- Warning: This article contains spoilers from Cheer season 2.
During the first season of Cheer, the Navarro cheerleading team detailed its struggle to win a national championship. One of the obstacles in the way–along with unexpected injuries, a difficult routine, and balancing academics and athletics–was a frequently-cited rivalry with the nearby Trinity Valley Community College.
For the second season of the show (which dropped on January 12), Cheer not only documents Navarro’s preparation for its Daytona competition, but introduces Trinity Valley Community College and their own challenges in the months before the two schools go head to head.
Trinity Valley serves as a constant pressure to Navarro and vice versa. Throughout the second season, both schools’ coaches and students refer to their rival as “the team down the road” or “the people down the street” like a boogeyman ready to pounce on the coveted first place trophy lest the team makes a mistake or has weaker choreography. It’s the perfect extra tension to see how hard each team prepares for the upcoming event, and how both fare through various challenges, including the pandemic.
With a whole new team to follow, Netflix has a new slate of cheerleaders to introduce viewers to. One of the standouts on the Trinity Valley team is Jada Wooten, who serves as a leader for veterans and newcomers alike. But at the end of the season (spoiler!) Jada announces she’s leaving Trinity Valley for her next adventure. Of course, fans of the show want to know more about the new Cheer addition.
Here’s what we know about Jada Wooten from Cheer.
Who Is Jada Wooten From Cheer?
We first meet Jada Wooten in Season 2 of Cheer. She’s a lead tumbler and flyer at Trinity Valley Community College, and coach Vontae Johnson notes she’s a strong leader for other members of the cheerleading team.
This season, Wooten is determined to get a win for her team. After losing in 2019 (that’s season one of Cheer) to Navarro, she wants to walk away from Trinity Valley with a championship ring. But getting there is anything but easy.
Throughout the season, Wooten refers to a number of mental blocks she’s experienced over the years. Much like Simone Biles’ highly publicized “twisties,” Wooten says she went through “mental blocks” which caused her injury as a tumbler and flyer. In early 2019, she spent months recovering from a fall prior to joining the TVCC team, according to her Instagram. She credited her coach Vontae Johnson for helping her “trust the process” and move past the injury.
By the end of the season, Wooten seems to gain even more confidence, advise her new teammates, and eventually help Trinity Valley secure the win at Daytona. Afterwards, she says it’s time for her to move on. Filming ended in April 2021, and since then, Wooten transferred to Sam Houston State University and joined their cheer team. In December 2021, she posted a video to her Instagram, saying she’s currently working on her tumbling skills.

It looks like that’s the end of Wooten’s time on Cheer. But who knows? Maybe she’ll return briefly as an alumni in season 3.
