Meet The Director

Kali Kupkowski

I am originally from California and have been living in Illinois for 7+ years. I have been apart of the cheer industry for over 20 years. I cheered in junior high, high school, college and all star. I have been coaching for 12 years in Allstar and at high schools. I have also instructed camps and judges for USA cheer and STUNT. I am USASF certified in levels 1-6. I have competed as an athlete and coach at many prestigious events including IHSA state, Cheersport, NCA, UCA, D1/D2 Summit and many others. Although I have won multiple national titles including NCA and Cheersport; my proudest moments as a coach is watching my athlete succeed in all aspects of life(including attending colleges, cheering at new levels, achieving skills, overcoming fears, maintain high GPAs and more). I am excited to continue to coach at Kids Spot and continue building new bonds and memories with our athletes and families.

Besides cheering I am also a mom to my 1 year old son and a COTA. I have multiple degrees including an AA, AAS and bachelor in elementary education. I also have a lot of “random” certification such as lifeguard instructor, tree climbing instructor, scuba diving license, Archery instructor and many more. I absolutely love being outdoors, participating in water sports and spending time with my family!
