Season 2 of the Netflix docuseries Cheer picks up right where season 1 left off. The show tracks the Navarro Cheer team's path to the 2021 National Cheerleaders Association and the National Dance Alliance Collegiate National Championship in Daytona, Florida.
Of course, a cheerleading competition just isn't the same without a rival—and Navarro's is their longstanding opponent TVCC, a.k.a. the Trinity Valley Cardinal Cheerleaders. While Navarro has its own fair share of standout athletes (like Gabi Butler and Maddy Brum, to name a few), TVCC brings the heat with Jada Wooten, a talented flyer and tumbler who's a force to be reckoned with on the mat.
Here's everything to know about Jada, from her killer skills to where she is now:

In season 2, Jada is determined to beat Navarro at Daytona.
This time around, TVCC will stop at nothing to beat Navarro at the championships in Daytona—and for Jada, it's personal. After Cheer season 1 showed TVCC losing to Navarro, Jada has made it her mission to lead her team to victory.
Throughout the season, it's clear that Jada is a major asset for TVCC. Coach Vontae Johnson says she's stepped into her own as a leader for the other cheerleaders, and her stunts are unmatched.
She's had her fair share of challenges on the mat.
While Jada's flips and tricks may look effortless, cheerleading greatness came with a price. Jada recalls fighting through "mental blocks" that led to injuries, similar to the "twisties" that caused gymnast Simone Biles to drop out of some of her events at the Tokyo Olympics.
Jada shared in an old Instagram post that injuries kept her out of cheerleading for two months before she tumbled with TVCC for the first time. "I’m proud of what I did today (absolutely killed it, even though I am OUT of shape.) and how I focused on my team and myself," she said at the time:
Still, Jada pushed through to achieve her goal.
While season 2's ending is a little unclear, it turns out that Jada did help TVCC secure a win over Navarro at Daytona. "Trusted the process 🤩 #nattychamps #CCFC ☝🏽," she captioned a photo with the competition's gigantic trophy.
Today, Jada cheers for San Houston State University.
And, it looks like Jada is headed to Daytona again this year, according to the team's IG:
"We want to give a 𝗕𝗜𝗚 shoutout to our amazing choreographers for the routines they put together! Our 𝐊𝐀𝐓𝐒 couldn’t be any more excited to perform them in Daytona! Thank you so much!" the post's caption read.
So, while Jada's time on Cheer is probably over, there could be a second ring in her future...
