Cheer Professional published Spotlight: A.S.G.A., profiling the group via co-founder Randy Dickey.
The group started back in 2008 with a select group of growing gyms including ACX, CEA, Cheer Carolina All-Stars, Charlotte Allstars and Rockstar Cheer. Dickey says the group was “fairly low-key” at that point and mainly connected several times a year to share resources, review scoring systems and combine buying power. “We’d work together to get volume pricing on uniforms and hotel rooms,” he explains. It wasn’t until 2012 that the ASGA membership eventually exploded: “When they announced the tumbling restrictions around the time of Worlds, we had 1,000 people show up to our conference call,” remembers Dickey.
