Do you hear THUNDER?  Sounds like THUNDER at THUNDER ELITE!  We are not talking about the weather, we are talking about the sound of cheerleadng, gymnastics, and dance!  The sound of  laughter and fun can be heard in this 14,000 square foot facility coming from childrenof all ages. Thunder Elite opened in March 2007 and expanded into a NEW LOCATION in 2011, inclusive of an extremely experienced and interactive staff.  We call that staff the Thunder Elite Team. Thunder Elite provides a rewarding and enjoyable experience while building self-esteem. We help each child strive to learn and perfect new skills at his or her own pace.

Thunder Elite currently competes extensively in cheerleading, gymnastics and hip-hop dance.  All of our teams have competed at some of the LARGEST and most PRESTIGIOUS evenst in the country.  Thunder Elite prides itself in teaching TEAMWORK and making every minute fun!  Your child can experience that through hard work in class or participating in the many other activities offered.  Those activities include Summer Day Camp, Parents Night Out (every Friday) and our FUN and MEMORABLE Birthday Parties (every Saturday or Sunday).

Thunder Elite is not only FUN, but offers an opportunity to develop skills and gain confidence through the classes offered.  Nicole Podraza, an individual who believes in leadership, mentorship and guidance, owns Thunder Elite.  This role model to children and young adults has been coaching in the Bryan/College Station area since 1999, but began coaching in 1995 at the age of 15.   As a gymnast, she competed for Bela Karolyi through level 9. Upon leaving gymnastics, she was a cheerleader for 7 years including one year at Sam Houston State University.  At SHSU she was a part of the  national championship team that won College UCA Nationals in 1997.   She has coached competitive cheerleading, competitive gymnastics, and competitive hip-hop. Her gymnasts and her cheer and hip-hop teams have achieved many awards, including national titles.  Along with her students, she and her staff have been awarded Coaching Staff of the Year by American CheerPower  in 2006 ,2007, and 2014!  These accolades hang from the walls in Thunder Elite not only for recognition, but also as a constant reminder that hard work, a positive attitude,  and the will to never give up does pay off!

Our location provides  space for classes, temas, as well as the other activities we offer.   Classes, Summer Day Camp, Parents Night Out and Birthday Parties are all taught and supervised by a staff that is background checked, along with CPR and First Aid Certifications.  Your loved ones are in SAFE hands and are provided quality instruction.
