Gavin brings 11 years of diverse coaching experience to the program. He discovered the world of cheerleading as a sophmore in high school when he joined the spirit team as an athletic option. Through this experience, Gavin’s interest in cheer grew and he joined a local all-star team the following year. This allowed him to compete on a co-ed team and perform partner stunt routines at regional and national competitions for ICE All-Stars. When his all-star career was nearing an end, Gavin opted to continue cheering while attending college at Morehead State University under Myron Doan’s tutelage. When Gavin returned to South Bend he coached for ICE All-Stars and provided college prep for young, coed athletes in an effort to assist them with their cheer aspirations. During this time, Gavin’s teams won multiple regional competitions, ultimately placing first at COA Nationals. Gavni then moved into semi-pro football for three years while continuing to work with student athletes entering college and actively coaching in stunt clinics. He began coaching cheerleading in Niles, Michigan for Champion Force Athletics in 2014, taking multiple competitive teams to the NYAA Nationals. Each year these teams place in the top 5 and and have brought home a national title. Gavin is a proud South Bend native and grew up watching Notre Dame athletic events. He even attended many camps while growing up and continues to avidly attend sporting events. Gavin, along with his loving wife Lauren, hope to continue this tradition with their son.
