Amanda McKissick - Team Director / CoachI cheered my whole life until college. I grew up loving everything there is about cheer. I grew up around great coaches, including both my parents, Aunts and Uncles and family friends. My brother is a coach of many different sports, it’s in our blood as a family. I have been coaching cheerleading for about 10 years. I joined Performance Cheer Academy in November 2016 as Jody’s Team Director/Coach. I am loving learning all the new things that Allstar cheer has to offer. I love all the cheerleaders and love the family that we become throughout the season. I love to watch them grow and become the best person/cheerleader that they can be, and allow the things that they learn in cheer to follow them throughout their entire lives.
Kalem Calien II - CoachI started cheering in high school. I cheered for Cheer Mania Competition Team. After two consecutive years of cheering for high school, I was offered to join North Carolina A&T Gold Squad Competitive Cheerleading Team. I majored in Performing Arts and Technical Theater. I started my coaching career at Cheer Carolina Allstars, where my athletes won many competitions. While at CCA I developed more advanced coaching skills. After many successful years at CCA, I graduated from NC A&T and moved to Philadelphia where I was offered to coach at Cheertime Allstars where I learned countless skills in business practices that I still use today. In August 2014, I moved to Ga with hopes to enhance my training in improvisation skills in the field of dance. My ultimate goal is to make the transition between dance, cheer and gymnastics seemingly effortless.
Kaylee Breedlove - CoachKaylee is currently a Junior at UGA studying Psychology with a minor in Human and Family Development. She has been involved in the cheerleading world for 8 years now. She has experience from both athlete and coach perspectives. While attending Morgan County High School I cheered for both sideline and competition squads while also participating on Pro Cheer’s Level 4 co-ed team. She is primarily a flyer, however has many years of experience in both main and side basing as well. “This is my second year with OGC and I am so excited to get the opportunity to share my passion for cheerleading with every athlete in our program.
Cameron Smith-Rosemond - CoachI cheered at Archer High School, Young Harris College, Future Extreme Allstar and Pro Cheer Allstar. I cheer because it helps me get away from normal life and preoccupies my mind. I am passionate about cheering and coaching. I care about the athletes. I bring lots of energy to the gym every time!
Hunter Emmons - CoachI have been cheering for 3 years now. I’ve spent the past 3 years coaching at many different gyms and visiting as many as I possibly can. I have exposed myself to many different coaching styles. I’m in my second year of cheering at UGA. I love coaching all ages and love seeing someone determined to achieve their skills. I believe that if you are not busting every once in a while, that you are not pushing yourself. I am big on goals/expectations: SET THEM, ATTACK THEM, AND EXCEED THEM!!!!
Riley Hoggard - CoachI lettered as a 4 year Varsity Freedom High School cheerleader in Tampa, Fl and was named captain my senior year. I cheered at Florida Wildcat Allstar for 3 years for Levels 4/5. This upcoming year will be my second year being a cheerleader on the UGA Coed Team
Alley Skelton - CoachI am currently a Senior at East Jackson Comprehensive HS. This is my second year as a Cheerleading Coach. I have been cheering Allstar for almost 4 years now. Prior to Allstar Cheer, I experienced sideline cheer for football. I feel in love with this sport once I started competing. Almost every week, I spend more time at the gym than I do my own home. I love working with children as well as new cheerleaders. Just being able to see what I am capable of coaching cheerleaders accomplish their skills gives me joy. I am extremely excited and motivated to see the Performance Cheer Academy program grow, and the Minis/Sparks is the first step of helping the program be successful. I have 2 younger sisters and have learned to be patient as well as how to explain things differently. I am so excited for the season and cannot wait to see what this season brings, and what everyone can accomplish!
Tori Morgan - CoachI am Sophomore at North Oconee High School. This is my first year as a coach, but I have been cheering Allstar for 2 years now. Before starting Allstar cheer, I had experience with gymnastics and sideline cheer. I feel in love with this sport once I started. I spend more time at the gym than I do at my house. I love working with children and hope to, one day, go in to a career involving children. I am extremely motivated to grow The Performance Cheer Academy program, and the Minis/Sparks is the first step! I have 2 sisters and have learned to be very patient. I am so excited for the upcoming season and can’t wait to see what this season brings!!
