I attended Bridge City HS and was chosen as All American at NCA camp. I was asked to join the NCA Staff my senior year. I was also invited to Cheer Hawaii USA where I was voted Team Leader and the runner-up for "Most Outstanding Cheerleader" of the entire camp!

Brooke DiChiara

Jr. Coach

I was a cheerleader for 6 years at The Next Level and I've always enjoyed coming here. Throughout my years of cheerleading, I have learned that hard work and dedication are very important and I would love to teach others the importance of it as well. I also love kids and coaching so putting these two together and coaching kids is awesome and makes me happy.​
