    Mission Statement
    The vision of the Amherst Cheer program is to create a program where every athlete feels valued and appreciated.  To prepare them for their next phase of life beyond high school by developing them into strong and confident young men and women.  This program will teach athletes valuable life lessons, work ethic, mutual respect, accountability and a high level of commitment.  As coaches we are dedicated to building champion athletes while representing our school with enthusiasm and pride.
