Extra-Curricular Activities Learners Can Enjoy at MYS
Cheer, Dance, Gymnastics
Students have plenty of opportunities to practice cheer and dance techniques during the day at MYS Academy. Student-athletes have the option (if not already a part of a cheer team) to join our Dynasty Philly Elite All-Star Cheer Team. However, you do not have to be a part of Dynasty to utilize the center for education. You can be a part of any cheer team in the area and attend the center for cyber education and support. The center is open to all learners.
Dynasty is a competitive team that travels across the country competing in local, regional and national competitions. Visit us on Facebook (Dynasty Spirit Elite All-Star Cheerleading and Dance) for more information.
Our athletes compete through choreographed routines that include: cheer motions, jumps, stunts, and dance. All of our members are an important part of the team. Our instructors reinforce teamwork and the support of one another. Our coaches all have extensive training and continually learn new ways to improve skills and techniques. We enjoy getting to know each athlete’s ability level and personality.

ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
Our Athlete Development Training program (ADT) is based on the principle that learners can become better athletes through a variety of specialized agility, balance, coordination, and speed training methods. ADT sessions are delivered by highly trained, certified trainers. ADT provides our student-athletes the opportunity to develop a broad skill base by focusing on areas of gross motor skills that require specialized, individual attention.
ADT sessions can range from strength training to footwork drills, to games that focus on balance, coordination, reaction time, or speed. Student-athletes also have recovery days, which are centered on regeneration through dynamic stretching and yoga.
Students engage in various STEAM-related hands-on activities. All activities are project-based and designed to increase learners imagination and creativity. Some activities are coding, robotics and stem challenges.
