Varsity Cheer

Members of the varsity cheer squad are able to confidently lead a crowd, and show a tremendous amount of school spirit. They are also required to have previous tumbling experience. We look for athletes with strong running tumbling (round off backhandspring, layouts, or fulls) and solid standing tumbling as well (standing back tuck). A once a week tumbling class is required. This squad competes in the Small Varsity Advanced Division and their competition season runs from November through April.

JV Cheer

Members of the JV cheer squad are able to confidently lead a crowd, and show a tremendous amount of school spirit. A standing backhandspring, round off backhandsprings, and round off tucks are skills we like to see at this level. No previous stunting experience is necessary, however, mastering level 2 or 3 stunting skills are encouraged. High energy and spirit are required for this squad. They compete in the Junior Varsity Novice division and their competition season runs from December through April.
