  1. 1. NonverbalCommunication: Coaching By Adam C. Eisler
  2. 2. My Personal Coaching Background I started as a gymnast in my elementary school years. After one short year as a gymnast, I joined the cheerleading team at Destin Middle School in Destin, Fl. My freshman and sophomore year of high school, I was on Fort Walton Beach High School Varsity Competitive cheerleading team. Nationally ranked and known, I experienced extensive training. After my sophomore year, I made the transition to All Star Cheerleading. All Star is simply competitive cheerleading, without the requirements and expectations of school cheerleading (No football games, no pep rallies… Strictly competition.)
  3. 3. My Personal Coaching Background Upon entering All Star Cheerleading at Premier Wildcats of Panama City, I also began assistant coaching to help pay for my tuition. After graduating from high school, I moved to New Orleans where I began cheering for Elmwood Galaxy All Stars, and again, assistant coaching to help with tuition. Now, I am the head tumbling coach of Cheer Force New Orleans, and coach the Ben Franklin High School cheerleading teams.
