How blessed I am to be to spend the work day and night surrounded by children, and it doesn't even feel like "work"! The best part of this job, is that it isn't a job at all. Its a gift given on a daily basis by the young athletes who bring a constant supply of sunshine into my life. I am BLESSED! Watching the young athletes work hard season upon season, towards their personal and team goals, is a true joy.

In my past six years of coaching, had the pleasure of coaching level 1 and 2 teams with children ranging from the ages of 3-14. I've always enjoyed working with the girls. Seeing them learn and work together as a team is wonderful. More importantly knowing how happy the sport could make them GIVES ME GREAT SATISFACTION. It gives children and teens a chance to feel like they are a part of something.  These are things that make the job worth while.

I am currently a student at CSI, I work part time at a SRS real estate company as a Brokers Assistant. 


Brianna Alvarez-Sosa

  • Tumbling Coach present

Brianna began cheering with WCC in the 4th grade, the summer of 2006 and she’s been with us ever since! She started out knowing nothing about cheerleading and has grown into a level 5 cheerleader! She’s been cheering for a number of years now and has a ton of experience from cheering for so long, and therefore became a coach for us. She absolutely adores coaching and believes that WCC is a family! We have such talented and dedicated kids and we encourage them to try their best and love the sport no matter what. We started training her as a tumbling coach about two years ago and she’s learned so much since then. She’s tried so hard throughout the years to be the best she can be and now the kids look up to her! Her biggest strength was tumbling and her backing skills were just a plus. She’s always been absolutely dedicated to cheer and loves it so much. She wouldn’t trade the years with us for anything in the world!

Brianna graduated from Wagner High School and is now majoring in Criminal Justice in the Borough of Manhattan Community College.

I love working with younger girls and seeing them happy and succeed. This makes me know my job as a coach is a success.

  • Taught dance at Staten Island Dance Center for 4 years, teaching dance in the Happy Feet special needs program.
