At TCA, we strive to secure the best coaches Northwest Indiana has to offer, and we know we have succeeded! Our coaches can boast extensive years of cheerleading and coaching experience and knowledge. We uphold high standards that we instill into our cheerleaders. We set high expectations for our athletes knowing they can rise to the occasion. We are proud of our coaching staff and their love of cheerleading and children. Even though our coaches all share a love and passion for cheerleading, the most important thing our coaches have in common is an overwhelming sense of Family. And that is what sets TCA apart from any other gym; we have a strong, family-centered coaching staff that considers TCA cheerleaders and families to be a part of their own families.

Meet Our TCA Staff: Amanda Facer—Cheer  Director/Coach

Coach Amanda Coach Amanda 2

Amanda has an extensive background when it comes to cheerleading and coaching. Her Cheerleading experience started in 1997, and she has been cheering or coaching ever since then. In high school, she cheered on the All-American Cheerleading Team and performed during half-time of the 2005 Orange Bowl. Her skills were exceedingly strong, which earned her a college cheerleading scholarship. In addition to cheerleading, she also has five years of gymnastics training. In regards to coaching, Amanda has been involved at the All-Star level since 2006, while also coaching tumbling and gymnastics.  Amanda earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, with a specialization in Family Studies, and she is a Developmental Therapist in Chesterton. She lives in Chesterton with her husband and three children.  She attends church at VNC and loves her cheer and family time. Amanda is an energetic, outgoing, kind, and caring person who adores her cheer family and cheerleaders deeply.

Mickey’s early experience lies within the Pom-Pons/Dance Team area in which she participated throughout Junior High and High School. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English Teaching with minors in Special Education (mild interventions). She then earned a Master’s Degree in Education followed by a second Master’s Degree in School Counseling. In addition to the work she does with TCA, she taught Special Education for three years, switched to English teaching for 16 years, and is back to teaching Special Education at Chesterton High School.  At CHS, she is also the assistant Cheerleading Coach.  Mickey lives in Chesterton with her husband, daughter (who has been cheering since 2009), and lots fur babies! Mickey absolutely loves working and coaching for TCA, and cares deeply for the cheerleaders, families and other coaches she works with. She is passionate about what she does and knows she has found her calling with TCA. She strives to keep and open line of communication between TCA Parents and the TCA Director and Coaches. Mickey is always here for the TCA Cheerleaders and their Families and is one of the “go-to” people if anything is needed.

Nicole Wilson— Head Coach

Coach Nicole

Nicole’s experience in all facets of cheerleading is outstanding and widespread—she has been involved with cheerleading for most of her life. She cheered through High School and all four years of college. She has coached at all levels and in all categories: High School Cheerleading, College Cheerleading, and Mini through Senior Levels of All-Star Cheerleading. In addition to coaching at TCA, Nicole is a full-time Physical Education Teacher for the Chesterton Schools. After her two daughters were born (who both now cheer for TCA), Nicole took a few years off from coaching; she is now ecstatic to finally be back in the game. Nicole’s personality is exuberant and loving. She cares deeply for her cheerleaders and the quality of her coaching skills are evident when she works with them; they absolutely adore her. She does not get through a single practice without receiving at least 10 hugs.
