Marti Smith-Head Coach
I have been coaching game and competition cheerleading for eleven years. I was the head coach of the competition cheerleaders from 2011 until I entered semi-retirement at the end of the 2017 season. I spent the 2017 season as the assistant coach in order to wean myself from the sport, but that did not work so well because now I am back to being the head coach. Competition cheerleading is my favorite type of cheerleading. It is such a rush to see how far the team progresses from the first practice in late May until the last competition in early November. The sport is rewarding for both coach and athlete. I am so proud of each of my girls because in this sport, no one person is more important or vital than any other. We are a team! We will win as a team, and we lose as a team! We are a family, and the lessons and strengths the girls build over the course of the season is so much bigger than a winning record.
My husband, Glenn, retired last year from ECMS after 29 years(plus 1 year of sick leave accumulation) and now is working as a permanent sub with Crossroads Academy. We have a 16-year-old son, Skylar, who is a Junior over at ECHS. He plays euphonium in the Wind Ensemble, tuba in Concert Band, baritone in the Rebel Regiment and Pep Band and trombone in the Jazz Band. He is also pretty interested in learning to play guitar and is very involved in his youth group, The Youth Movement, @ Rincon Church of God.
