‘Cheerleading is my first love. As a coach, I believe that there is nothing better than watching
a stunt team hit a stunt or a cheerleader land a tumbling pass for the first time. I also believe
that practice, progression, and proper technique pave the way for achieving your goals. I hope
to bring you the information you need to improve your skills, successfully and safely, while
encouraging your love of the sport.’
