Ximena

5 words that describe your teaching style:

Patient, caring, fun, passionate, and creative.

Most rewarding part of teaching youth:

The most rewarding part of being a coach is the joy I get back from seeing the kids enjoy cheer, it takes me back to when I was in cheer. I love giving back and sharing my passion.

3 hobbies you have outside of cheer:

My hobbies outside of cheer would definitely include music and getting creative with my time. I enjoy shopping and getting dolled up for brunch and dinner dates!

What have you taken with you from being in cheer:

Cheer taught me confidence, dedication and the true meaning of teamwork. It taught me to never give up because with time anything can be accomplished. It helped me believe in myself in every aspect of my life. Because of cheer, I am the strong and ambitious woman I am today, something I have always dreamed to be.

Reason you started cheering:

I started coaching cheer because I found a new love for teaching the sport I love!

5 words that describe your teaching style:

fun, crazy, inclusive, creative, and always loud.

Most rewarding part of teaching youth:

The most rewarding part of teaching is when I get students that comeback when they’re older, to let me know they had fun in my classes.

My hobbies outside of cheer are playing with special effect makeup!

What have you taken with you from being in cheer:

Something I’ve taken from cheer is how much of an impact coaches make on the students. I view things as a student and coach since I was in Young Champions when I was younger.

Alli

How has Cheer benefited you most:

Cheer has benefited me most by improving my teamwork skills. Cheer leading taught me how to be a team player!

Reason you started cheering:

I started coaching because I love seeing students excited about being active and having fun!

5 words that describe your teaching style:

Exciting, loud, energetic, inclusive, and peppy

Most rewarding part of teaching youth:

The most rewarding part of coaching is watching my students grow up and getting to see them advance through levels as they get older. I love being able to help kids express themselves in a new way!

I love to paint when I am not cheering! I also enjoy thrifting, listening to music, and binge watching shows on Netflix! 

What have you taken with you from being in cheer?

I think the most important thing I’ve taken away from being in cheer is being able to relate to students. Coaching has taught me a great deal about patience. I try my hardest to be considerate of the students and their needs, especially those who may not feel as confident. These classes are for the kids and it is important to me that they are having fun.

Chris Sacha

How has Karate benefited you most?

Something that has benefitted me from karate, which I’ll talk about a little later, is being able to put together my martial arts practice with my musical practice, especially since music is my career outside of teaching for Young Champions.

Reason you started doing Karate?

Part of my interest in karate came from the cartoons I watched in my youth… a lot of which had fighting scenes in some episodes, if not every episode; I received a flyer for YC’s program during school and wanted to learn how to fight from there.

words that describe your teaching style? 

Technical, but practical, art form

Most rewarding part of teaching youth?

The most rewarding part of being an instructor is being able to share my knowledge with the students and seeing them eager to learn what’s next.
