What it means to be a Pacific Cheerleader
Pacific cheerleaders are self motivated in all aspects of life. Our athletes have personal drive. They work hard and achieve their goals. Pacific cheerleaders have a positive attitude, are team players and are upstanding role models.

Our Mission
Pacific Cheerleaders Limited strives to help each athlete achieve their goals and reach their potential as a cheerleader and as an individual. Our athletes will learn life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, goal setting, self confidence, trust in their self and others, and leadership. Our goal is to create champions in and out of the gym!

Our Coaches
Our coaches work to share their love and passion for cheerleading with others. Anyone can teach someone the skills, but it takes someone with real enthusiasm to be an amazing coach and to pass on the excitement and pure enjoyment of cheerleading.
