Thurston REC cheer


Thurston Rec Cheer began in 2016 when James Underwood saw the need for a cheer program that serves middle school aged children.  The program since, has advanced tremendously. With the single Junior team (6th-8th graders) taking 2nd in state in 2017 & 2018. We then expanded to form a Minis (Kinder-2nd grade) and Youth(3rd -5th grade) team. Since expanding, all of our teams went on to place in the top 3  in the State in each of their divisions!   

In 2023 our two Junior Competition teams were crowned National Champions at the USA Jr Spirit Nationals in Anaheim, California and our Junior Traditional L2 team was awarded National Grand Champions, our first attendance in program history!

With award winning, passionate coaches. We are the only competitive and recreational cheerleading program in the Eugene/Springfield area designed specifically for youth athlete's 8th grade and under, Thurston Rec Cheer strives to provide the best competitive youth cheerleading and high school cheer prep program in the area. Our coaches believe in hard work, perseverance, and above all teamwork! We are here for any athlete with a passion and excitement for cheerleading!

Cheerleading changes lives

Practice like you've never won.  Perform like you've never lost


When you're on a cheer team, you're part of a family.  You train as a team, you rise and fall as a team.  You win as a team,  and you fail as a team.  Your team will always be part of your cheer family.
