Perseverance, Integrity, Commitment, Inspire....CHEER

Through the eyes of a coach......
Our first bid to STATE!!  I keep replaying this day over and over in my head.  My 1st grade cheerleading squad at the young age of six, just got their VERY FIRST bid.   The words that come to mind when I think of these girls are Perseverance, Integrity, Commitment and Inspiration. 

As a former college cheerleader and professional dancer, I expect nothing but the BEST.  From day one, I knew we had a tough road ahead of us.  It was my job to make them the best that they can be.  Nothing comes easy, it takes hard work and dedication. These little girls had a dream to qualify for State and I was determined to make it come true.
I have performed in front of thousands of people over the last 33 years.  I was rarely ever nervous to perform, but as a coach, it is a different story.  Through the eyes of a coach, you DREAM BIG for your team.  You know their potential.  Its a matter of them wanting it more than ever.  My team never stopped trying, never stopped believing and never gave up. 

Seeing their sparkly eyes light up when our team name was announced as state qualifiers was PRICELESS.  That exact moment was worth all of the months, days, hours and minutes spent in the practice warehouse.
What makes it even more special, is that I get to share this experience with my DAUGHTER.  People ask me all of the time, how I do it working full time as a school teacher, Beachbody coach and raising young three children.  My answer...I do it for HER.

Through the eyes of a Coach...I'm not going to tell you its going to be easy, I'm telling you its going to be worth it.  Keep dreaming girls, DREAM BIG!!
