We teach with a positive reinforcement approach, helping young girls develop skills at their own pace, while building confidence and emphasizing the character skills necessary to succeed, on and off the mat. The Cheer Program is directed and instructed by Tracie Richards. Tracie Richards is an alumni cheerleader from both Michigan State University and the University of Michigan. At U-M, she was a cheer coach for nine years, taking its team to College Cheer Nationals. She is a certified tumbling instructor with several cheer safety certifications. Coach Tracie also coached for nine years at her former high school, Northville High, where she was a cheerleader and gymnast, leading its team to High School Cheer Nationals. Most recently, Coach Tracie has coached Middle School competitive cheer and headed the youth cheer program in Brighton.
Other Instructors: Cassidy Snow Cassidy has been cheering since she was in elementary school. She cheered all 4 years on the Brighton High School Varsity Cheer team. After high school, she cheered for a short time at Eastern Michigan University, when she left for coaching reasons. But, she continued to cheer for Champion Cheerleading for a year, and is currently a member of FAST staff. Cassidy was also an assistant coach for BBFC youth cheer during the 2015 season, currently nannies, and is going to school for nursing. I have prior tumbling coaching experience with Cassidy, as she assisted me with classes at Top Dog Training Facility. She is dependable and shares the same positive coaching philosophies as I do!
