To Lisa Aucoin for being a positive catalyst in bringing our country together over the past 2-1/2 years. To Doug Martin for taking leadership in the organization of Team Canada, our country’s elite athletes. And, thanks to Don Moffatt’s seasoned leadership over the past 13 months; guiding us all to this position of solidarity through collaboration.

With Cheer Canada recently revising its By-laws with the input and support of the International Cheer Union (ICU) and with cheerleading being recognized by the IOC as a provisional sport in the Olympics, our Cheer Canada Board of Directors is excited to lead the development of best in class sport governance in Cheerleading. “With the amazing depth of knowledge and passion for our sport that exists from coast to coast, the future of our sport is bright”, said Jim Greenough, President.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments.
