The Southern Tier Starlites was originally formed as a winter cheer pom dance team to give our talented youth a place to continue to grow in cheerleading through a competitive off season pom dance team. In 2016, the Nova (Jr.) and Vega (Sr.) Cheerleading teams were added. We also added the Twinkles, an introduction to pom dance team and the Little Lites Pom Dance team. All our teams practice from September through the end of April. We compete in 3 competitions in the spring. With the exception of our Twinkles Team. Their season is mid August through the end of October. In 2017 we added the youth cheerleading team LUNA.
