Sumer's Coaching Philosophy: She believes in perfection before progression, so she looks for athletes to master skills and drills before moving them to the next level. This helps reduce mental frustration and the likelihood of forming mental blocks. All athletes develop at different rates and Sumer is patient in waiting until they are confident in their skills while giving positive encouragement to help them reach their goals. She LOVES being able to witness her athletes’ reactions when skills finally “click” they become confident in themselves and what they are capable of. She works hard to instill teamwork in her athletes. Sumer makes sure that they understand the importance of helping one another succeed. Sumer strives to be a positive role model both in and out of the gym. Cheerleading has taken her so far both personally and professionally and now she wants to share her experiences with this amazing sport with others.
