    Hey y'all so I got a job as a cheerleading coach for my local Y! I am very excited but I am looking for tips on how to coach as I have never coached before. Anything would help, how practice should be run, tips and drills, chants and cheers, etc..

    Think back on your own experience as a cheerleader and how your practices went. You also need to establish realistic goals. For example, a goal might be full team cartwheels. An unrealistic goal might be full team BHS or BWO therefore, it's a waste of time to spend extensive time on that at practice. I could write you a book about coaching and my advice, but it would be rather lengthy so if you're interested, PM me.
