Cheerleading has always been such a big part of my life and my biggest passion I knew I always wanted to be a coach! Practically everyone in my family has been a coach! When I first started coaching it was with my sisters for a pop warner team. 
When I graduated high school I helped coach my high school team the next year! This past year was my first season coaching at our tiny team Tiny Envy which was coached coach Savannah. They went undefeated all season! I also coached both session of our Mid Year team Allure that did awesome this season!

My name is Alli! I have been a competitive gymnast, dancer and cheerleader for over 24 years. I have been coaching for 14 years, including summer camps with NCA, tumbling classes, stunt classes, high school, all stars and collegiate level teams. I cheered at Stephen F. Austin State University for four years, where I won two NCA division 1 large coed national championships, as well as being one of only three stunt couples to ever win UCA and NCA collegiate partner stunt titles in the same year! I graduated from SFA with a bachelors degree in criminal justice-law enforcement in 2012. Since then, I have been coaching and choreographing all stars, high school and collegiate teams in Texas and California, as well as competing at worlds in the large coed level 6 division.

PCM Murrieta

 

My name is Coach Jessica. I have been with PCM for 11 years. I am married with 3 Children (well one is an adult) and have lived in the Temecula Valley since 1989. I was the first graduating class of Murrieta Valley High school and have had the pleasure to work with thousands of children throughout my 22 years of coaching. I have been blessed throughout my career with wining NCA, multiple Summit top 5 finishes, and multiple national championships. I’m in the process of finishing up my degree in Health and Nutrition Science at California State University of San Bernardino. I’m a busy body who loves to juggle work, school, and motherhood.  I look forward to starting my 12 years here at PCM Murrieta. I can’t wait to watch these kids grow and create memories along the way.  I am #PCM4LIFE!!

 My name is Shani Whitehead and this will be my 14th season with Pacific Coast Magic. I moved to the US from Australia in 2000 and in 2005 joined Magic All Stars before the merger with PC. I won several National Championships throughout my All Star cheer career. I was blessed with the opportunity to compete at Worlds 4x and knew towards the end of my career that I wanted to stay involved in this sport and coach. I started coaching in 2011 and this upcoming season will be my 7th year with levels 1-4. I have earned numerous titles as a coach and have coached teams to The Summit in 2016, 2017 and 2018 with every year ending in a Top 5 finish. I am very passionate about what I do and love the athletes I work with.  Outside of cheerleading I am engaged to my high school sweetheart of almost 14 years. I live in Orange County and commute to Murrieta and wouldn’t trade the long drives for anything! I adore the athletes I’ve watched grow up over the last few years and love working side by side with the Murrieta staff.

My name is Emily McGannon and this is my 10th year with Pacific Coast Magic. I moved to the Murrieta area in 2009 and that is when I started PCM when they first merged. I have been on level 2 teams all the way to level 5 teams with my time being at PCM. I have won many national championship tiles and was even a 2 time West Coast Cup Champion. In 2014 I received the Magic award and was honored to receive that from my coaches. In 2014-2015 I was an alternate for Mysterious and had a blast going to Worlds with them. In 2014-2015 I decided to be on a level 3 team, The Soldiers of Enchanted, and with endless hours in the gym and lots of work, I went to the summit in 2015 and won my first Summit title. What a great way to end my cheer season... in the Fall, when I couldn’t take not being in the gym so much. I texted Kellie and told her I need to be involved still and that led me to coaching. I coached my first midseason teams and had so much fun. In 2016, I was asked to fill in on Enchanted for the remainder of the season and after attending the Summit, I won back to back. I continued to coach and really found a love for teaching kids. I coach full season teams along with multiple academy classes! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me here at PCM ๐Ÿ’œOutside of PCM, I am finishing up my general education at a community college and start in the fall for my bachelors program at National University to become and elementary teacher. Coaching has really made me realize how much I love working with kids and inspiring them. I have found a love for leading our future generation! I will also be coaching at Cornerstone Christian School this upcoming school year (2018-2019). I am beyond blessed to have created strong friendships and relationships at PCM ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿงก I love every athlete that I work with and am so excited for this new season! #PCM4LIFE

I am currently a team and tumbling coach. I have been a part of All-Star Cheer for the 11 years. I first started cheering at Pacific Coast Cheer in 2005. I have competed levels 2 through 6. I started coaching at PCM in 2014, coaching a mid-season team. I love many things about coaching. I enjoy sharing my passion of cheer with younger athletes. I also love inspiring and being a role model to the athletes. Cheering has helped me be the person I am today! It made me get out of my shell and not be shy. I love watching athletes grow and achieve new skills.

Alexis Spivacke Picture Coming Soon

Hi everyone name is Lexi, this will be my third season coaching at PCM, and i have been with PCM for 7 years total!! I started as a dancer at Miss April’s Dance Company in Murrieta for about 10 years and i just wanted something different so Miss April recommended PCM and i’ve been hooked ever since then! Throughout my years at PCM I have been on many amazing teams a few being the soldiers of enchanted from 2013-2016 including us going back to back at The Summit in 2015 and 2016 earning three full paid bids to summit those three years being on enchanted and winning many amazing titles throughout those years! I started off on a senior two team supernatural (being a flyer) if anyone remembers that lol and worked my way up finishing my career on a senior level 4 team. Although i wish i could still cheer my body is definitely telling me no, after two major injuries it was time to retire. This past year i had the opportunity to coach our tiny 1 and mid season teams and it was a blast!!! I loved watching the kids grow throughout the season and watching them have the passion for it like i do. Honestly coming to PCM and being involved in such a family oriented gym was probably one the best choices i could’ve made, it has made me so much more outgoing and brought me out of my shell so much, PCM has created so many friends and memories that will for sure last a life time!! Outside of cheer i attended Palomar College in San Marcos where i am finishing up my AA in Kinesiology to become a personal trainer and then to go on to Cal State San Marcos to get my Bachelors after! I’m so excited for the 2018-2019 season here at PCM and to see all the new faces and what the new season brings us!!
