WELCOME TO SPIRIT!

Spirit began in 2004 with customized private clinics and changed the cheer industry in Michigan. Since then, we have expanded throughout the Midwest using our unique methods to help teams achieve skills they once thought impossible. Spirit continues to make the impossible possible every day - growing, improving and never settling for less than the best!

MEET OUR OWNER: MARY MILKE

Mary is a former Class A State Champion Coach. She credits the success of her teams to the dedication of the athletes, parents and coaching staff, as well as the numerous people who have helped throughout the years. It is Mary's firm belief that a coach can best serve his/her team by providing a wide variety of experiences. She also believes that no coach can - or should have to - do it alone! Thus, North American Spirit was born. Spirit can help you take your team to the next level like no one else can. Mary has been married to her husband, Jeff, for 29 years, has two beautiful children, Scott and Julia, and has been an official and choreographer for 25 years.
