Beach Cheer Athletics is owned and operated by it’s two momprenuer owners, Suzanne McLay and Anne-Marie Joyce. Truly a small idea that sparked into a flame, BCA has tripled in size over the past two years. With 25 years experience each in the cheer world and friends since high school, Suzanne and Anne-Marie strive to provide a safe, fun, and challenging environment for athletes to develop and grow their love for the sport. At BCA we believe every child can have a meaningful experience in cheer; building their fitness level, developing self esteem, cultivating teamwork skills, and making lifelong friends that help shape the unique individual they will become.
Competitive cheer may not be what you are looking for. We have many recreational tumbling and cheer classes, as well as a pre-competitive stream. Whatever you are looking for, we have a class for you at BCA!
We have become a leading resource for tumbling in Toronto. If your child likes to ‘flip’ but doesn’t want a traditional gymnastics class, BCA will be able to support their interest. We have many athletes coming to us to train from other disciplines and/or sports such as parkour, diving, and acro dance.
Tumbling is a fun activity for any athlete at any age or level.


We are proud to be the only gym with a Toronto address! Although the sport of Cheerleading has been very popular in the surrounding areas for many years, we are the first gym to offer all-star competitive cheer for youth ages 3-18 in the City of Toronto.
Nestled in the east end with easy access to major highways and neighbourhoods we are happy to open our doors to Toronto and share our passion with this great city!


Cheerleading is a team sport which involves gymnastic, dance, jumps, and stunting skills.
The goal of Beach Cheer Athletics is to teach the fundamentals of cheerleading in a safe and fun environment, that will foster a love and passion for the sport.
Cheer is the fastest growing sport for females (but loads of males love cheer too!) in North America. The participation has tripled worldwide in the past 8 years and is only gaining more and more momentum. With the fast and furious pace of growth in cheer as a sport, there are many exciting things ahead! As a club, we strive to be up to date on all the latest in the cheer world and we take pride in making sure we hire experienced, passionate staff, and support their continued education in order to provide the best experience possible to our athletes and their families.
When you cheer with us, you become part of our BEACH family.


We offer a variety of programs for all ages and levels including: competitive and recreational teams, tumbling classes, birthday parties, summer camps, adult bootcamp, and more!

There is always room at the BEACH for you! Life IS better at the BEACH.
