COACH KAYLEE NESS

Head Coach

Hi, I am Kaylee Ness, I am 25 years old, and I am the Head Coach of Vikings Community Cheer.

 

I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in spring of 2021 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and I am now a 1st grade teacher in Franklin Pierce School District. I am blessed to say that I am now entering my fourth year as an elementary school teacher.

 

I have been involved in cheer since I was in seventh grade where I started out on University Place Junior Vikings, which is now VCC. I then moved on to cheer for the Curtis Junior High School 9th grade Varsity team, an Allstar Competitive team from ages 15 to 19 years old, and the Curtis High School Varsity cheer team my Junior and Senior years. I have experienced 5 seasons of sideline cheer, 5 seasons of school and recreational competitive cheer, and 4 years of Allstar Competitive Cheer. I have had the opportunities to be a member of teams that competed in High School Cheerleading State and Nationals both years I competed, and in Allstar Nationals and Summit twice.

 

When it comes to coaching cheerleading, I have been the head coach of VCC since I gradutated high school in 2017. I am now entering season 8 of coaching this incredible program. In addition, myself, alongside my previous assistant coaches, have led our teams to claim 3 National Champion titles across two different divisions at The Quest Nationals in Orlando, FL in only 2 years. I have also been certified in stunting and tumbling as well as hold current USASF credentialing. I am responsible and dedicated and want nothing more than to see Vikings Community Cheer succeed.

 

I am looking forward to bringing my love for cheer, and my years of knowledge and experience, into my eighth season coaching VCC to continue to help kids grow and be involved in their community.

COACH LAURA BOYLE

Assistant Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Laura Boyle. I am so excited to be the Assistant Coach of Vikings Community Cheer!

After receiving my associates degree, I became a flight attendant and I'm so thankful to say that I've been flying for Alaska Airlines for nearly 10 years. I have travelled all over the country and even lived in Alaska.

Apart from my flying career, I am a mother of two amazing kids. My son Noah is 10 and will be attending intermediate school next year here in UPSD. My daughter Mila is 4 and will be attending Pre-Kindergarten next year.

Cheer has always been a part of my life and began when I was young. I fell in love with the sport and found myself at every cheer clinic, summer camp, and tumbling class. In 7th grade I cheer for the Jr. Viks now known as VCC! I made the Curtis Jr. High cheer team in 8th grade but soon transferred to Bellarmine Prep where I cheered for their Varsity squad my freshman year. While in high school, I participated in gymnastics to improve my tumbling and flexibility. I cheered for Varsity sideline and competition all 4 years in high school and absolutely loved it!

My career is coaching cheerleading began early on in high school with Run to Win Outreach. I began coaching youth cheerleading camps alongside former cheerleaders from UW. Go Dawgs! In addition, I began coaching cheerleading at the Tacoma YMCA as well as gymnastics at Black Hills Gymnastics. I'm so grateful to be a part of VCC as this is very full circle for me. I am beyond excited to help lead our teams this season. My passion for cheer has even inspired my daughter to join cheer!

I look forward to getting to know everyone and bring joy, laughter, inspiration, and creativity  to this team!

FLORENCE MCDONALD

The last thing I ever thought I'd be is a cheer mom! My daughter, Zaryah, fell in love on day one, watching her work so hard and seeing her confidence grow made me fall right along with her. VCC's commitment to inclusion, building up with positive encouragement and community service, is what makes it an organization I am proud to be a part of. 💙

ERIN BETHEL

Secretary

Hi, I'm Erin, this is our third year with Vikings Community Cheerleading and from the moment our daughter joined – she found her sport!  Over the last few years, it has been a joy and something extremely special to see the athletes evolve as a team and individuals - both on and off the mat.  I love how VCC is a place where anyone can find family and community and grow as an athlete.  I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished so far as a program and look forward to more exciting challenges and adventures! GO BIG BLUE!

My daughter Crimson has been wanting to cheer since she could talk, always looking up to her big cousin. I am excited to have joined the board last year as Treasurer and I am looking forward to continuing to support  this amazing organization in any way I can!

VIKINGS COMMUNITY CHEER SIDELINE TEAM INFORMATION

Live to Cheer

Each year as spring begins, Vikings Community Cheerleading begins preparation for our sideline season cheering on the Junior Vikings Football teams. Practices begin in May with a summer break at the end of June. We resume in July and continue our season practices through the end of September. We cheer at both home and away games every Saturday starting at the end of August through the end of October. Our mini half season sideline team will attend one practice a week starting in July and will only attend the first half of all home games.

VCC cheers for the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade Vikings football teams. We split our squad into three teams then assign each squad to cheer at one grade-level game each weekend, rotating which grade-levels we cheer for every weekend. For this, we use a rotation schedule, so each week the grade that each squad cheers for changes to allow our cheerleaders to experience cheering for different football teams. Since we cheer on a rotation schedule, we unfortunately cannot place our cheerleaders to cheer only for siblings/family members games.

To be eligible to cheer with VCC's full season team, all interested participants must be at least 6 years of age as of August 31st. For our half season mini team, all interest participants must be at least 4 years of age as of August 31. The sideline teams for VCC are no-cut, so we welcome all who are interested. Throughout the season, we expect that our cheerleaders demonstrate extreme dedication and positive attitudes working towards uplifting each other and their community. We reserve the right to remove any athlete(s) at any time for any violation of our Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to decline any athlete(s) new registration who has been in violation of our Code of Conduct at any time in the past.

VIKINGS ELITE COMPETITION TEAM INFORMATION

Born to Compete

Each year as the sideline season begins, Vikings Community Cheerleading also starts preparation for our competition season. Practices begin in mid-May with a summer break at the end of June through the end of July, then we resume in July and continue our season through March of the following year. We participate in

5-6 competitions in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area between December and February. There is an additional fee for competition that varies from year to year.

 
To be eligible to compete with VCC, all cheerleaders ages 8-13 must have actively participated in the current year’s sideline season and be 8 years of age as of August 31st. The cheerleaders must have also demonstrated extreme dedication and positive attitudes throughout the entirety of the sideline season. All cheerleaders ages 14 and up are not required to participate in the sideline season to be a part of the competition team. All cheerleaders will also partake in tryouts to determine placement on one of our two competition teams. We do reserve the right to ask cheerleaders to sit out for competition season if we are noticing a lack of dedication and/or skill level that is below the rest of the team, but we will always give cheerleaders an opportunity first. We reserve the right to remove any athlete(s) at any time for any violation of our Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to decline any athlete(s) new registration who has been in violation of our Code of Conduct at any time in the past.
