Hi, I’m Coach Laura! I started out as a cheerleader in the summer of 2000. In 2005 I started my coaching career in Oneida Pop Warner, and coached with them for 2 years. In 2006, I started cheering on North Star’s Senior team. In 2007, Lorrie added the Mini and Junior teams to our program. I started assistant coaching the Junior team and continued for 5 years with them. In 2012, I took my first head coaching position with North Star’s Tiny team.
