Cover: cheer champs: create your own choreography
Cheer Champs: Create Your Own Choreography
with Britten Blackburn,
President/CEO at the Alabama Cheerleading Center and Head Coach of the Bama All Starz in Bessemer (AL);
former Auburn University cheerleader, Auburn University cheerleading coach, and a 9-year Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) Head Instructor.

Whether preparing for competition or wanting to wow your fans during a halftime performance, routine choreography can make all the difference!

Working his way up from the most basic of motions to synchronized tumbling passes, Britten Blackburn presents a variety of squad formations along with a multitude of transitions to "wow" the crowd during your next routine.

The formations highlighted in this production are:

  • Two Line (Sideline) Formation
  • Diagonal Formation
  • Diamond Formation
  • V and Inverted V Formations
  • Bowling Pin Formation

Along with showing each formation, Coach Blackburn's cheerleaders demonstrate how to switch positions with each other using arm motions, spins, floor rolls, jumps, and tumbling. These transitions from one formation to the next can be done simultaneously or in a ripple pattern to music or words during a cheer.

This video is an excellent resource for any coach needing choreography inspiration for upcoming competitions or performances. The ideas presented are unique and offer a sharp, put-together look for squads at any ability level.

Stop the Drama! Managing Conflict in Cheerleading
with Jen Uselton,
UCA Cheer Instructor for 17 years, 6x UCA Head Instructor of the Year,
former American Association of Cheerleading Coaches & Administrators Coaches (AACCA) Education Coordinator

Learn communication skills for managing and resolving conflict among coaches, parents and athletes in this candid DVD from veteran cheer coach Jennifer Uselton.

Drawing on real-life issues from her 16-year coaching career, Uselton shares tips and techniques for creating an environment of compassionate understanding that will open pathways to creative problem solving, team building and improved relationships.

Uselton opens with a brief overview of the four main stages of group development, emphasizing the second or "storming" stage where most conflict occurs. She applies a unique interpretation of Dale Carnegie's highly successful "feel, felt and forward" method to six different scenarios. Each scenario shows how to diffuse emotionally charged situations to create positive results that respect different, often opposing viewpoints.

Viewers who practice Uselton's easy-to-follow advice will become competent, confident communicators.

Part 2 of the DVD addresses two critical and timely topics: effective social media networking and cyber-bullying.

Uselton discusses developing and protecting team reputations in the highly pervasive and accessible environments of social networks like Facebook and Twitter. She also gives pointers for protecting individuals from negative activities like cyber bullying and shares 10 cyber-bullying facts that every coach (and parent) needs to know in order to protect teens from embarrassing, hurtful behaviors.

Her presentation concludes with three tips for using the Internet to achieve positive results.

Effective conflict resolution requires specific communication skills. Uselton provides these tools plus important strategies for maintaining reputations and ensuring personal safety in an Internet-based age-all in less than 30 minutes. Every coach, athlete and parent can learn something from this presentation.
