Galaxy Allstars is widely regarded as the top Allstar Cheer Gym in Northern Ireland.
Established as Dynamix Trampoline Club in 2004, the club shifted its focus to cheer in 2007, and the current program which entails Cheer, Trampoline, Tumbling and Dance is thriving.
At Galaxy, we believe that every member is a star in the making. We appreciate that every child is unique, and our goal is to help them grow into the best version of themselves. In addition to developing them physically, our program will help each child develop their teamwork skills, leadership skills, self-discipline and confidence, helping prepare them for life beyond the gym doors.
Our home is now Pennyburn Industrial estate in Derry. Here, our facility houses a full-size sprung floor, four Olympic trampolines, DMT, fast trak, tumbletrak and an array of other equipment to maximise our time in the gym.
Galaxy provides classes and teams for both competitive and recreational athletes. Over the years, we've had kids from our program on the UK, Ireland and Northern Ireland National teams attending World Championships, we've won competitions in Switzerland and throughout the UK and Ireland, and taken athletes to the USA to train.
We continue to work with some of the most highly-respected coaches and choreographers around the world to give our teams the best chance of success.
Galaxy Allstars was founded in 2007 by Aoibheann Carlin.
Originally a trampoline coach in the city, Aoibheann worked her way up the ranks to the epitome of her career in trampolining - attending Junior World Championships as part of the Irish National Coaching Team in 2007.
Following this, she discovered the sport of Cheer and, aware that there was no provision in the city, undertook her first qualifications and started coaching a small team and University group at Magee Campus.
The program continued to grow, and our own premises followed. Throughout this time, Aoibheann continued working full-time for Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service as an operational firefighter.
She was one of the first Cheer Coaches in Northern Ireland, and coached Team Ireland in 2011 and 2014, and Team Northern Ireland in 2020. Currently president of the National Governing Body for Cheer and Dance in Northern Ireland, she remains committed to helping the sport grow nationally.
