Legacy Cheerleading

This is Legacy Cheerleading! Manitoba's newest Allstar cheerleading program. We are built on a foundation of dedication to our athletes, and ran by a group of talented and knowledgeable community members who keep the progress of our sport and it's athletes at the forefront of their minds. Each member of Legacy is a driven and self motivated athlete, who was brought up on the same virtues and guiding values that we hope to bestow upon our athletes. Since day one we have focused on principles of success such as perseverance, focus, determination and confidence. With these ideas guiding us, and with these thoughts being placed and nurtured in the minds of our young ones, we were able to have an incredibly successful debut season, and will continue to refine our craft, to push our program into the spotlight.

Every business can tell you what they do, but let us explain why we do it. We are here to give our athletes everything that cheer has given us. We are here to promote confidence in our youth. We here to safely develop the body and minds of these kids into the most successful versions of themselves. We are here to meticulously and patiently grow our athletes as individuals at their own pace, through carefully and strategically designed progressions. Lastly, we are here to show the world that cheerleading is one of the most challenging and rewarding sports in the world, and that cheer is home to some of the best athletes the world has to offer.

NICK VERBURG

Nick has been cheerleading for four seasons. In that short time, like all of us, the sport has completely won his heart. Initially starting on Manitoba Mayhem, Nick's skill and drive led him to achieve a spot as a member of the Blue Bombers Cheer and Dance Team for the first time in 2014. 

Nick says, " It didn't take long for me to notice the positive effect that cheer had on my life. As soon as I was aware of how the sport was changing me, I knew that I needed to give the same experience back. I believe in an individual approach, to each athlete, as everybody has their own goals and dreams. I believe that with the right help and fire in your chest, there's nothing in the world that you can't accomplish.  I love the feeling of helping people reach their goals!"

Nick currently coaches for Dakota Collegiate's cheer team and was recently awarded the sole coaching position for the Blue Bombers Cheer and Dance Team. He can usually be found at open gym, three, or four times a week growing as an athlete, but also helping anybody that wants it; no matter what team they're on. Nick has his First Aid and CPR and is USASF credentialed to level 5.
