Linda Rae Chappell has been coaching amateur and professional cheerleaders for more than 30 years. She currently serves as the spirit coordinator at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, where she directs a campus program of approximately 75 athletes who cheer and dance. She is also a full-time faculty member teaching health, science, coaching, and physical education methods classes. Chappell's national teams have consistently placed in the top six in both cheer and dance divisions.

After cheering in high school and college, Chappell started her own business, the Dynamic Cheerleaders Association, Inc. (DCA), at the age of 23. With DCA she established cheerleading camps at college and university campuses in 30 states, trained her staff of some 350 college cheerleaders to conduct the camps, and conducted six national cheerleading championships. Through DCA she also established a national mail-order business for cheerleaders' clothing, accessories, and educational materials.

Chappell has presented numerous seminars, clinics, and workshops for cheerleading coaches and advisors, and she has delivered motivational seminars at national coaches conventions.

A prolific author, she has written on spirit raising and leadership, sportsmanship, fund-raising, and coach training. Many coaches have referred to her first book, The Spirit Book, as the ""cheerleading Bible."" She also has supervised production of books and videos on safety rules for the National Federation of State High School Associations, and she has produced and directed instructional videos in cheer and dance.

In 1986 Chappell established a coed cheerleading squad for the Kansas City Chiefs NFL football team, coaching the squad until 1990.

A member of the Missouri Cheerleading Coaches Association, Chappell is a former cheerleading director for the Midwest Missouri Youth Sports Association. In 1987 she earned a master's degree in educational administration from the University of Missouri.

Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a great place to start for new coaches. Long ago when I was in High School cheer, our coaches would just sit in a classroom and never come out to see us, help us get organized or cheer us on. They were rather invisible! As a new coach, I found a lot of helpful hints and ways to evaluate how my squad is doing as individuals and as a team. There was quite a bit about raising school spirit, and I felt that it had better coverage than most of the other books I've looked at. While the stunts and poses chapters were less extensive than other books, they did use several chapters to show and discuss them, leaving more details to other books. It is a great companion to other physical 'How to' books.
