Elite Academy Opens Doors to New Locations!
The Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce is so excited to see a community staple like Elite Academy move to such a great new location and join the Chamber family! Elite Academy has been in Siloam Springs since 2011 and was started by husband and wife Mark & Elicia Williamson. Elite Academy provides cheerleading, gymnastics, and tumbling instruction for ages 2-18. “We started our gym because we found that there wasn’t a lot of options for young girls in Siloam Springs to compete in a sport they love. We began with cheerleading and tumbling and in 2018, we purchased Upward Bound to add gymnastics to our offerings” said Elicia.
Mark and Elicia have a vision to “touch as many children’s lives as possible while instilling values such as hard work, loyalty, and teamwork through the love of the sport”. Mark Williamson was born and raised in Siloam Springs. Elicia was raised in Decatur and has spent over 20 years teaching the sport of cheerleading to youth programs, junior high programs, high school programs, all-star programs, and she is also currently the cheer coach at John Brown University. “Our hope is that by moving locations we can give our children more space to learn and give us more opportunities to offer more class and team options” stated Elicia.
Mark and Elicia plan to offer a formal grand opening once Arkansas moves into the next phases of reopening. To enroll your child in classes today you can visit their website here or you can reach Mark and Elicia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 479-957-3309.
