North Central Athletics

North Central Athletics

Since 2011, North Central Athletics (NCA) has been bringing the highest level of All-Star cheerleading and tumbling to the Clarksburg area. NCA serves athletes from all across the North Central region, but also as far south as Beckley, WV and as north as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Since its origination, NCA has offered competitive cheerleading and tumbling to its athletes. Starting with 100 athletes, NCA has quickly grown to service well over 300 athletes.

North Central Athletics offers a safe and constructive atmosphere for their athletes to obtain the best training in All-Star cheerleading and tumbling from the most qualified instructors for athletes ages 2-18. On top of the All-Star cheerleading and tumbling, NCA coaches and staff have provided choreography for schools in the area.

Since 2011 NCA has brought home over 100 1st place Championships or National Championships. NCA competes in All Star cheerleading competitions from January to May. NCA’s teams travel from Nashville to Baltimore and various cities in between to compete in All Star cheerleading competitions.

In addition to offering the highest quality services to their athletes, North Central Athletics offers their facilities to the public. The gym hosts open gym nights for anyone between the ages of 2-18 to come and practice their tumbling. Lock-ins are also hosted for anyone to attend, and provide supervised activities for children in the community to attend. “We’ll charge around $10 and then provide pizza and snacks, the kids can watch a movie, and then utilize our facilities”, said Drew Banko. North Central Athletics is managed by Banko, he also is coach for one of their many All-Star teams. Banko is accompanied by Charles Wamsley, who is the head tumbling instructor at the gym, and is also a coach of their All-Star teams.

Community involvement is a vital part of the gym’s atmosphere, and the athletes at North Central Athletics often participate in parades and community service projects to give back to those in the Clarksburg community. The gym has collected canned food for local churches, held clothing drives for area organizations, and raised money to benefit the Harrison County Humane Society.

NCA is located in the old Carmichael Building that has a vast legacy of previously being a destination for the youth in the community. NCA is continuing on the building’s tradition of being a safe place for youth in the Clarksburg area. North Central Athletics is located at 112 North Sixth Street, Clarksburg. Visit their Facebook for more information about the gym, and sure to check out their Instagram and Twitter to keep up with what the gym is doing!
