Spotlight On Cheer Eruption All-Stars: An Interview with Anne Gorman

1) How long have you been in the cheerleading world, and how long have you been coaching?

When I was five years old, my mom was looking for a way to “curb my abundant energy”. Little did she know, by signing me up to be a cheerleader she sparked my passion. I immediately fell in love with cheer! My first experience in the cheerleading world was as a cheerleader for the local youth football league. I immediately fell in love with the sport!

 
I have been coaching for 36 years. My first coaching job was with Champion Cheer. I was so honored to work with and learn so much from Cathy Buckey!"
 

2) What was your highlight this past season with your program? Any special/fun events you attended or accomplishments you'd like to brag about ?

This season was unlike any other in the past 16 years. Our gym faced a horrible tragedy, but grew so much together. We experienced miracles. The love and support we received from the cheer industry was life altering. To be the recipient of so much kindness and compassion solidified my faith in humanity. The biggest accomplishment for the gym as a whole was not missing a single competition as we pushed through our loss.

 
Our gym loves Cheer and Dance Extreme’s events! They are so much fun and the staff is amazing."
 

3) What is your program's Motto ... or if you don't have one, what is your main coaching philosophy?

When I first selected the name Cheer Eruption All-Stars, I also had a tag line...”Feel the Spirit!” As time has gone by, the gym is now mainly referred to by the acronym, CEA, but the tag line resonates in the core of our values. Feel the Spirit is a reference to the Holy Spirit. I want ever child, parent, and staff member to feel valued, included, empowered, relevant, and most of all cherished. I insist on fairness and safety.

Cheer is a child’s extra curricular activity which means fun and learning at CEA!"
 

4) How did you find out about GlitterStarz, and what made you choose to buy your uniforms, warm ups, practice wear, and more with us ?

 

“We have chosen No Limit for our cheer shoes for the past 8 years. The owners of No Limit, Helen and Lou Felix, told me they were partnering with Glitter Starz. I have always received the greatest customer service from No Limit and knew if they were partnering with Glitter Starz, it had to be a good fit for my program. I made a great decision when I chose Glitter Starz for ALL of our apparel needs. I am now a loyal customer. Glitter Starz is a gym owners best friend! The customer service at Glitter Starz is superb. All products are high quality and unique. My job is simple, approve a design (all unique and inspired) and pay the bill. Uniforms come sorted by individual and team. Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention Glitter Starz has competitive rates. It just doesn’t get better than this!"

5) How has your overall experience been working with GlitterStarz?

“OUTSTANDING! Glitter Starz is more than our apparel vendor. Liz, the owner and Meghan, our account rep are kind, hard working, and talented. I considered them to be a friend. Liz and her staff are AMAZING people! I have NEVER worried about not receiving our apparel. Every order has arrived at the promised time or earlier."

6) what are you most excited about this upcoming season?

“I am excited we are working towards a Summit Bid! There will be new experiences and memories. It is going to be hard work and a lot of fun!"

7) ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH US ABOUT CHEER ERUPTION?

“Fun fact about Cheer Eruption...

Our first practices were held in a barn at the County Fair Grounds.😂 We now have a 12,000 sq ft facility!"
 
Thank you ANNE for taking the time to answer all of our questions. WE TRULY APPRECIATE YOU AS A CUSTOMER! We wish you and your organization the best of luck this COMING year!
