Coaching Philosophy Our coaching style and leadership values are summed up using quotes

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” -Benjamin Franklin

  • Helping children realize they can accomplish anything in life with a desire to learn
  • If we teach them positive lessons, through sports, such as playing by the rules, our young athletes will learn to live by the rules
  • We believe the cheerleaders are daughters/sons first, students second and athletes third. 
  • We prepare youngsters to face the future by developing themselves through honesty, responsibility, self-discipline, positive aspirations, and academic preparedness.
  • We believe in developing leaders

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”  -Father James Keller

  • Commitment to being kind to others
  • We congratulate each other and celebrate success because we are equal and as a team we can accomplish more. 
  • Lead by example: be a great role model
  • Teamwork: if someone’s flame is shining bright that doesn’t mean you’re flame is dimmer
  • Decisions will be based on what is good for the individual as well as what is good for the squad, the cheer program and Utah Velocity Cheer Programs
  • Uphold and promote team spirit and respect for your school and peers
  • Support good relations in the community

“What would you intend to do if you knew you could not fail?” -Unknown

  • Discipline to work hard and go for what they believe in
  • It’s not always about winning. It’s also about learning how to lose, preparing for life’s challenges ahead, growing from and learning from the overall experience through the sport of Cheerleading. 
  • We believe in interscholastic sports being a learning vehicle for youth 
  • Build confidence through seeing something til completion and knowing you can do it

Another great defining quote and what defines our style of coaching is: 

“Nothing was ever accomplished without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • If it’s worth doing, do it with enthusiasm. Give it your all every single time 
  • We believe in fitness being fun. Fitness is not a punishment
