08/05/2017 - Visit to St. Jude



We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to send three of our Supermodels to Memphis, TN to check out the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital they helped donate over $11,000 to last season. Kennedy, Aurora, and Kaylee visited with other top fundraising teams. During their visit, the girls toured the model apartments at Target House, which is apartment-style housing where families are assigned to stay if they are on campus for more than three months. They also toured the entire facility and visited with children during their time in Memphis. We are so thankful we are able to donate and help make a difference in children’s lives. None of this could be possible without Varsity All Star. Visit our social media channels for more photos and information about the girls’ journey to Memphis!


"Our group mainly sat with the kids and it was definitely eye opening and made my day. A dad came over to another parent at our table saying how much he loves the cheerleaders talking and interacting with the patients and that gave me chills. The little boy Kennedy and I were talking to was beyond excited and did not want us to leave!" -Aurora Marcoux



07/31/2017 - 2017 Back to School Donation Drive

Our hearts are so full at Pittsburgh Superstars! We would like to give a huge thank you to all of the families who donated to our annual back to school donation drive benefiting North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO). NHCO's back to school collection benefits hundreds of kindergarten through high school children in our surrounding area. Coach Kaylee has been a part of this collection program for many years now, which makes this donation very special to her. Her goal was for each athlete to bring in at least one item so we could donate over 100 items. That goal was surpassed by the generous families at Pittsburgh Superstars, some who even stuffed full backpacks!


For more information on NHCO and their back to school collection drive, click here.


Our next donation drive will be winter coats, starting in September!

A HUGE shoutout to a few of our Youth 2 Glam Girls for feeding some of the homeless in Columbus, OH this past weekend. The girls asked their parents to give food away to the less fortunate.

The Supermodels of Pittsburgh Superstars are honored to have been invited to be part of the St. Jude's event at Cheersport on Friday, February 17, 2017 in Atlanta! We will be competing against 5 other teams in the large division. This competition is a little different in that the winner in each division is based on fundraising and a Twitter contest instead of a score!

We hope you will consider making a donation to not only help us with this prestigious event but most importantly to help support St. Jude's lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and we need your help to reach our fundraising goal.

Donate directly to our online fundraising link of http://fundraising.stjude.org/goto/superstarsmodels

This will be the 8th year in a row for our senior team, the Supermodels, competing this year in the small senior level 5 division. Supermodels finished in 17th place in this very tough division. Congrats ladies!

This will be the 5th year our International Open Coed Level 5 team, Open Black, has competed at the Cheerleading Worlds. Open Black advanced from the preliminary round to Semi-finals with the least deductions throughout the entire IOC5 division and was the only team with an at-large bid to advance to semi-finals. Open Black finished the preliminary round in 9th place. Way to go Open Black! 

We took three teams, Large Junior 2, Small Junior 3, and Large Senior 4, to The Summit in Orlando Florida. Junior 2 and Senior 4 advanced to finals and took home a second place finish for our Junior team and a fifth place finish for our Senior team. Our Small Junior 3 team hit a perfect routine in the preliminary round in a division with the top 19 teams ending day one with zero deductions. We are very proud of all of our athletes and to say once again we have two teams finish top 5 for two years in a row at The Summit.

03/25/2011 - Shining Stars

Pittsburgh Superstars Shining Stars

Pittsburgh Superstars Shining Stars was one of 5 Special-Needs Cheerleading teams featured in an article recently published in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Below are excerpts from the story. You can read the complete article at http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/pittsburgh/s_725226.html.

Pictured in the photo is Chloe Wiseman.

Born 10 years ago at a gym in Lexington, Ky., special-needs cheerleading has spread across the nation. Our very own Shining Stars are one of five special needs teams in this area.

Teams fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. All-Star Federation, which oversees cheerleading teams not affiliated with schools or athletic associations.Children as young as 4 participate, as do adults. Nearly 40 people compete on special-needs teams in the Pittsburgh area. With assistance, many tumble and perform typical cheerleading routines.

Special-needs cheerleaders generally do not receive scores at events. Judges provide comments critiquing their performances. Routines include cartwheels, jumps and pyramids performed to music.

"Special-needs cheerleaders amaze me all the time," said Pittsburgh Superstars Shining Stars Coach Becky Troppman.

Special-needs cheerleaders who are not able to tumble or fly find other ways to perform.

Members enjoy the social interaction provided by special-needs teams, who train in gyms with non-special needs cheerleaders.

Bill Presson, vice chair of the special-needs committee of the U.S. All-Star Federation, said 300 gyms sponsor special-needs cheerleading teams nationwide. Many are in the Southeast, where cheerleading as a whole is very popular.

Presson helped develop special-needs cheerleading as coach of the Kentucky Elite cheerleading team in 2001. He is surprised by its growth during the past decade.

"I thought it would be like the Special Olympics, where you hold it for about a week and then it's over," he said. "It's become more of a year-round thing." Presson of Birmingham, Ala., said the concept started in routine fashion.

"A parent attending a meeting (of the Kentucky Elite) brought it up and thought it would be a good idea," Presson said. "We introduced it. It became really popular after a lot of people saw it at Cheersport (Nationals) in 2002."

Cheersport plays host to the world's largest national cheer and dance championships. According to Presson, 21 special-needs teams -- the most ever -- competed at this year's championships Feb. 18-20 in Atlanta. More than 900 teams competed overall. Pittsburgh area special-needs teams mostly perform locally.



10/28/2010 - Worlds 2010


In 2009, Pittsburgh Superstars was the first gym in Pennsylvania to have three cheer teams qualify and participate in the USASF Worlds Cheerleading and Dance competition! We are very proud to have repeated the accomplishment of taking 3 teams again this year to the 2010 competition. Our two cheer teams finished in the top ten in their divisions and our dance team finished in the top 20.

* Large All-Girl Senior Level 5 - 8th place



* International Open Co-Ed Level 5 - 7th place


*Senior Hip Hop - 18th place




03/25/2010 - Congratulations to our Superstar


  Congratulations to our Superstar



Johnna Petitte 

who is featured on the cover of the February edition of American Cheerleader Magazine!


Johnna is a cheerleader on our International Open Coed Team and also cheers for West Virginia University.  We're very proud of you, Johnna!





"Although the WVU team doesn’t compete, Johnna was able to satisfy that side of her by joining the Pittsburgh Superstars Open team, which lead her to attend The Cheerleading Worlds for the first time in 2009, where her team placed seventh. “I love being back in the gym and preparing for competition. I guess I’ll never get rid of my competitive nature,” she says."



AC: How and when did you get involved with Pittsburgh Superstars’ Open team?

Johnna: When I knew I was moving back to my hometown, I also knew that I wanted to continue competitive cheerleading. Some of my old cheerleading friends told me about Pittsburgh’s Open team and it sounded perfect. I returned from Hawaii in July 2008 and went to my first Pittsburgh All-Star practice the first week I was back on the mainland. I love cheering on the Open team because I get to train with so many experienced and talented cheerleaders. We have cheerleaders from four universities on our team. I also love being the oldest team at the gym, because the younger athletes look up to us, which is a great feeling."

04/27/2009 - 3 Teams. . .1 Dream

The following is the conclusion of a very successful season for all Pittsburgh Superstars Cheer and Dance teams.

-International Open Co-Ed Level 5 - 8th place
