Royal City Cheer started as a very big idea from its Director Nicole Pasacreta. Nicole has been coaching cheer since she was asked as a student at NWSS in 1997. Nicole has helped transform the lives of hundreds of people across the province, many of which have followed in her footsteps and coach in local Cheer clubs today.
Fast forward nearly 20 years; it was time New Westminster had a cheer program accessible to boys and girls of all ages year round. The first step was a very successful cheer camp in 2015 to raise funds for the NWSS Hyacks cheer program. This helped garner interest from the community for the High School Program and to fund travel to competitions.
Royal City Cheer and Tumbling became a society in November 2015 and started offering classes out of the NWSS Gym one night a week for beginner’s competitive cheer and tumbling. Boys and girls learn fundamentals, safety, and have fun with events and even get to compete against other beginner teams.
