, Anarchy, won gold at The USASF Cheerleading World Championships. With this achievement, Anarchy became the first Tennessee team to win the championship. In addition, CheerVille’s Phantom out of Mt. Juliet received gold and Bellatrix out of Hendersonville and Mafia out of Mt. Juliet received silver at The Cheerleading Summit.
CheerVille recently launched two new programs geared towards younger athletes. Flips! preschool tumbling (ages 18 months to five years) encourages the development of early motor skills and teaches the building blocks of tumbling. The second program is for beginner athletes with the novice cheerleading program (ages three and up) to learn the love of cheerleading without the long-term commitment. CheerVille has a long history of working hand in hand with local school programs and focuses on all aspects of traditional school and recreational training, including competition cheerleading, gameday routines, sideline cheers and more. The relationships built with local schools while working together are a true compliment on both sides of the mat.
CheerVille is also developing a stunt and acrobatics program and is currently constructing a new, custom-built, facility in Hendersonville to work alongside Gallatin’s existing location to house athletes from all over Sumner County (completion, Spring 2023).
In addition to elite training and competition programs, CheerVille’s Party Place has quickly become the perfect birthday party location. With a full-sized bounce house, spring floors, pits and trampolines, CheerVille ensures every child’s birthday is the most exciting day of the year and exists as a safe space for events for just that!
The versatility in CheerVille’s offerings, in addition to the local commitment and pride in excellence by serving each and every family who walks through their doors, really sets CheerVille apart in Gallatin, Sumner County and beyond. As Katie puts it, “as our family continues to grow, our coaches and athletes train harder to reach new heights, and we are ready for another successful year and excited to show the world why Villains Do It Better!”
