My Students

My students include 20 cheerleaders who range in ages from 10-14 with varying ability levels and experience. We practice almost year round to prepare to cheer on our football and basketball teams. We also compete in our local spirit competition, and in the last 4 years, these girls have placed 1st two times and 2nd once.

They come from a small town school that has big town spirit.

These girls have made an impact in this community with their energy!

My Project

My cheerleaders practice almost year round in order to train for football, basketball, and competition seasons. Many of my cheerleaders have never stunted before, and the stunt stand will help them with safety and proper technique.

Learning to safely stunt on the ground leads to confident flyers in the air.

We would use the stunt stand for the cheerleaders to learn the proper techniques of stunting. This reduces the risk of injury as the cheerleader is still on the ground. They become confident in their ability before other cheerleaders pick them up into the air. Help us to stunt safely!
