Spirit program director and national awardwinning dance team head coach Brittney Carimi focuses more on leaps and turns than guarding and passing. The Christ Our King-Stella Maris school coach was a competitive dancer and coach long before she was a mom. Brittney stepped into the role of cheer coach at COKSM in 2014, started the competitive dance team for middle schoolers in 2015 and started the junior pom squad for students in 4th and 5th grade in 2016. For the past three years, she has had the opportunity to coach her own twelveyear-old twins Holland and Sutton on the Crusaderettes Dance Team. Currently in 7th grade, Holland and Sutton have only one remaining season left with their mom as coach, but the youngest daughter Macayle will soon follow. Brittney could not be more excited for the legacy to live on. Working at her kids’ school allows her to see them more during the day, and being their coach permits her to spend more time with them through their shared passion. feature Trav i s Ker shaw Trav i s and Sean Ker shaw Br i t tney Car imi wi th daughter s , Ho l l and and Sut ton Photo prov i ded.
