Who is head coach Monica Aldama?
Cheer follows two rival teams, Navarro and Trinity Valley Community College as they prep to go head to head in the cheerleading championships.
Monica Aldama is the head coach of team Navarro and has been for many years now. Over the years the 49-year-old has helped her team win countless trophies and championships.
Aldama has helped the team win 14 National Cheer Association Junior College Division National Championships and 5 Daytona Crown Grand National Titles.
Before joining a career in coaching, Aldama got her MBA from the University of Texas.
Who are the assistant coaches for team Navarro?
One of the assistant coaches for team Navarro normally, is ex-cheerleader himself, Andy Cosferent. Unfortunately to fans’ demise, he isn’t back for most of Season 2.
We see him at the start but then he suddenly left the 2021 cheer season and we still aren’t 100 percent sure why.
There is speculation going around that the reason he left is due to other career and business ventures. He said:
“It has been so hard not to talk about this, but here it is. I am so honoured and excited to embark on this new project and venture! We are going to put in all the work and effort necessary in order to make this a ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE.“
However, the news isn’t all bad! This season we are joined by a new assistant coach and a former team Navarro cheerleader herself, Kailee Peppers.
Before joining the team as a coach, Peppers was one of the most successful cheerleaders at Navarro and was known for winning multiple championships.
Pepper is a three-time Grand National Champion and one-time Grand World Champion. I think it’s safe to say she knows what she is doing!
