Tennessee State Director
My name is Cobie Buckingham and I have been with Champion Force for over 10 years! I started my love of sports at 5 years old when I began gymnastics classes. I went on to compete in gymnastics for 17 years. I made it all the way to Level 10 and competed as part of the Region 5 National Team. I earned a scholarship to Ball State University, where I was an all-around athlete for 4 years. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology. After college, I started coaching for CFA in the state of Ohio and fell in love with cheerleading. I saw the confidence it gave kids when they took the competition floor with their team in front of hundreds of people. That is my favorite part of this program- helping kids gain confidence!
I later got married to my husband and moved to Indiana, where I started Champion Force programs throughout the state. I now have 2 little ones of my own, and spend every minute I can with them. We love swimming in Lake Michigan, playing on the beach, and being dare-devils.
