The story of Fierce started in the fall of 2012 when former cheerleaders and sisters, Brittany Sprecher and Bethany Coyle had the dream to start a small competitive cheer squad in Cascade, MD at the Fort Ritchie Community Center. They had thought maybe 20-30 athletes would try out for the team; not the nearly 60 athletes who were placed on one of four initial teams. For three seasons, Fierce was located at the Fort Ritchie Community Center.
It was at this time that Fierce Cheer relocated to a local gymnastics facility where we had 3 very successful seasons. However after three seasons, the decision was made to expand to our own facility.
For the 2018-2019 season, we finally have a cheer specific facility for our Fierce family.
