Stephanie Johnson

I have been coaching with ACTIVSTARS for 4 years and truely love what I do. The athletes at my locations work extremely hard and it shows everytime we step on the mat. Every week we focus on strength, stamina, technique, performance and make sure no cheerleader is left behind. My locations have a strong sense of communty and a family bond. We help eachother out and support every team making both locations have 4 strong powerhouse teams. I'm a dedicated, hardworking coach and expect the same from my athletes and parents.

 

Locations:Centerra Mirage(Wednesdays) and Madison Rose Lane (Mondays)

Teams:JV Cubs, Varsity Cats, Wildcats Allstar, WarCatz Pro, JV Bandits, Varsity Rebels, Pirates Allstars, Anarchy Pro

Training:13+ years cheer and dance High School, College, and competitive experience.

Favorite Quote: "Hardwork beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."

How to get Clean Jumps

Reminders/Tips to Clean up Jump Technique:

1. Keep your body nice and tight from prep - to jump - to landing. Whether you start with a clap or a high V or high clasp, whatever positions you need to hit make certain your arms and hands are in perfect position and really sharp in their motions.

2. You can
go up on your toes to start the jump but don't double or triple bounce before jumping.

3. Make sure you
keep your chest up the entire time, so rather than dropping your arms down to your legs keep your torso upright, hit the arm position really hard, and bring your legs up to your arms by rolling your hips under. (See below)

4. Be sure to
point your toes.  Buddy up and watch one another to see if you are remembering to point your toe during the full jump execution.

5. Have energy - Always
whip your legs up as fast as you can and snap them back down hard, because expecting gravity to do all the work will result in a slow and sloppy landing. To practice snapping your legs together do air jacks. Think "double speed jumping jack" but when you jump out you never hit the ground. Instead you snap your feet back to the center again as fast as you can, like hyper-speed mini spread eagles.

6.  When you land, it should be quiet and toe-ball-heel. Your arms need to go nice and tightly to the sides of your body in a "clean" position. Make sure you stick the landing. No stepping out of place or flailing arms.

7.  Hit strong arms during the jump, your arms help you to gain height and look more controlled, T’s are T’s same with all the other positions of the arms.

EXERCISES/STRETCHING:

Leg Explosions: This exercise helps with height and leg strength. Start with your feet together. Take a slow dip so until your knees reach a ninety-degree angle. Explode into the air without using your arms. As you land, absorb gently absorb back into your starting position. Start with three sets of five controlled jumps and work up to executing 7-8 in a row.

Sitting Toe Touches: This exercise isolates the hip flexor and abdominal muscles that lift legs into the jump position. Start by sitting on the floor in a tuck position.  Balanced with your feet slightly off the floor and your arms in “daggers”. Quickly lift your legs and arms to all the way to the toe touch position. Once you’ve hit it, snap back to your starting position as quickly as possible. It may take a few tries to find your balance. Once you get the hang of it, focus on keeping your toes pointed, your legs straight, and your back upright. Again, start with three sets of five and work up to fifteen reps in a row.

Straddle Lifts: This exercise also isolates the hip flexors. Start on the floor in a straddle position. Place your hands on the floor in between your knees. Lift one leg a two inches off of the floor for a count of two and then set it back down. Keep your leg straight and your toe pointed. Repeat with the other leg. Do these five times (approximately 10 seconds on each leg). Work up to holding each leg twice for a count of five, and then once for a count of ten. Eventually, you may lift both legs at once.

The Importance of Counting

Often times when observing a practice or a dance class you hear coaches constantly yelling "5,6,7,8" . Counts are very important when it comes to cheer, dance and stunts so we know where we are in the routine. During a routine there are times when we are together in unison, roll offs, peel offs, different directions or for our more advanced athletes completely different choreography happening at the same time. Counting is a vital part of routine prefection and making a team shine.

So What is Counting?

Counting is counting the underlying beats of the music. Doing so reveals the structure of the music. It pertains only to the structure of the music—not the step pattern being danced—and virtually all dance music is counted the same.

 How Do you count music?

Try to identify the count 1s, the first beat of a set of 8. A count 1 stands out because it typically has an emphasis or accent. It also stands out because it’s a beginning point for a piece of the melody or other thematic element; it sounds like a natural place to start something. It’s the same type of feeling you get at the start of a new sentence.Listen to the overall melody of the music and try to hear the whole sentence (the whole set of 8). If you can hear, thematically, that you're coming to the end of a sentence in the music, then you can feel when the next sentence will start. If you predict correctly, it gets confirmed by hearing the accent on the next count 1 and the feeling that, thematically, a new sentence has started. Today, this method, feeling the music, is the primary way you connect to the sets of 8, and much of it is done subconsciously, without thinking.

Whenever I teach a routine we learn the counts first and do the counts anywhere from 3 to 5 times before even turning on the music. This helps create muscle memory which comes with reptition. We do not naturally know how to walk when we are first born. We tried it. We fell. We tried it again we took a couple steps then fell again. until finally walking became natural something that we just easily do. Dance and cheer are the same way the more we do counts and practice the routine the more our body just naturally wants to do it creating muscle memory.

What is Muscle Memory?

Muscle memory is not a memory stored in your muscles, of course, but memories stored in your brain that are much like a cache of frequently enacted tasks for your muscles. It's a form of procedural memory that can help you become very good at something through repetition, but in exactly the same way it can make you absolutely terrible at that same thing.

This is why it's important to pay attention when learning choreography so you don't practice it wrong and get incorrect movement embeded in your memory. For example when we go through arm motions and kicks making sure our toes are pointed and our wrists are facing the correct way as not to create bad habits in the future.

 Included is a video of Cheer Extreme during Day 2 of NCA where the music cuts of mid performance yet they still hit a flawless routine due to knowing the COUNTS and having practiced with enough REPETITION to build MUSCLE MEMORY.

Why I coach Cheerleading

I Love the Sport
 I love coaching it's a mix gymnastics, dance, and crazy circus tricks that come together as cheerleading. Everyone thinks it’s pom poms and go go boots until they watch a clip from NCA or Worlds.

I am Competitive
Everyone wants to win.(DUH)  However to some winning looks different than just first place. As much as I would like to come first every competition, if my team is having a rough time and they did the best I’ve seen in a long time, I’m going to celebrate.

I Love a Challenge
Can't is not a word that i accept at my locations. We either find a way to make it happen, or create something crazier in the process.

Your Team Becomes Your Family
You had a rough day at work? Don’t worry, your kids will make you feel like nothing happened by the end of practice. We care and support one another because that’s what cheerleading is about.

I Teach Life Lessons (some less fun than others)
 I have the ability to make a difference in your athletes life every practice. I teach them punctuality (’cause you’re never late for practice), integrity (did you really do your jumps?), mental toughness (not every practice is a piece of cake you know).

I Get to Learn Life Lessons
Coaching has taught me patience, compassion, time management and out of the box thinking to name a few. There are far too many to list, but I have learned a lot about who I am and who I want to become.

I Put a Smile on Their Faces
That feeling when your athlete FINALLY gets a difficult skill after a year of coaching. That look on her face is a big reason.

But the biggest reason of all is…

I Change Their Lives
I remember every coach, instructor dance dance teach I have ever had and value ever lesson that I learned from them. Many of them have become great friends and mentors for me since I have began coaching. That’s the reason I coach. To make a difference. Big or small, it doesn’t matter. I want to have the same impact on my athletes that my coaches had on me.

As coaches our goals are to create a safe and fun learning environment for our athletes. Teaching the fundamentals and crazy skills comes second.

I coach cheerleading and it may take up a lot of time and energy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
