Coach Alyssa started her athletic endeavors with softball in Humble.  She was an extreme softball player and at age 7 was the 1st draft pick of her league.   She wanted to expand her opportunities and chose to try tumbling.   While tumbling at the gym by her house, her coach approached her parents to see if she would consider being on an All-Star Cheer team which she was more than excited to try.   This is when she found her true passion in sports.  Coach Alyssa has been an All-Star Cheerleader since the age of 8.   She has competed on teams from level 2-4.  She is a National Jump Champion and Synchronized Tumbling Champion. She has been an essential part of several National Championship teams.  She made the Jr High School Squad at Atascocita Middle School but found her passion for the All-Star arena out weighed her desire for school cheer.  She has coached all-star cheer teams for 5 years now and loves the opportunity to work with cheerleaders from age 3-18.  She can spot tumbling to level 3 and can coach teams to level 4.   She has a tremendous passion for the sport of cheerleading and loves to spread that passion to those in the gym.
