We are glad you’re here!

We welcome all cheerleaders and tumblers to our organization. Thank you for choosing Waxhaw Flyers as your home. We pride ourselves on being a family-oriented business. Much love goes into the growth of our business. We value and respect everyone who walks through our doors! We are a faith-based gym and honor Christ. Our gym’s favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:13: – I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Cheers!

Our Coaches.

Rori Burke

My name is Rori Burke. I founded Waxhaw Flyers All-Star Cheerleading gym in 2012. I have three beautiful girls who wanted to cheer in a competitive setting. After much research, I decided to open an all-star cheerleading gym in the Waxhaw area. With much success, my staff has created a fun, loving Christian atmosphere for our athletes to learn and grow.


My career started in 1993 as a Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer. In 2012, I became a reserve officer so I could stay at home with my girls. My husband, Michael and I met in 1994 when he was hired with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. He has been extremely supportive and helpful during the last five years as our gym has transitioned and grown. A day does not go by that I do not thank God for all my blessings. Because of Him, I have an amazing family, amazing gym, and amazing cheerleaders. He has blessed me immeasurably. He is my foundation.


I have been coaching cheer for 5 years. My certifications include CPR, First Aid, AED, Group Exercise, Personal Training.


***My favorite bible verse: Galatians 5:22, But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

Coach Kynan

Coach Kynan has been in the cheer industry for over 20 years.  I am honored to announce he has chosen to move from Manhattan, NY to Waxhaw, NC to join our team.


Coach Kynan possesses many skills that will aid in both our tumble and cheer programs.  His background includes coaching all levels of cheer and tumble while taking several cheer teams to Worlds.  Coach Kynan has mastered all levels of tumble and has spent several years traveling to train tumble instructors and teach choreography.  His choreography has brought teams to Worlds.


We are so excited he has chosen WFAC to be his new home.  It may take him awhile to learn our southern language so… if he talks too fast, ask him to slow down and if he yells too loud, get over it.  He is hard, strict and a no-nonsense instructor.  While investing his time into your athlete, he will not coddle but train them correctly, ethically and with integrity.  Make sure your athlete is ready!
Coach Kynan offers Private Tumble sessions.  If a cheerleader wants to work on their current skill or gain new skills, he is available for tumbling sessions. Due to level of experience, his slots are filling up quickly.
