Athletic Perfection cheer gym in Tracy has teamed up with Powerful Words Character Development, created by Dr. Robyn J.A. Silverman, a child psychologist known for her work on child development, parenting advice and helping girls build self-esteem.
Athletic Perfection owner Julie Van Os said Silverman’s Powerful Words program is a way to get her students to focus on how their activity at the cheer gym is part of their overall character development.
“We’ve always tagged ourselves as teaching more than cheer, tumbling and flips,” she said, adding that a “powerful word” — “diligence,” for example — will be the gym’s theme each month.
