SCAA Cheerleading Commissioner & Head Coach
Dawn M. Holmes
SCAA Cheerleading Assistant Commissioner Coach
Michele Ruck comes to SCAA with over 20 years of cheerleading experience. She cheered for many years before becoming a coach herself. Michele previously commissioned the cheer program at SCAA before ‘retiring’ her position three years ago to care for her family. During her time at SCAA, Michele and her coaching staff won many competitions within the Pop Warner circuit as well as the competitive cheer circuit. SCAA was known for their game day spirit on the sidelines at the football games, their FUN, energetic and entertaining half time routines as well as their show stopping competition routines. Michele has a true passion for cheerleading and is very proud to be a part of the SCAA cheer program and feels very fortunate to have this opportunity. Her focus is to provide a positive environment in which each child will be able to explore their individual capability as a cheerleader as well as learn how to work together as a team. Michele believes that if you have a “can do” attitude, anything is possible. You’ll find that Michele is a go-getter and expects the squads to go out there and give it their best each and every practice, game and/or competition. Michele is looking forward to being a part of the SCAA Cheer Family again and looks forward to a successful season! The squads will be working on learning and improving old and new techniques and exploring new fundamentals based on squad capability.
SCAA Cheerleading Choreographer for Levels 2 & 3
Coach Allisha was born and raised in Rock Hill, SC. Cheer has always held a special place in Allisha’s heart. She was involved in the sport very young at the age of 6 and continued through her high school years on the Varsity game day and competition team at Rock Hill High School (9th-12th). By her junior year, she was named captain, and was awarded the leadership award by her senior year. She went on to continue her cheer career at Spartanburg Methodist College for 2 years. She then decided to take the leap to try out for UCA and officially became a member of the Staff in 2015. Allisha had the amazing opportunity to travel and spend her summers for the next 6 years instructing cheer to athletes of all ages, all while coaching the Varsity game day and competition team at Northwestern High School (2017-2020). Allisha is currently the Choreographer for the SeaGals at SCAA for levels 2 & 3 teams. “Choreography is something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I never thought was possible. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
SCAA Cheerleading Assistant Coach
Aviana Bralley (Collins)
I'm Aviana Collins and I am a Registered Nurse. I have cheered for many years and developed my love for cheerleading here at Steele Creek myself. I loved the excitement of competing and now I get to provide my unique point of view to the routines and hopefully help girls fall in love with the sport. In addition to coaching my skills as a Registered Nurse provide me with the tools to keep our athletes safe by teaching safe techniques to prevent injuries from occuring. Looking forward to a very exciting year!!!

Isabelle M. Holmes
Hi! I'm Coach Isabelle and have been coaching the Steele Creek SeaGals for five years now. I began as a junior assistant coach observing and learning the sport as I had a dance and tumbling background. I developed a love of cheer while watching such enthusiastic coaches and young athletes compete on competitive stages. My main role is the music engineer at each competition and home football games. I enjoy watching the young girls grow into dedicated cheerleaders and develop a love for the art of cheer. I have also participated on the college dance team for two years now as well. Looking forward to another year of growth and development.
