Jasmine Dickey

Coach

Jasmine was born and raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. At the age of four, she got into gymnastics. She did gymnastics for eight years, working her way up to level five skills. During her last three years of gymnastics, she discovered her love for cheerleading. She started with recreational cheerleading for her school’s football team in elementary school. She continued to cheer for her school all the way through her ninth grade year of high school. While participating in recreational school cheerleading, she also got involved in competitive all-star cheerleading. She did her first year of competitive cheerleading with “Pennsylvania Vipers”. After realizing there were no more teams available for her skill level, she decided it would be more beneficial to start cheering in Maryland for the “Maryland Vipers/VIP Athletics” cheerleading organization. she competed for three seasons of all-star cheerleading with Maryland Vipers, ultimately perfecting her level 4 skills and working towards the mastery of her level 5 skills. During her last season with Maryland Vipers, she experienced a severe compound fracture of her left foot and ankle. A few weeks after experiencing this injury, she and her mother moved across country from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Glendale, Arizona. Because of her injury, she had been hesitant to begin cheerleading again. At the same time, since gymnastics/cheer has played a large role of her life for so long, she wanted to get involved in the environment again somehow. She loves working with children, so becoming a coach, where she could help younger children excel in their skills and find their love for cheerleading, felt like the perfect choice. She is a graduate of Mountain Ridge High School. She has always excelled in her studies, enrolling herself in Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses. She was a varsity track and field athlete. She is enrolled in the nursing program at ASU Downtown Campus. Jasmine is a coach and a returning member of the D2 Summit winning Senior 4 team, Platinum.

Nicole Chesney

Nicole began her cheer career at the age of 4 when she dressed for halloween as a UCLA Bruins cheerleader. From this point on, it was all about cheer. She started out with YCOA as a cheerleader on the newly formed Arrowhead Scorpions. She cheered with YCOA for 6 years going to nationals multiple times. Eventually, after one year of high school cheer, Nicole moved to competitive cheer however she did not leave behind YCOA. The year following her departure from YCOA as a cheerleader, she returned as an assistant coach for the Arrowhead Scorpions working under the direction of Tiffany Martin. During this time, the Arrowhead Scorpions not only attended nationals but, they won their division. During her competitive cheer days she has cheered for AZ Thunder and AZ Power and California AllStars. Nicole graduated from Mountain Ridge High School in 2015. She is now enrolled full-time at ASU Downtown, in their nursing program. She is currently a coach for our Tiny team and Senior 2 team.
