Sports and Activities


All students (girls AND boys), grades fifth thru eighth, are welcome to join us for an eight-week cheer clinic beginning Sunday, January 21. The cheerleaders will learn cheers, pom dance, jumps, and basic stunting technique. This is a coed team, and boys will learn a classic, collegiate cheer style. The goal is to have FUN and to learn the basics of sideline cheerleading. The cheerleaders will perform alongside the Cosgriff float in the Saint Patrick’s Day parade, and there will be an official showcase performance for friends and family (date TBD). Practice attendance is mandatory (with exceptions for illness, etc); considering the nature of the sport, all team members must be present for choreography and stunting.
