Valley Cheer Athletics started 10 years ago as Annapolis Valley Cheer Club, and has been a fabulous journey for director Megan Shepherd.
What started as a love for cheerleading and a passion to work with youth, has turned into one of the largest, most successful, cheerleading programs in the Annapolis Valley.
At Valley Cheer Athletics, safety, quality of instruction, and fun are our top priorities. Coaches will help athletes set and achieve personal and team goals. At VCA you will see your child grow both as an athlete and as a person.
We have Class Helpers, Junior Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Head Coaches at our facility. Many of our coaches have been with VCA from the very beginning and help contribute to our wonderful, loving, family atmosphere.
Coaches are USASF certified in Stunts, Tumbling and Tosses, they also hold
gymnastics coaching certifications, First Aid, CPR C, Canfitpro, and CDTA qualifications as well as Masters Degree in Sport and Exercise Science, Dance Teacher Training Diploma, specialization courses in sport psychology, prevention and care of athletic
injuries, and nutrition, biomechanics,
motor learning, exercise physiology, personal training, and child development.
We also have over Junior Staff Members,
currently working towards their USASF credentials. Our Senior and Junior
Staff work together to provide the best training to your child.
Our coaches are dedicated to the vision of Valley Cheer Athletics, and strive to teach athletes skills and confidence, and provide them with the life lessons and memories that will last them a lifetime. Athletes not only have pride in their own accomplishments, but pride in the accomplishments of the entire VCA family, led by our amazing and talented coaches.
Our biggest success in coaching cheerleading is to see the difference that we make in the lives of the youth we work with. The VCA staff is simply the best! #WeAreValley
