My name is Coach Ciara! I am currently a student at Lane Community College studying Dental Hygiene. I hope to become a Hygienist in a Pediatric of Family Dental office. I have a German Shepherd named Blue and she is my favorite thing in this world.
I started cheering my sixth-grade year in 2015. I was a part of the TJC team that earned two back-to-back 2nd place titles at State. I also cheered my freshman year at THS. In my time I cheered under some of the best coaches in the state, James Underwood, Cassie Wendt, Makena Archer and a few more. These coaches are what inspired me to start coaching and continue to inspire me every practice, event, and competition. In 2017, when we first started offering Minis and Youth, I was brought on to coach both teams and that's where my love for coaching the littles began. After taking a short break in 2018, I came back to coaching in 2021 as the Minis Assistant Coach. I became the Head Coach for the Minis in 2022 and also the Assistant Coach for the Junior Elite team. That season was our first year travelling to Nationals with the Jr. team and we won National Grand Champions. I am now back to focusing solely on the Minis team and our Social Media! Needless to say, I love this program and clearly just can't seem to stay away from it!
Coach Ciara is the Head Coach to the Mini's Team! She also is the Social Media Manager!
My favorite Core Value is "One Team, One Dream, One Family". At TCA, we have a strong bond with staff, athletes, and cheer families. Nothing beats the feeling of having that endless support.
