Coach Bri

Hi, My Name is Bri Cronin

 Born and Raised in Florida, Coach Bri moved to the Chicagoland area in summer of 2017, after graduating college. While in Florida, she began her coaching career at the age of 15 with a Recreational Pop Warner cheerleading program. Coach Bri grew with that team, coaching them for 6 years to numerous conference wins, regional wins, and national appearances. Her additional cheerleading experience includes coaching HS teams, time as a certified judge and as a tumbling coach. Since starting with Allstar Athletics in 2017, Coach Bri has worked with our Tiny Novice team, the back-to-back state qualifying Super Rec cheer team, Allstar Prep team, and most recently has coached our Summit-qualifying Junior 1 team!

Coach Dave

Hi, My Name is Dave

Dave comes with a wealth of experience and knowledge in cheer and tumbling.  He is the former head varsity coach at Lemont High School, the most decorated high school cheer program in Illinois.  As a former competitive gymnast and cheerleader, his belief in proper progressions is clear.  Tumbling is not just a physical activity, but a mental one as well.  Development in the athlete’s confidence to perform a skill is just as important as the physical ability to execute such a skill.  Dave is well versed in dealing with mental blocks as he studies many of the top coaches in the country.  Each skill must be learned as a progression to the next level, not just as a skill in and of itself.

Dave will also be available for private lessons.

Happy Tumbling!

Coach Kaylee

Hi, My name is Kaylee Butler

 I’ve been cheering for 12 years and still more to come! 3 of those years have been on the S4 team at Allstar Athletics, the rest were on rec teams and on high school cheer. I’ve been helping coach tumbling classes for a while, but I coached my first team for the first time last season! I am about to graduate from Andrew High School and planning on attending college next year at North Central College. I plan to stay close to home so I can keep cheering and coaching at Allstars and continue to learn all there is to know about cheerleading!

My background includes experience in school, recreational, and all star cheer! I began cheering here at Allstar Athletics when I was thirteen and continued through my junior year of college. I also did one year of college cheer my senior year at Lewis University! During my time cheering here at Allstar Athletics I competed on teams of almost every level, and I am also a 2x World Championships competitor. Also during this time, I began my coaching career! I have been coaching here for about eight years now, and I have also been coaching both the elementary team and junior high team at Cardinal Joseph Bernardin for the last 5 years!

Coach Joe

Hi, my name is Joe Jaworski!

I'm really old so I've been a lot of places and have cheered all over. I started off with 2 years on my high school cheer team in Westmont, as well as an all star gym for 3 years called cheer Chicago Naperville Blaze! I went on to cheer at my 2 year college COD, while also coaching a rec team called Westmont Wildcats. I spent 2 years as a UCA instructor, then went on to coach at a gym in Elk Grove, and eventually ended up at Ice of Illinois where I coached for almost 10 years. In that time, I was on their level 5 and 6 open coed teams. I left briefly to cheer at Hawaii Pacific University for one year, and returned home to continue coaching at Ice.  After leaving Ice I spent some time coaching at Famous Athletics, as well as X-Force, and eventually landed here at Allstar Athletics! I've been coaching for the better half of 19+ years and competed for my last time at worlds when i was over 30, so I would say I was an active cheerleader for 9+ years!
