  • Cheerleading

    Contact:

    Khaali Terrell Helki Pruitt, and Jeni Greene

    Description:

    As crowd leaders, the cheerleading team is the connection between the fans and the athletic team. The energy and enthusiasm produced by the crowd can rally a sports team to play better and boost overall morale. It is the cheerleading team’s task to unify the crowd in its efforts.

    As crowd leaders, cheerleaders should know the sports they are cheering for and understand how to choose an appropriate sideline chant. As a group, they should begin sideline chants and also make organic chants from the crowd stronger by yelling the words in unison with fans. Cheerleaders preserve school traditions and come up with new ways to improve fan involvement.

    As Spirit Raisers, cheerleaders promote and spread school pride throughout the year. Leading up to game day, they should encourage fellow students to show their spirit by setting a good example of school pride themselves. On game day, their responsibility as spirit raisers should be more emphatic. When a basket is made, they display their enthusiasm by waving poms, yelling and celebrating. If spirit is low, cheerleaders should use tactics to increase excitement, including starting a sideline chant, and executing stunts, jumps, tumbling or pyramids.

    As Ambassadors, cheerleaders should be model students, both in and out of the classroom.

    Dates and Location Club Meets:

    Cheerleaders, once chosen, will meet 2 days per week, Monday & Tuesdays for practice and 1 day per week for games which usually take place on Thursdays.  We will also have a game each Saturday during the season. We will practice from 4:30- 6:30pm in the cafeteria and loft of the FFMS gym.
