Dr. Zachary Goldstein started his cheer career in high school but became serious about the sport as a member of the championship-caliber University of Delaware cheer program. While attending UD, Zach had the privilege of training with some of the most talented coaches and athletes in the history of collegiate cheer. After graduation, he worked as the health and fitness counselor at a youth shelter, while at the same time coaching All Star cheer and traveling the world as a cheerleader on the NBA's "Fan Patrol." In 2013 Zach was accepted into the United States Peace Corps, and soon after, was living in an Armenian village as a Community and Youth Development volunteer. Unfortunately, Zach's time in the Peace Corps was cut short after being hit by a drunk driver as a pedestrian; however, always finding the silver lining, his own recovery left him with a passion for Physical Therapy. After graduating from the #1 ranked University of Delaware Physical Therapy program, Dr. Zach felt that, similarly to more established sports like baseball and football, cheerleading was at the point where it deserved its own sport-specific training and rehabilitation. Since that time, Dr. Zach has been developing and testing cheerleading-specific rehab protocols and training interventions in an effort to keep up with the increasing physical and mental demands of the sport.
