Wissahickon Cheerleading Association


        "Head Coach"


"Hi everyone! My name is Dana and I’m so excited to be a part of the  Wiss Cheer organization and taking on this new experience and title as Head Coach! I am a former cheerleader for Wissahickon High School and Middle School.   Although I did not cheer in college, I still found myself paying attention  to the cheerleaders and their stunting, rather than the actual sports game 😆. 

I currently work for Lower Merion School District and waitress part time at  Phil’s Tavern (stop by and say hi!). I am a born & raised local and in my free time you can find me out and about exercising, taking a walk or hike, trying new restaurants, binge watching a new show, & being with family and friends.

Count down to the season is on! Go Blue & Gold! 💙💛”   


   "Assistant Coach"


Hi Cheer Families!  I am Tina Casani, cofounder and one of our coaches for Wiss Cheer, certified with both USA Cheer and NAYS. I’ve worked for a large healthcare company for the past 31 years and have an 11 year old daughter, Vanessa, at Stony Creek Elementary.  Born and raised in Lansdale, Pa, then moved to the Blue Bell area where I currently reside with my husband John, Vanessa, and 2 very crazy dogs. I cheered most of my young adult life, having my mom as a team parent and assistant coach. I now get to fulfill my dream of doing the same with my own daughter.

My passion for working with kids and my daughters love for cheer was the push we needed to bring more awareness to the sport.  With so many challenges kids face today, the call for more structure and building their confidence was evident.  Now entering our 3rd season, we are super excited to continue this mission for our team and the community.

Here we go, Lets Go Wiss!
