NIKKI VAN DEN WIJNGAERT

I’m Nikki, 30 years old and living in Belgium. In my daily life I studied special education and right now I work in a nursing home with people with dementia.


I started cheerleading about 10 years ago, coming from gymnastics and dance in the past and having coached both of those. A friend of mine saw a new club being started and told me they thought it would be something I would like. I got curious, went to an open practice and basically never left…


After only one year of doing cheerleading a position as assistant coach opened up for the senior elite (level 5) team I was on and I kind of rolled into it. After a few years of combining both coaching and being an athlete on the team I decided to fully focus on coaching.


I have coached both senior open and youth / junior teams since then. The levels I mostly work with are level 2, 3 and 5 and I have experience with both all-girl and coed teams.


In season 2018-2019 the Belgian Cheerleading Federation started the initiative for the first Belgian national team. I tried out and made it on the team. We participated in the ICU worlds 2019. That season the senior team I coach also won nationals.
