VIKINGS COMMUNITY CHEERLEADING
Bringing Cheer to Our Community Through Service!
Vikings Community Cheerleading, located in University Place, Washington, is a no-cut, non-profit, recreational cheerleading squad for ages 6-16. We were founded in 2009 on the belief that cheerleading can and should promote positive values, build self-esteem, and foster a sense of community. VCC is dedicated to supporting and promoting our local Junior Vikings Football teams, providing community service in and around University Place, and cheering competitively at a Junior Recreational level.
VCC took 3rd place at Junior Recreational State in the Junior Tumbling division in 2019!

COACH KAYLEE NESS
Hi, I am Kaylee Ness, I am 20 years old, and I am the Head Coach of Vikings Community Cheer. I am currently attending Pacific Lutheran University where I am working toward getting my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have been involved in cheer since I was in seventh grade where I started out on University Place Junior Vikings. I then moved on to cheer for the Curtis Junior High School 9th grade 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. I wanted to stress that while I may be considered a young coach, I bring a lot of new and fresh ideas to VCC. 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 third season coaching VCC to continue to help kids grow and be involved in their community.
Hi, I am Emma Alexander, I am 18 years old and one of the head coaches of Vikings Community Cheer. I am currently a Freshman at Tacoma Community College. I started my cheer career with VCC in second grade and was able to cheer with them for 7 years. I then had the opportunity to try out for the Curtis High School cheer team in 9th grade, where I cheered throughout my entire high school career. I've competed in the High School State cheer competition 3 times and I've competed for a national title in Orlando, Florida twice. I have been cheering for a total of 11 years and competing for a total of 8. Although I may be considered a young coach, I am able to bring many new ideas to the squad. I am dedicated to this team and I am so excited to see what they can bring! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to coach these amazing athletes who are so excited and willing to learn. I can’t wait to use my knowledge of cheer and years of experience to not only help these kids succeed as cheerleaders, but also to teach them to be helpful members of our community!
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. 💙
Hi, I'm Beckie, and my daughter Brettine loves being a member of VCC. Brettine has enjoyed each year cheering for sideline and then moving on to competition season! I love that our squad teaches the girls to give back. My daughters and I have been in University Place since they started Kindergarten, and we will stay here until they graduate from Curtis High School. In this family we bleed blue.💙 I can't wait for you to feel the joy of bringing cheer to our community through service. GO VIKS!
Hi, my name is Rachel. My daughter Ava has learned so much from VCC. Being a military family, it's hard finding a place to "fit". VCC quickly became that place for Ava, instilling self confidence, a sense of work ethic, and camaraderie between the kids of varying ages. We've been in this community since 2015 and hope to stay through Ava's graduation in 2025 where VCC will no doubt continue to flourish and grow while giving back so much to the community and our children.
Hi! I'm Tara and my daughter, Kaylee, has been cheering for 4 years and this is her 2nd year with VCC. Besides all of the amazing friends she has made, she has learned so any valuable lessons from serving her community, learning and practicing good sportsmanship, and that practice and hard work pays off. We look forward to another fun and exciting sideline season cheering on the Jr. Vikings Football teams, and Kaylee's favorite time which is competition season and getting all the cheers and music stuck in my head again! GO VIKS!
Hello! My name is Kati and my daughter, Rielee, is a cheerleader for VCC. Last year was her very first year cheerleading and we had such an amazing experience! I had the privilege of watching her grow into a confident, strong, and happy little person with the love and support of her new friends. My favorite aspect of VCC is the focus on giving back to the community in which we live and love! Through the board, I hope to make an even greater impact. Go VIKS!
Hi, I am Charisma. My family and I have been apart of the University Place community for 16 years. My oldest graduated from Curtis and my last three kiddos are well on their way in doing the same! I am proud to be a part of the VCC team! Both of my daughters, Saihdee and Syriahs, are in the program and have gained so much from this awesome group! Building confidence, teamwork skills, and fun are just a few of the great characteristics that VCC has to offer! So looking forward to another GREAT season! "GO VIKS!"
