Types of Middle School Cheers
Cheerleaders in junior high should be taught middle school cheers that are appropriate, simple and easily transferable from one sport to another. Most middle school squads include a mix of cheerleaders with prior experience and those without. Keeping the cheers simple will help all the cheerleaders focus on learning and perfecting the fundamental skills of cheerleading. Most middle school cheer squads will cheer during pep rallies, basketball games and football games. Start by teaching your squad a Hello Cheer and a few generic cheers for team spirit that can be transferred easily between sporting events.
Share This Post. High School cheerleading is where all the fun begins. You have summer camp, games, homecoming, pep rallies, and many other exciting events to look forward to. You hold a very important job as a high school cheerleader, so we want to show you exactly what to expect with our guide to high school cheerleading! Tryouts Tryouts are a great way to start a new year. Depending on the coach or cheerleading advisor at your school, the tryout date can be scheduled anytime from late winter to early spring, and the process usually lasts an entire week. Each day until the day of tryouts, you will practice and try to perfect each move. Some schools may set aside time at the clinics to work on tumbling and stunt skills each day as well. On the day of tryouts you should be well rested, eat a healthy breakfast and lunch, and drink lots of water. Most high schools run their tryouts similar, but at all of them, you will be expected to dress neatly, with your hair pulled up, and no jewelry.
Everyone has that stereotypical idea of a cheerleader: cute, peppy, bows in her hair. And that was me, from kindergarten to eighth grade. I loved being on the squad, from the girly parts like curling each other's hair for competitions to trying new stunts at practice. But I also loved watching the football games as we cheered — sometimes I was more focused on the plays than our routines! Every time someone scored, I wished that I was the one in the end zone. I grew up tossing a football and going to games with my dad.
