There are a lot of allstar moms on the page, and a fair amount of school and community cheer moms too. Cheer Moms Mission: To provide a great place for parents of cheerleaders to gather, share and learn great information about the world of cheer. And cheer is global.
Real-life cheer moms, Nikki DeLude and Lisa Miller, are co-founders. They met shortly after Nikki started the page. Lisa is a programmer. Nikki says, “We just clicked – and became great friends!” Nikki and Lisa began by moderating the page and soon started a separate site to provide more flexibility and opportunity for interaction. They both also blog for Cheer Channel.
Nikki is the mother of 2, Gracie is 5 and Kate is 13. Gracie is going into her 2nd season of allstar cheer, and we are working on getting Kate back on her allstar team after a much-needed break. Kate is captain of her middle school squad right now! Nikki also works full time in customer service while running Cheer Moms with Lisa. The latest crisis at the DeLude house, what music to select for Gracie’s individual routine! And her friends at Cheer Moms definitely had some advice!
Lisa is the mom of two, Colin, her 10 year old loves baseball, basketball and football and Abby, 8 years old, lives, eats, sleeps and breathes allstar cheer! Lisa says, “It’s one crazy life! And a full time job in itself!” Her daughter suffers from hip dysplasia, and cheerleading has been great for her! Lisa proudly speaks geek!
