Irvine, California – July 29, 2009 - The National Cheer Safety Foundation (NCSF) panel of experts teams up with the National Council for Spirit Safety and Education (NCSSE) to establish college-level safety courses for cheer coaches around the world. The new alliance brings together two powerhouses in cheer safety setting the stage to revolutionize cheerleading, signaling a dawning of a new era coined “safety first.”
Kimberly Archie, director of the NCSF is a tireless advocate for safety and works tirelessly to make the sport safer for those participating. Frederick O. Mueller, Ph.D. probably says it best when he points out the efforts of the NCSF are to apply science to cheering, making it a safer sport. By applied standards they should be able to reduce the number of injuries, disability and deaths from cheer injuries. We can deny it all we want, but like sticking our head in the sand injuries and deaths won’t just go away, without those in charge taking charge.
I for one can attest to Kimberly Archie's dedication. She regularly provides information and press releases for cheer safety.
