CHEER

Please welcome our new head coach for 2022, Jené Miller!

 

"Jené Miller has been involved in the jr cheer community for over 10 years. Being hand selected by the BCJFA president and the founder of Bothell Jr Cheer to run the Bothell Jr Cheer program from 2012-2016, she brought the program to the next level. Gleaning on her many years of coaching a variety of sports, Jené along with her amazing coaching team, developed programs like peer voted team captains, mentor program, stunt/safety certification for all team managers and coaches, and motivational talks by celebrities like Miss Seafair. Jené has introduced a mascot program, and partnered with the local high school cheer programs, for mutual support and growth of outstanding athletes and team-mates. When the big split happened in Northshore, there was no question that NorthCreek Junior Football wanted to include her not just as cheer director, but as an equal founding executive board member. While with the Jaguars, Jené developed from scratch a cheer program with so much enthusiasm that the varsity team (full or 7th and 8th graders) moved through regional championships in post season competition and the team ended up 7th in the nation traveling to ESPN's Wide World of Sports complex at Disney World!

Jené has two children in the Bothell Community and started her coaching career with the Children's skiing and Snowboarding program at Snoqualmie pass. At age 13 she was a jr instructor, earning a level 1 certification with the Professional Ski Instructors Association-& American Associate of Snowboard Instructors. She supervised and directed the children's ski program for a number of years before moving to Bothell as a volunteer high school youth-group leader, soccer coach, swim instructor, and cheer director.

 

Jené's most notable accomplishments: taking the rec-competition cheerleaders to secure 3 first place titles and 2nd place in the State of Washington for 2015. Expanding to regional competition for 2016, taking 1st place in the state of Washington, 1st in the Northwest region and on to 7th in the nation with Pop Warner/YCADA  division junior rec level 3. Founding booster clubs for elite cheer teams, serving the last 5 years as executive board member for GSYFC, planting cheer squads on the sidelines for the West Seattle Bengals and making decisions for the Greater Seattle Youth Football and Cheer association. Jene' has a passion for developing good habits and skills for the young athlete to be encouraged of a life long desire for sports and activities! "
