As a Central cheerleader, you are expected to stay on top of your grades, as cheer is a second priority from grades. The purpose of cheerleading is to place girls in a leadership role, learn responsibility, be a part of a team. Being on the cheer squad students are representing the student body while keeping the crowd entertained.
As cheerleaders, you are the team behind the team. You root for players, entire sports teams, and athletic departments. Cheerleaders are a driving force that can motivate sporting teams to play the best games possible.
“The cheerleaders impact the school as a support system for the sports along with the face of the Central High,” Head Cheer Coach Stacy Alexander.
March 7th here on campus in the library there will be a mandatory cheerleading parent meeting held. It will start at 6:00 pm, during the meeting you will be provided information about the expectation and commitment prior to tryouts.
