My daughter (11 y.o.-12 in May)and I are moving to Minden, NV in Feb and I am interested in signing her up, but also in coaching. I was the head coach of our Jr Pee Wee team here in NH and assisted 2 yrs before that for a different league. I had a brand new team this past year, most of my girls had never cheered or danced. I had to start them from scratch with motions, etc but we worked hard and ended up placing 3rd in the state out of 11 qualifying teams and 5th in the region out of 10 qualifying teams.
I am an NCA Certified Coach and would love the opportunity to speak with you further regarding a coaching position with your organization.
I may be contacted via email at or by phone at 603-512-2709.
Kind Regards,
