November 25, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

We got the chance to interview Stacie Kinder, she is the Director of Cheerleading for the NFL team Tennessee Titans.  Learn more about the team by visiting their website http://www.titansonline.com/cheerleaders/  You can also follow them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/tennesseetitanscheerleaders  and Twitter https://twitter.com/titanscheers


1.  How long have you been in the position? 

10 years

2.  Tell us about the makeup of your squad.

We have 26 women with extensive dance backgrounds.  They are 19-32 years old.

3.  Tell us a little bit about the history of the Titans Cheerleaders.

The Tennessee Titans moved from Houston (previously the Houston Oilers) in 1997.  In 1999, the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders debuted.  Initially, it was a co-ed, more collegiate style team.  In 2004, the team changed to a more dance-style, female-only team.

4.  What are some goals you have set for your team? 

We want to be featured in the national media (si.com, nfl.com, etc) and also have one of the top-selling swimsuit calendars in the league. We strive to be great athletes as well as dancers, holding fitness as a primary goal in addition to great performances

5.  What is the most exciting thing for you about game days? 

The most exciting part on game day is when the cheerleaders first take the field prior to kickoff. It gives me chill bumps every time.

6.  The start of the season was just a few weeks ago, what is the preparation like for your first home game performance?

We prepare all summer for the start of the season.  We rehearse 3 days a week and have one fitness training session each week as well.

7.  Tell us about what a typical Game Day is like.

 Game days begin at 7:45am with a production meeting and then pre-game rehearsal at 8:15. We then start hair and makeup, eat breakfast and by 10:30 we are busy greeting fans at pre-game appearances. We usually don’t leave the building until nearly an hour after the final second ticks down in the 4th quarter.

8.  What makes your team unique this year versus prior years? 

We have some amazingly talented professional dancers on this team in addition to a team member who is the reigning Miss Tennessee USA and will represent the state and the Titans at Miss USA on NBC next spring.

9.  Anything else you want us to know about the Titans Cheerleaders? 

These women are triple threats- talented, beautiful, and intelligent.  But, the most unique thing about our team is our sense of humor.  We undoubtedly have the funniest team in the league, with several budding comediennes in the group!
