Who are the FCA Cheerleaders?
Our cheerleaders are a special group of kids! The teams are comprised of girls from over 20 different local school districts. They have been taught to work together as a team and the importance of working hard to reach goals. However, they have fun being a cheerleader and many have developed friendship that will last for decades. Some of the girls have been cheering at FCA for over 10 years. There are still members of our ‘original peewee’ team that started in 2001 active and cheering at FCA!
Who Coaches the FCA Gems?
We have an experienced coaching staff that works with all the FCA teams. The cheerleading coaches are certified by USASF up to level 5. We also have great gymnastics instructors that work with the cheerleaders on the tumbling needed for their cheer routines. ALL of the members of the coaching staff work hard to make sure each individual works toward their individual goals while learning to be a productive, valued member of their cheer team.
