The creation of Extreme All Starz is the tale of two sisters, Meredith and Judith. Meredith began her coaching career in 1989 as the head coach of the Park Ridge High School cheerleading team. Her reason for doing so was to coach her youngest sister, Judith DeRosa. Meredith led PRHS to win many national titles from 1989-1997.
In 1997, after about a decade of success with PRHS, Meredith decided it was time to continue her coaching career in Suffern, New York, the area in which she was raising her children. She handed her title as head coach of PRHS to none other than her youngest sister Judy, who had been her assistant coach for 3 years and the head coach to the Park Ridge Middle School cheerleading team for 4 years. At this time, Meredith handed down one title and assumed another as the Director of Cheerleading for the Suffern Midget Mounties Recreational Program. In 1998, she became the Director of Cheerleading for the Rockland County Pop Warner League.
From 1997-2003, Judy, continued the success the PRHS cheerleading team, while Meredith transformed Suffern Rec into an ever successful cheerleading program that won many national titles and defeated teams across the country in the Rec Division. Even though both Meredith and Judy were busy with their respective families and cheerleading teams, the two sisters always came back together to help and support one another. Judy choreographed the routines for Suffern Rec, while Meredith continued to help PRHS with the execution of their routine.
In 2003, Meredith and Judy decided it was time to come back together. This time as co-owners and head coaches of their very own all-star program, Extreme All Starz. They continued coaching PRHS and Suffern Rec at this time as well. 2003-2004 is marked down in history as the most successful year for both PRHS and Suffern Rec; their legacies still remain. That same year marks the creation of the Extreme All Starz, where two families finally came back together as one.
Each year following the establishment, the Extreme All Starz family grew and more teams were added to the program. In 2012, Meredith and Judy opened their own 9,000 sq. ft. gym in Blauvelt, New York, titled the Extreme Athletic Center. That same year they added their first level five team to their all-star program and competed at the Cheerleading Worlds. They have taken one or more Level 5 teams to Worlds every year since. In 2013, they expanded to a brand new 13,000 sq. ft. facility just a street away from their first home, which is the current home of the Extreme All Starz.
To this day, Meredith and Judy continue their success as owners at the Extreme Athletic Center.
Long story short, Extreme All Starz is always and will always be about family.
