JOINING PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

As a cheer coach, you are part of a larger community--the spirit industry. Thousands of event producers, cheer vendors, organizations, gyms, and teams comprise the spirit industry. The longer you coach, the more you need to know. Why join professional organizations?
  • Membership in professional organizations gives the individual cheer coach an immediate network of other spirit professionals.
  • Belonging to a professional organization puts you in contact with others who share your passion, your joys, and your frustrations.
  • Attendance at conferences gives coaches the opportunity to learn from others who are leaders in the spirit industry.
  • Continuing education should be a major concern for cheer coaches. Professional organizations often provide opportunities for continuing education and professional development.
  • Membership often provides newsletters that keep members updated on the spirit industry.
  • Future employers appreciate prospective employees' interest in staying updated on current issues and developments in the spirit industry.
  • Professional organizations may offer additional insurance coverage.
  • Becoming involved as a committee member or board member helps develop leadership skills that will be valuable as you grow in the industry.
  • An element of coaching involves educating parents and cheerleaders. Active membership in a professional organization gives you the tools to provide your parents and cheerleaders with the latest news, tools of the trade, and safety information.

Look for local and state professional organizations but keep in mind that not every state has a cheer coaches' organization. States with cheer coaches' groups often offer yearly conferences and quarterly workshops. Research regional and national organizations. These will have large memberships and may offer more opportunities for workshops and networking.
