COACHES

Kendra Van Norman

Varsity Coach/ Head of Spiritline Program

 

My dance background began at the age of 5 when I started taking ballet classes at Ballet Etudes. I starred in the Nutcracker for a few years and then decided I wanted to try something new. This is when I fell in love with Cheer. Not only did I do cheer at both Sanborn Elementary and Willis Junior High, but I was also a member of the Varsity Chandler High Spiritline team for four years. After receiving my first teaching job, I started coaching at Gilbert High School where I coached Freshmen Cheer in 2010. My second year, I began to build the program and my JV team won first at state. After that I transferred to Chandler High and for 4 years I coached JV and Pom. In 2016, I was selected as the new Head Spiriitline Coach and absolutely love what it has become in such a short amount of time.

Hi, I am BreAnna. This is my first year coaching, although I have 14 years of cheerleading experience. I started competitive cheer through a local gym when I was 4 years old and went on to cheer at Chandler High. I couldn't be more excited and honored to be coaching at my alma mater.
