Thank you for visiting the Advanced Cheer Crew All Starz website! Hi! my name is Coach Kristi Shaw-I am the proud Owner & Coach of ACC.
ON a personal note... I graduated from NWOSU in 1993 with a Bachelors degree in Physical Education, health and wellness and Psychology (emphasis in Motivation Psych). I attended Cowley College,Tabor College, Oklahoma State and NWOSU. While in college i ran track ( 400 & 100 hurdles, 55 hurdles indoor and was on the 4x1 relay) I also was a collegiate cheerleader!......These two SPORTS are my favorite!!
I have been married to Brian Shaw (Coach Shaw) for 25 years. We have two amazing, beautiful, talented daughters. Halston Lea (22 years old- KSU Alumni cheerleader- 2nd grade teacher) and Hadlea Renee ( 16 years old- loves to cheer and run track!).
I have worked at Cowley College for 22 years. I have served in a lot of capacities such as -- Gender Equity Director, Single Displaced Homemaker Program Director, GED Chief Examiner, Track and Field Sprinter, hurdle Coach, Head Cheerleading Coach, Intramural Director and what I am currently doing now....Executive Director of Enrollment Management! I wouldn't trade any of my jobs for anything!! During my journey thus far in my life.... I have pretty much seen, heard and experienced a lot of things which leads me to quote a saying from Emerson " All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have NOT seen."
My Mission: In retrospect I truly feel like my calling in life is to make a DIFFERENCE in PEOPLE'S LIVES! I can honestly say that is why I started ACC. I want to make an impact on the kids I coach. I pride my small gym on tough love and commitment! I give my heart and soul to the kids I coach, past, present and future! If I have ever coached you....you know that I am connected with you for life!!! EVEN if you DON'T cheer anymore.... my ACC CHEER FAMILY plays a significant role in my everyday life. With that being said....I feel like I have the best gym in the WORLD! YES, we are small but, WE ARE BIG IN HEART-- OF COURSE WE ARE AMAZING IN TALENT ALSO!! My Cheer Coaches are awesome and so are my athletes!! Thanks again for showing interest in ACC!!! GO AND MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE WHEREVER YOUR PATH TAKES YOU!!
CHEERS TO YOU--
