Once you have experienced excellence, you will never again be content with mediocrity.
It is with that thought in mind, that we introduce you to our staff, or more appropriately, Our Family.

Joan Lenahan, Owner & Business Manager

Joan, a successful multi business owner, has had a love for competitive cheer since childhood. After a rewarding decade of competing with her school teams including Father Judge and Temple University, coaching became a regular part of her life. Coaching of her national champion elementary school teams in Philadelphia led to her recruitment into the world of all star cheer as a choreographer, competition judge and open team competitor. 

Joan is married with two children, both of which are extremely active in sports. Connor (11) is a CRWA wrestler.  He also trains and competes with SEPA,  Apache and MPR. Emma (8) fell under the spell of competitive cheer just minutes after meeting Coach Kelly and loves competing as a Renegade with Airborne Elite All Stars! 


Completely amazed at the talent and dedication of Coach Kelly, Joan decided it was time to embark on a new business venture that would bring her love for the sport full circle. 

 

     
Coach Kelly

Kelly Foy, Owner & Program Director

Kelly is home when she’s in the gym, she has been coaching recreational and USAG competitive gymnastics for over 25 years as well as 7 years coaching All Star Cheerleading. Her coaching career started in CT and has brought her to many gyms throughout the east coast with some of the most memorable years spent in GA. The move to Atlanta coincided with the 1996 Olympics and lead to some amazing years with The Gymnastics Academy Of Atlanta.  Kelly is recognized as an expert in her field and has been an enthusiastic presenter over the years for USAG regional and national conferences.

Kelly’s full time coaching career ended in October 2004 with the birth of her first child, Lindsay, who is an Airborne Elite competitive cheerleader. She continued to coach part time when her son, Logan was born in 2006. Logan enjoys “flipping” but truly loves playing travel soccer for CRUSA.

Once Kelly and Joan put their heads together there was no question that it was the right partnership and the right time to embark on this epic journey. Now Kelly is back home, in the gym and couldn’t be happier!

Maria is a recent graduate of Morehead State University with a bachelor’s degree in University Studies with a focus on sports management. During her time at MSU, she cheered at a collegiate level all 4 years, with the all-girl squad. In 2014, 2015, and 2016 she won UCA nationals in All- Girl division 1. Also in her cheerleading career, she was honored to be on the USA national team competing with the all-girl squad in 2014 and 2015 winning two gold medals.

In 2017 and 2018, she was the assistant coach for the all-girl and coed squads at MSU. She has been involved in the sport of cheerleading since the age of five years old, allowing her to watch the sport grow into what it is today & build the skill set that she now has: level 5 tumbling and level 6 stunting! During High School she did all-stars and cheered for New Jersey Spirit Explosion, FAB 5.  She was formerly a UCA cheerleading instructor for 3 years, working with high school and collegiate level athletes during this time.

Maria proved to be the missing link at Airborne. NCA and UCA trained under one roof & working together - it doesn't get much better than that!
