Reign Staff

The Owner Melissa has worked in the cheer industry since she was 16yrs of age coaching her own teams. Melissa became a mom and wife and stepped away from her own cheer career to become a teacher. Melissa worked for Head Start for 15 yrs and was a cheer mom for most of those 15 yrs to her second oldest son Josh. She has always loved cheerleading and the competitive aspect of it. So it was  no surprise when her son too loved cheerleading from a very young age. Melissa would be Josh's first coach but not his last. 

Our coaching staff is unique, our Head Coach is also a chorographer and has given us some of the most innovative routines through out our years in buisness. Joshua is also part owner of Reign Elite Academy. His back ground and experience  in the cheer industry can not be matched here in Bakersfield.... Joshua received his training in Ventura and San Marcos at the world renound gym the California All Stars. He cheered for 4 yrs with CA and was on several of thier teams to inlude Black Ops, Smoed, and Cali Coed to name a few. Joshua knows what it takes to be a world champion and has brought that calibur of training to Bakersfield. Reign Elite Cheer is his baby and he pours his heart and soul into his teams.
