Chosen by a committee of Nationally-representative adjudicators, we are certain that these teams will represent Canada very well.
Best of luck Junior Teams. Go Canada Go!

The National Team Committee of Cheer Canada is thrilled to announce the coaches for the 2019 ICU Team Canada Premier teams. Due to the unmitigated success of the program in the past few seasons we are happy to announce that all coaches from 2018 have applied to remain. We welcome back Marcy Kuzemchak from the Cheerforce Wolfpack, Thomas Rath of Saskatchewan and Ashley Impellezere from Vancouver All-Stars to the All Girl Premier staff and are excited to add Stephany De Rosa from Flyers All-Starz into the mix.
Stephany is a multi-time medalist at the IASF World Championships as both an athlete and coach, taking home a bronze medal at the 2018 World Championships with the Small Coed team, Flyers Lightening. Stephany is a well-known Canadian choreographer and has worked with many successful University programs. Stephany sees what others may miss and her optimism, technical skills, and talent have brought her to the Team Canada staff.
“It is the most rewarding feeling to know that you brought a group of individuals together and helped them become a team who beat all the odds.”
Leading the Coed Premier team this season once again are David Lee Tracey of Western University and the PCG Vipers, Sandy Han of Kingston Elite, and Nicole Myers-Pugh of PCT Cheer and Tumble. We are thrilled to have this combination of passion, skill, and creativity working with some of the best coed athletes on the planet.
We are certain that with these seven Canada is in GREAT hands. Let’s go Canada!
