About Us

We welcome you to the best program in New York. Over the past several years our program has set a standard of excellence that cannot be matched. 

The goal of the Core Athletix is to make sure that your child feels better about his/herself at the end of the year then he/she did at the start of the season. 

The Core staff is dedicated to making this happen; we will work very hard to make this a positive experience for all involved.  After all, cheerleading is about making memories.

Please refer to the All Star tab for information regarding or Code of Conduct.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the gym at (585) 244-2496


Good sportsmanship, polite manners and a kind disposition are mandatory at all competitions and practices.  Core Athletix prides itself on setting a high standard of behavior.  Please help us to continue in the endeavor.


At Core Athletix we strive to not only be the best, but compete against the best, inside and outside of our area by splitting our competition season into both local and travel competitions.  Splitting competitions not only allows for a fun and competitive environment for our athletes, but also a reasonably priced program for our parents. Each competition is carefully selected to give the athlete the opportunity to be successful, but also challenged.  It is not our programs intent to simply WIN.  While we love to do that, we also love to challenge and grow our athletes through National Competitions that stretch their talent and limits!

Founded in May 2009, what started out as a simple idea by the founders quickly became a reality. Core Athletix was founded with one goal in mind, to be the largest, most comprehensive, well equipped facility of its kind in  New York State. Enabled and driven by program mergers and staff aquisitions, what was once a humble beginning exploded into a regional powerhouse. Housed inside the largest gym of its kind in Upstate New York, we are home to the Nationally recognized Core Athletix All-Stars, as well as the premier training facility for numerous local and regional High School and Collegiate Cheerleading teams. Core Athletix is a multi-purpose training facility dedicated to the advancement of the cheer athlete. Our goal is to provide a unique opportunity in the Northeast, specializing in the sports of Tumbling and Cheerleading, while maintaining and providing a safe and fun atmosphere for athletes of all ages and skill levels.
