My name is Andrew Francis. I am 21 years old and this will be my 8th season cheerleading. I am from Toronto, Ontario and started cheerleading when I was 15 at Maple High school. As a member of that team I have won 1 provincial championship and 2 national championships. In 2008 I stepped into the allstar cheerleading world when I was recruited to Ultimate Canadian cheer and Dance to be apart of the UCC Jags for the first year they were going to attend the Cheerleading World Championships. I remained on that team for 4 seasons and placed 4th in the world in 2011. That was one of my most proud moments. My top accolades in cheerleading are the 4 years I was selected to be on Team Canada. I won 3 gold medals in 2011, 2012, 2013 in the Coed elite division. In 2014, Canada made a great decision to compete in the premier division exclusively and we managed to obtain 7th place that year. I am hoping to make Team Canada for the 2016 World Championships.
I have been coaching tumbling for 5 years and have been a team coach for 3 years. I have also had the pleasure of working with programs and Camp companies from all over Canada and the U.S. such as, ALL THINGS CHEER and Limelight Allstars Inc.
