Staff - 1 to 10 of 10


Ryan McGovern


We opened up Spirit Athletics in May of 2011 after years of having a deep passion for this sport. My wife and I felt we had something to offer to the growth of cheerleading in the Tri State Area, and we wanted to share our love for the sport with the athletes and families in the area. It has been a tremendous experience becoming a part of these kids' lives and watching them grow into the athletes they are now.
