What They Said
Joann Lee had a vision for her…club
From inception, Joann Lee, founder and head coach of A.C.E. Firebirds had a vision for her competitive cheerleading club. Beyond the acceptance of a code of conduct and the coaches' published goals of 'developing athletism, responsibility, character, and self-esteem in young peoples while also producing exceptional cheerleaders', Joann had a vision of creating a 'Cheerleading Family'.
The upbeat and positive personality and strong moral character of both Jo and here coaches are a testament to why each year this family has grown to a point where there are now members from the age of under five to over 50, in some cases mothers, fathers, and siblings, all participating at various levels. A child does not just join a cheerleading club, but the family become a member of the A.C.E. Firebirds Family.

Our daughter…loved it!
"Our 18-year old daughter was introduced to the firebirds cheerleading team through a friend during a 'Bring A Friend' night. We didn't think she would like it. Boy, were we wrong!
She loved it and wanted to join right away. She has been part of the Firebirds since she was 12 years old. She loves being part of the team and going to competitions. She has made some awesome friends too! She also loves the summer program, not wanting to miss cheerleading over the summer.
As parents, we find the coaching staff to be kind, courteous and deal with the team and parents with a high level of professionalism. We love the Firebirds as much as our daughter!"
