Melissa became a part of the 3CA family in 2004, when she walked through the door to sign up Chloe. Little did she know that almost 15 years later, she would be not only a co-owner, but a driving force behind the continuing growth of 3CA. You can usually find her behind the desk coordinating everything it takes to make the gym run.
Emme has pretty much grown up at 3CA. She started cheering at the age of 4 and has been on teams for 15 years. She has also been a team and tumbling coach for the past 5 years. Emme has also cheered at Barnstable High School, where she was a Varsity Cheerleader and Captain.
Who am I? I am Coach Nicole, age 36, a loud and proud, uniform washing, hair styling, make up applying, hair bow finding, picture taking, go team shouting cheerleader. I feel I am killing it as a cheer mom. My cheer enthusiasm life style has opened so many doors and given me strength that I use in my every day life. I have been active in cheer for 10 plus years and have competed in plenty of events with cheer and other sports. Winning a National Championship is one of my cheer highlights in Orlando Florida. I am a loud and energetic person that loves mentoring, performing, and inspiring the incredible sport called cheer. This is not a job for me. I do this for the pure enjoyment and thrill.
