My daughter was with the program for 7 years. During this time, my baby became a young woman. She was not just coached at CNY Storm, she was nurtured by this amazing surrogate “family.” Because she doesn’t have any siblings, Erin cherished her time at the gym. It was her refuge for managing the stressors of being a teenager; and she always knew she could count on the friendships of fellow athletes, and the never-ending support of her coaches.
I feel so blessed and lucky to have been a part of the Storm family since the fall of 2007. My daughter Amy is just finishing up her 6th season with Storm and is looking forward to many more! We began with a half-year team hoping to find a place where Amy could continue to cheer once her Pop Warner season was over but we found so much more than that! We found a second family. The coaches, parents and kids at CNY Storm will be part of our lives forever.
It’s an amazing feeling watching your child live their passion through the good bad and ugly… And more so… Learn from it, build from it and become a stronger united team! Thank you CNY for providing a place for our children to experience all of these life lessons. She loves you all very much, and as her mother I am truly grateful for all of you!
Jordyn was always memorized by the Storm Cheerleaders at the competitions and used to tell me that when she grows up she was going to be one of them. Well 4 years ago we agreed to let her experience CNY Storm’s half year team. Well that was it! Jordyn found her home! Jordyn loves her cheer family and quite honestly so do I! We have laughed, screamed and cried together! As the athletes celebrate their victories as a team and with their coaches, we, the parents are doing the same!
