A student trying out for cheerleader must first be a member of the Dance Team for the entire year prior to trying out. The student must maintain a grade average of 70 with an S in conduct. These grades must be maintained throughout the school year.
Any student trying out for cheerleader will be given the opportunity to display his/her ability as a cheerleader. Each participant will perform one individual cheer, one group cheer, and one dance routine. Cheerleaders will be selected through teacher vote and a panel of judges (2/3 judge vote and 1/3 teacher recommendation). Results will be posted as soon as the results are tabulated.
Cheerleaders are selected each year in the Spring. Sixth and seventh grade students who are chosen to be cheerleaders will serve the following year.
Practice is held every Wednesday in the gym from 3:30-5:00.
