Cheer Core Gold

Meet The Dream Team

Sam Thomas

Co-Owner & Allstar Director


Sam is the founder of CheerCore. She started this business at 21 and took it from small and humble beginnings to the championship winning program it is today! She has a sharp eye for details and and a passion for precise choreography. When it comes to seeing “the bigger picture” her experience is second to none, which is why she has been invited to coach and do clinics all around the World!

Quirky Facts: Sam has a knack for smothering kittens with hugs and kisses until they helplessly try and pry themselves out of her overprotective grasp. So if you have a pet cat, we suggest refraining from bringing it up during conversation as you will be interrogated about it until Sam is satisfied that you are now feline besties. Oh, and she can also eat enough tacos to put Mexico out of business. 

Coach Sahil

Co-Owner & Tumbling Director


Coach Sahil is the founder of and Addicted To Tumbling — an influential resource followed by over 50k athletes & coaches. With his proven track record of training athletes all around the World, partnering with Sam to help CheerCore members experience the most cutting-edge tumbling program was a no-brainer.

Quirky Facts: Coach Sahil is an avid advocate of all things bacon, and will find every opportunity to indulge annoy his fellow coaches and athletes with only the most groan worthy of dad jokes. His stoic nature also makes us question whether he has more than 2 emotions, and will often test his patience with seemingly mindless questions that have no basis in reality… just because we can. 

Kaden Hebb

Senior Team Coach

Kaden started her cheerleading career as an athlete at CheerCore, and continued training in Toronto while attending post-secondary. Kaden is now back home at CheerCore, working as a Senior Team Coach! She has experience competing at all of the prestigious competitions such as Worlds, NCA, CheerSport, and more! As a coach, she successfully helped a team claim the National Championship title in the 2019 season.

Quirky Facts: On the average day you can spot Kaden with a Starbucks cup in her hand, while telling stories at volume levels which would shatter most decibel meters. Look for CheerCore branded ear plugs in our pro shop in the coming months! We still <3 you Kaden

Tianna Hill

Senior Coach & Gym Manager

Tianna has been an integral part of the CheerCore team since the very beginning. She started off as one of our athletes and used that same drive and determination to become a fantastic coach who excels in all areas of the sport. She coached our Summit team and is a former NCA Champion. Because of this, she already achieved the Senior Coach position, and is now our official Gym Manager and keeps our amazing facility in tip-top shape!

Quirky Facts: When she’s not obsessing over tacos, birds or Country music, Tianna generally rotates between 3 different types of outfits; the grandma, the child and the overdressed. She also has an (annoying) addiction to Crocs which we are trying to help her get rid of in an effort to look more professional. So far, nothing has worked. We hope you don’t judge us as a whole based on her choice of footwear.

Kaitlyn Patton

Junior Team Coach

Kaitlyn started as an athlete and still competes on 24k – our Worlds team. However her passion for cheer has grown beyond learning skills and she now wants to help our younger generation experience the same love and joys of our sport. Her caring personality and attention to detail always has our little ones gravitating to her classes!

Quirky Facts: Her nickname is “Spider Kat”… if you’d like to know why, you’ll most likely have to ask her yourself. Spidey is also passionate about asking a million questions during practices and is known for roping people in to her TikTok videos. If you’re around her, be careful. She can be quite convincing!

Alex Brown

Junior Team Coach

Alex has been “born and raised” at CheerCore from the very early days! She defines what it means to be a “complete” athlete by having strong tumbling, basing and even flying skills. Besides being a Team Coach, she’s also an athlete on 24k and a Canadian Finals Champion. With her wealth of experience, it’s no surprise she has quickly become a highly competent coach to help our young athletes achieve success!

Quirky Facts: While being an amazingly talented athlete, Alex still can’t manage to walk through the gym without tripping over a piece of equipment… or even her own two legs. Yet, she can pull off an 8 element tumbling pass like it’s a walk in the park. We still don’t get how that works!

Chelsea Rae Coulter

Senior Team Coach

Being a school teacher and a new mom, Chelsea has the unique ability to connect with her athletes and can help them understand complex skills with ease and simplicity. She also has an eye for details and a gift for creative motion choreography that really helps put the unique touch to our routines!

Quirky Facts: Chelsea has a secret man voice that gets so deep, you would think she turned into the Verizon guy. However, it only seems to come out when athletes forget the simplest of motions during the routine. Oh and she also has a son who we call Spike and a daughter we call Liberty. We’re sure they have official names, but they are not recognized inside our walls as we think our names are like, way cooler. 

Brenda Thomas

Supermom & Accounts Supervisor

Brenda CheerCore

Brenda (AKA SuperMom) is the glue that holds CheerCore together. She handles all the integral tasks of the business that Sam & Sahil don’t feel like touching with a 10 foot pole. A natural problem solver, Brenda brings forth a Get Things Done attitude that’s hard to beat. Plus if you’re having a bad day, a 5 min chat with Brenda is sure to leave you smiling and joyful. Just don’t expect her to coach any front rolls.

Quirky Facts: Brenda is an overqualified back spot who is currently banned by all CheerCore members from getting behind the wheel of motor vehicle due to the fact that we like getting to our destination on time, and without fear. It’s the little things.

Kayla Pyne

Junior Coach

Kayla started off as a gymnast who fell in love with the sport of Cheer. With strong basics and the drive to achieve mastery in her skills, she has excelled as an athlete on our highest level team, 24k and is also part of our Power Tumbling program. All of this, combined with her bubbly personality has allowed her to really connect with our younger athletes and show them that they can accomplish anything they put their mind to!

Quirky Facts: Kayla is an absolute joke artist, but doesn’t even know it. Remember the show “Kids say the darndest things”? Well, Kayla is the Coaches version of that show. We always look forward to her theories and analogies or random topics, as it totally makes our day =)
