Our story starts with a young girl Kimberley aged 10 receiving a pair of toy pom poms her mother had bought back from Singapore. At age 13 Kimberley attempted to start her first cheerleading business making pom poms after purchasing 1000 plastic bags, but after realizing how long it would take to handmake pom poms this wee business failed. Kimberley then dreamed of being an Auckland 91FM Rugby Cheerleader but after 3 failed attempts, instead of giving up, she decided to start her own real American style cheer team … and All Star Cheerleaders was born!! Kimberley studied Law and Accounting and had a very sensible job working as a lawyer at Bell Gully, but always knew there was something missing. In 2001, the first junior All Star cheer team of 12 athletes started training at Whenuapai School as an afterschool hobby. Then in 2003 the first real All Star clubs were born – starting in 4 different areas of Auckland and giving them all different uniforms – competitive cheerleading in NZ started!! Since then All Star has grown to 10 locations nationwide, with over 10,000 athletes coming through our gyms. We have won multiple national and international championships with a number of golds at the ICU World Championships in Disney World Florida.
