DIRECTOR - West Side

My name is NancyEllen Elster and I am very pleased to be your WSCCA Western Washington High School Director.  I have been very active with the WSCCA since 2001 as a region rep, secretary, conference co-chair and now the high school director.  My love of cheerleading started when I cheered in high school and was reignited when I coached at Ballard High School for 14 years. In my quest to gain knowledge I encountered the WSCCA and along with making life time friends I have become passionate about the association. 


Our mission statement as an organization is to provide education and keep coaches up to date with the latest information in order to better serve programs throughout the state.  Programs of all kinds, competitive, sideline, large or small can benefit from being a part of the WSCCA. My job as the high school director is to advocate for coaches and keep them updated with all the latest changes in cheer. I want coaches to feel that they are connected to what is going on in our state and can be involved through the many events that the WSCCA has to offer. I am open to your questions and willing to help with concerns.  I look forward to meeting you and learning about your program. 



DIRECTOR - East Side
