VARSITY FOOTBALL CHEERLEADING
The purpose of our varsity cheerleading squad is to provide school spirit not only from the sidelines but also within our school community and to motivate our community to attend all sporting events.
The Athletic Boosters Club will cover more than half the cost. If your daughter wants her name on the back of the warm-up jacket, then you would be responsible for paying for the jacket. Each cheerleader is required to purchase her own shoes (these are specific) and the summer cheer camp. There is a fundraiser the cheerleaders will do to help fund future camps.
You must wear your practice uniforms and cheer shoes. You must also bring your binders and poms.
