Welcome to Coach Mallory's Wiki

Cheer Positive (+); Not just Cheerleading, Cheer-LEADERship


B+.jpg"A coach's primary function should not be to make better players, but to make better people."
~John Wooden, 'A Game Plan for Life' 2009

My biggest reason for creating this Wiki was to have a place to keep all the facebook notes and blog posts I've written adapting UCLA Basketball Coach John Wooden's famous "Pyramid of Success," only adapted for cheerleading. You'll find these posts under "PYRM" in the menu to the left.

Once I got started, I realized that over the past 20 years of coaching, I'd written a lot of other things that also reflected my personal philosophy as a coach. You'll find these essays on somme of the important challenges and benefits of cheerleading in the menu under "PLUS." I hope that these will be useful for not just my cheerleaders, but other people as well- especially other cheerleaders and cheer coaches.

These are what the other sections of the menu have in store:

BASICS- Thees pages have advice, videos and links to resources on the fundamentals of cheerleading
BV- pages are things just for my squad at Boyer Valley in Dunlap, IA
TMAL- are just some special memories I have of coaching, Lord knows there's more than these, if I ever get time to post them.

Please look around and be sure to leave your comments or email me if you have any ideas for this Wiki.

Sorry everyone waiting to "join" this Wiki, it's really about storing/presenting information, not collaborating.
