Meet The MVC A*Team

After a very successful inaugural season last year, the A*Team looks forward to another great season in 2008.

The A*Team (“A” standing for Alumni) consists of 23 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader Alumni, including women ranging from the first professional MVC team in 1984 to as recent as 2005. These ladies continue to enjoy a shared love for dance in support of the Minnesota Vikings and current MVCs. They meet every Tuesday evening for two hours to work on physical fitness, dancing, and having fun together.

The team participates in fun choreography and fantastic workouts led by team members, coaches, and many talented guest instructors. Some highlights this year include Lisa Marie Firth, from The Firm, as well as Matt Krause, Personal Trainer, and Katie Haggerty, Master Group Fitness Instructor, both from Lifetime Fitness, who will work with the team on physical fitness.

Besides practicing every Tuesday night, the A*Team has many performances planned for this year. They perform pre-game on the Plaza before most home games to help get the crowd fired up and will be joining the MVCs to do an end-zone routine during a quarter-break at the next home game October 12th.

Head Coach Heather P. and Assistant Coach Heather K. both agree, “We are thrilled to be part of the MVC family, and speaking for all the MVC, we are proud to have such wonderful women involved with the Vikings Organization.”

GO A*Team!
