Thurston junior cheer


Thurston Junior Cheer began 8 years ago when James Underwood saw the need for a cheer program that serves middle school aged children.  The program since, has advanced tremendously. With the 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. Under the new supervision of our Program President, Makena Archer, all of our teams went on to place in the top 3  in the State in each of their divisions!   

With award winning, passionate coaches. We are the only recreational cheerleading program in the Eugene/Springfield area designed specifically for youth athletes 8th grade and under, Thurston Junior 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 team work! We are here for any athlete with a passion or 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.
