Changes are coming

As of now, I am teaching by day and coaching by night. It's a long day, but it's really all I've ever known. A couple weeks ago we found out that our Middle School competitive coach is not returning for the upcoming season. So it looks like (well it's actually official) I'm the new(old) Middle School Comp. Cheer coach! I am both excited and fearful. I started coaching at the middle school level right out of high school, but it's been 3 years since I've done it. I'm so used to my high school kids that it's going to be a big change! Plus I am going to miss being the Varsity assistant CC coach. I get to resume my position when my MS season ends, but I will be sad to miss their progress. But I guess it's a whole new adventure for me! So in honor of my incredible Varsity girls, here are some pictures I've taken of them this season.

One of our pyramids that we do!

Before every game we "work the corner" haha sounds so bad I know, but the girls are just greeting the fans!

Also working a corner...that's one of my baby sophomores on the top!

During one of our chants!

I'm looking forward to the last few weeks I have with them. I probably wont be with them much again until the end of January! They have progressed so much this season. We went from having 2 solid standing back tucks to having 7 now (we're still working on it!) and they have made so much progress in their stunting! These last few weeks I'm going to be focusing on getting them ready for competitive. They are one of the most elite teams in the state, and I can't wait to see what they will do this season!
