My love for cheer started when I went to a cheer holiday program when I was 5 years old, since then I have competed in cheerleading competitions all around NZ. What I love most about cheer is all the close friendships and unforgettable memory’s that you make with your team. Im excited for the year ahead and can’t wait to start working!

Leah – Our Tornadoes Assistant Coach

Hello my name is Leah and I’m 16 years old.

This is my fourth year cheering at Bay Twisters and I absolutely love it. Bay Twisters has made me progress so much and last year I was lucky enough to trial for team New Zealand and made it onto Legendz. This team was a huge commitment as trainings were 3 times a week up in Auckland but me and my family were up to the challenge to help me achieve my goal.

This year I’m so excited to be apart of Inferno ( level 4 ) and junior coach Tornadoes ( level 3 ) with Priya. I absolutely love coaching and seeing kids progress with their skills and helping them to achieve their goals and become closer with team mate.
