Turners History

Turners All  Star  Cheerleading was established in 1995, and was the first all star cheerleading team in PA

We  are  so  blessed  to  have  such  amazing talent  and  support  from  our  members.  The gyms  we  compete  against from  around  the country  get  to  draw  from  major  US  Cities.  It  is  amazing  that  year  after  year  our “Small Town” All  Star  Program  can  successfully compete with the gyms from “Big City” USA.  We  attribute  much  of  our success  to  the family  atmosphere  that  has  always  been  a mainstay  in  our  program.   Turners  All  Star Cheerleading  was  founded  by  sisters  Lori Moss-Wilson  and  Tracey  Moss- Koontz  along with  their  niece  Kristi  Moss-Clifford.   The founders will tell you they got the gymnastics and  cheerleading  influence  from  their Mother/Grandmother,  Nancy  Graziani-Moss. Nancy  is  affectionately  called  “Mam”  by everyone  that  knows  her.   Mam  started  all of  her  daughters  in  gymnastics  at  Turners. In  1977,  she  started  a  Tumbling  Group called  the  “South  Fork  Falcons”.   The  group trained  in  buildings  in  South  Fork  and  then participated  in  local  parades  showcasing their talents.  Mam soon took her gymnastics program  to  the  Forest  Hills School  District. Mam  recognized  the  fact  that  gymnastics would  definitely  improve  the  cheerleading program and started the gymnastics program in  1980  at  Forest  Hills.  Turners  finds  it  no coincidence that the Forest Hills Cheerleaders started having great success in the mid 80′s. Mam,  her  daughters  and  grand  daughters then  took  their gymnastics  program  to  other schools  in  the  area.   The  first  school  after Forest  Hills  was  St.  Benedicts  and  then  many others  followed.   Cheerleading  around  the area quickly grew and Western PA was put on the map in the Cheerleading World.

This  is  where  the  influence  and  how  the family ran business started and why we are at where we are, today.
