    Xray or MRI?

    Xray or MRI?

    This is one of the most common questions I get from athletes and parents. There is some confusion about imaging...the process, the need for it, which one is right, and what to do with the information.

    While some cheerleaders need imaging, many do not and in this episode we dive into what imaging is and when we would need it.

    Jerry Harris is a Predator

    Jerry Harris is a Predator

    A few episodes back, we discussed an ongoing investigation on some high profile people in the cheer world and their alleged predatory actions. Names of victims in the predator were omitted to protect the anonymity of the children into respect the due process of law. Now it is clear who these people are. I suggested that coaches, parents, and gym owners keep their ears open and be willing to have tough conversations because more people would be coming forward with their own traumatic experiences. We are now starting to see that happen more and more. Continue to talk to your athletes and kids and let’s keep progress moving forward until all kids can feel safe and listened to.

    Ridiculous attempt to justify PEDOPHILIA

    Ridiculous attempt to justify PEDOPHILIA

    In a sick and twisted way, a group of sexual predators is trying to explain their crimes against children by saying it is a natural trait that they were born with; an innate feeling that they have no control over and that should be as widely accepted as LGBTQ.
     
    This disgraceful attempt to justify their malicious acts falls at a time when cheer athletes are beginning to come forward and speak out against predators.
     
    Our sport has historically been progressive in equality for LGBTQ rights and for this fringe group of criminals to attach their twisted actions to the LGBTQ community and demand for equality is reprehensible.

    Pedophiles in Cheerleading

    Pedophiles in Cheerleading

    After the release of Athlete A which tells the story of the sexual abuse scandal perpetrated by Larry Nassar and covered up by USA Gymnastics, athletes in our sport have begun coming forward.
    Our sport is not immune from predatory adults. We see it in the news far too often and now, our athletes are starting to come forward to face their predators in an attempt end the cycle.
    Names of predators are starting to surface. Athletes are gaining the strength to speak out and they need us. Proactive steps must be taken now and a plan for how you are going to react is also of the utmost importance. Don't let it catch you off guard.
