Reader responds to cheer letter

Sunday, January 31, 2010

To the Editor:

I would like to start by saying that I agree with the lady that wrote the (letter) about the NCMS cheerleaders. The only thing I agree with is that they did a wonderful job this year.

They were obviously coached very well over the summer and were taught awesome routines.

They looked great, a plus for the sponsor. They were well prepared to start their games.

When a sponsor has numerous squads, it is very hard to be in two places at one time so that is why we have assistant sponsors.

At least one sponsor was at each and every game.

There is a difference between coaches and sponsors. Coaches are paid and sponsors are not.

Sponsors give freely of their time and talent.

So there, anyone commenting on this matter should get all the facts first.

Obviously, she didn't. There isn't anyone more passionate and concerned for the safety of each and every cheerleader than their sponsors.

Sincerely,

Debbie Myers,

Brazil
