FULLERTON, CA - Hope International is proud to announce its addition of STUNT as a sport during the 2020-21 academic year and onward. The Royals' Athletic Director, John Turek, and the administration of the University are now accepting applications to fill the position of Head Coach for STUNT. Letters of interest and other inquiries about the position should be directed to John Turek, [email protected].


STUNT is thefastest growing female sport in the country, according to Stuntthesport.org. "It removes the crowd-leading element and focuses on the technical and athletic components of cheer, including partner stunts, pyramids, basket tosses, group jumps and tumbling. These elements are put together in short routines that both teams must perform head-to-head on the floor at the same time. The team that executes the skills best wins the round and the point, and has the opportunity to determine which of routine level will be called next. With four quarters of play – partner stunts, pyramids & tosses, jumps & tumbling, and team routine – STUNT is an exciting sport to play, coach and watch".

"We at STUNT and USA Cheer are excited for Hope International University to be adding a STUNT program to their athletic department! Located in California, where STUNT is an official high school sport, we know that this STUNT program is going to take off as it gives our female athletes the opportunity to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level while receiving an excellent education," said Amy Haney, Director of College STUNT. 

The Royals will be the third Golden State Athletic Conference Member to add stunt, joining Vanguard University and William Jessup University.
