Troy and Keri Hedgren

Troy Hedgren grew up moving around quite a bit due to his parent's pastoral obligations but found himself in Southern California for his senior year of highschool.  His passion for gymnastics, tumbling and cheerleading began when he started working at a local gymnastic's center where he trained and was mentored by some of the nations top gymnastic's coaches.  In 1994, he operated the largest mobile gymnastic's program in Southern California for 3 years and decided to open his own gymnastic's center in Laguna Niguel in 1996.  Soon after, he transferred his gymnastic's center into a cheerleading gym and started the first All-Star cheerleading program in Orange County, Magic All-Stars.  After 13 successful years, Troy merged his program with Kellie Elliott's program Pacific Coast Cheer and they became Pacific Coast Magic, Inc.  PCM continues to lead the way in innovation, technique, and world class choreography.  Troy was named GSSA's California Coach of the Year in 2007.  Along with other prestigous awards and honors, Troy exemplifies his creativity and passion on the mat with his innovative pyramids and stunt sequences.  Troy has been married to  Keri since 1992 and they have three children Aubree, Tyson and Daely.  All three cheer proudly  for PCM.  In his spare time, he loves to read a good book and enjoys relaxing at the beach and might even pull his surfboard out once in a while.  Troy's love for the sport goes above and beyond and his desire to have every athlete reach their full potential is evident in his every day interacations with his teams.  "Much can be accomplished if you don't care who gets the credit"  John Wooden.

ACADEMY COACHES

 

Coach Derek (PCM Anaheim)

I have been a coach at Pacific Coast Magic since 2012. I am currently a Tumbling Coach. I have been cheering for 10 years with various programs across the country including KC Cheer, Arizona Heat Elite and Pacific Coast Magic. With these teams I have won dozens of national titles and several national jackets and competed in Worlds 3 times. I have been coaching tumbling since 2004. I love everything about coaching. Seeing children accomplish something that years or months ago they thought they would never do is something that always warms my heart.
A few of my favorite quotes are : "Fear shows up when you are about to do something great." "Practice doesn't make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect." 


Coach Tyson (PCM Anaheim)

I have literally grown up in this gym but it wasn't until 2011  that I traded in my football cleats for a pair of Nfinity's.  I was on Mysterious (Senior Coed Level 5) last season and placed 10th at the Cheerleading Worlds with my team.  I love everything about tumbling and stunting.  My goal is to instill my passion for this sport in younger kids and make them realize that nothing is impossible if you have a desire and drive.  I didn't even try my first backhandspring until I was 14 years old, so it's never too late!   I currently coach tumbling and stunt classes at PCM Anaheim.  I am also a JAMZ Staff member and enjoy traveling to teach camps and clinics to athletes around California.  I hope to continue to advance my skills in tumbling, stunting and coaching in the years to come.  When I'm not at the gym you can find me at the beach.
