Pam Duke- Owner/Coach:

I began coaching varsity cheerleading at James M Bennett High School from 1993-1996. From 1996-2000 I coached varsity cheereleading at Parkside High School, where I developed a competitive team.  The team won many regional and National Championships.  I then began to coach at Salisbury University from 2000-2004.  In 2006 I began Nor' Eastern Storm All stars.  In our 10 years we have won numerous Regional, National and  US Finals championships. Our gym has received the IEP award for excellence, we were the 2015 USASF Small Program of the Year and the 2016 CDE Program of the Year. I have 5 amazing children as well as 4 grandchildren.  I am retired from the motel business so I now focus entirely on making Nor' Eastern Storm a program that families love being a part of. This gym is my passion and the athletes are like my own children.  My goal is to share my knowlege and love of the sport of cheerleading with young people as well as teach them life skills to carry through their lives.

I am proudly USASF level 4 credentialed in both tumbling and stunting. I have coached All-Star cheerleading for 10 years at STORM, but before that I cheered at the high school, college and open all-star levels. I truly enjoy coaching, my goal is to teach the love of cheerleading to the next generation and to teach the kids to work hard for what they want in life. Teaching kids self confidence through the sport of cheerleading and watching them grow mentally, physically and emotionally, is what I love and find rewarding. We are a true family at STORM and I feel blessed to have so many kids in our program to call my "own". Currently, I am a special education teacher in Pocomoke, MD. When I am not teaching at school or STORM, I am spending time with my wonderful husband Carson and amazing son Colby. These two are my world! I am blessed that I am able to share my love for cheer and dance with so many others and have my supportive family by my side.

I am currently USASF levels 1 & 2 credentialed and I am excited to further my certification. I began gymnastics at a young age and invested 12 years into the sport. After gymnastics, I took on cheerleading and dance for 3 years, ultimately falling in love with both. It has been an honor since 2011 to be a coach at Nor’Eastern Storm All-Stars. I have had the privilege to coach several cheer and dance teams since I began, from tinys to seniors and our amazing special needs athletes. The best part about being a coach at NES is watching the kids achieve skills and exceed their own expectations. After graduating from college, I began working as a Social Worker at PRMC. I am also CPR and first aid certified.

As an extension of my love for my own cheering years, I began coaching in 1984.  Since my first JR. high team, I have led all levels in high school and all star cheerleading; started the very 1st all-star program on the Eastern Shore(’94); won multiple local, state and National titles and have enjoyed the journey.  My certifications include 1st Aid, CPR & Concussion Protocol,  USASF certified Level 5 tumbling, stunts, tosses and pyramids. My day job, teaching physical education, helps my ability to analyze elements, determine corrections and communicate with my athletes. My goal is to help every athlete develop into a well-rounded, confident adult.

I work for Wicomico County Board of Education as a Registered Nurse. I was a high school cheerleader and dancer.  I have always loved to cheer and dance. This will be my 12th year coaching all-star cheerleading and my 5th year with Storm! I am USASF credentialed in levels 1 & 2. I have coached minis, youth, junior and senior teams.  I enjoy teaching all the athletes new skills and tumbling and then watching them perform at competition.  This gym has an awesome group of athletes, parents, coaches and director.  There’s no place I would rather be than here at this place called STORM!

I am a Towson University graduate that has an extensive background in both coaching and competing in gymnastics and cheerleading. As an athlete, I have proudly competed for a few all-star teams around the Salisbury area, but ultimately ended her career cheering for both Maryland Twisters F5 and Maryland Twisters Black Ice (2008-2010). With those teams, I earned myself a few national titles, air time on America’s Got Talent, and a 4th place finish at the 2009 Cheerleading Worlds. For the past 8 years, I have been coaching in some form, whether it be tumbling, cheerleading, or gymnastics. In my spare time, I enjoy running and competing in multi-sport events. With 5 seasons of coaching at Nor’ Eastern Storm under my belt, I am excited to be back again for another great season, great kids, and lots of fun!
