Meet the Team

You’re in Great Hands



Parent Liason and Event

 I am responsible for running the club. I liaise with parents, organise events and competitions and generally all the boring administration stuff. I run another business as well and so am very busy but I cherish the time spent with our wonderful athletes - they keep me young! 



Head Coach

I started Electrix by accident in 2015 when I wanted to cheer but there wasn’t a club in Nelson. I love coaching and being part of these amazingyoungpeople’slives.Ihavejustfinishedmydegreein Educational Psychology and Linguistics and been accepted onto the Masters programme for 2022. I am passionate about helping young people understand their potential and place in the world whether through coaching or my work in local schools!




I have been with Electrix for five years as a recreational and then competitive athlete. I have been lead coaching for two seasons and love working with our younger athletes and school teams. I also love working with our tumble classes and watching athletes achieve new skills. My dream is to be a midwife and while I wait for that to start I can pour my heart into coaching our wonderful cheerleading teams.


Karlee Macfarlane


I can’t wait to be a part of the Electrix family. I have been cheering for 12 years and coaching for 7. I was an athlete on team NZ all girl senior and junior in 2018 in which we placed 2nd and 3rd. I have lots of international competition experience and have competed in many places around the world such as China, Hawaii, Orlando and Australia. I am very enthusiastic about helping everyone reach their full potential and will do what it takes to get people where they want to be.




I was a cheerleader for 12 years in Mexico and saw the sport evolve from just cheering on the sidelines to being the centre of attention and win the respect of other sports. I love being back in cheer as a coach. I am an assistant coach on several teams and my main focus is on flyers and helping them to become consciously aware of and understand their bodies so that they can control them and stay safe.

Competitive Cheer

Elite Athletes

Competitive Cheerleading is a cheer sport for boys and girls aged 5+ where teams perform a two and a half minute routine at national and international competitions against other clubs.  Each routine consists of stunting, tumble, jumps and dance and our teams practice for two hours twice a week.  The teams are divided into age and level categories.

Recreational Cheer

Energetic and Fun

Recreational cheerleading is for those who want to be part of this energetic and fun cheer sport but without the time and financial commitment of competitions.  The teams are also divided by age but there can be a variety of tumble levels in a team.


Tumble Classes

Beginners to the Experienced

Our tumble classes are for those people who like to learn anything from a cartwheel to a standing tuck and beyond.  We work with the athletes on perfecting techniques for each level to ensure a smooth progression to the next skill.
