STUNT Has Potential to Transform Cheerleading Culture
Feb 5, 2019 – High School STUNT: National Federation of State High School Associations
“About four weeks into the season and halfway through league play, we started to notice the positive changes in cheer culture at our school. The anecdotes kept coming in from athletes, teachers and parents. A senior team member said, “The football players are asking us when our next game is and if we won last night. They are giving us high fives.” Parents were ecstatic about the game’s fast pace and excited about how much playing time their cheerleaders were getting…”

Acalanes and Miramonte STUNT Teams Come to Fore
May 16, 2018 – High School STUNT: Lamorina Weekly
Competitive sports cheer (STUNT) will have as many as 30 girls on the roster. Sallina Boynton (Jazzlyn’s mother and former coach) filled in last year as coach at Las Lomas High School. She will be coaching next year at Acalanes along with her daughter and Caviness and appreciates the difficulty of competitive cheer: “You compete at jumping, tumbling, partner stunts and pyramids There are six levels and three different routines with each level and you have a short window to learn the routines. It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun. I’m very happy that it’s a sport.”
