Every cheerleader gets fired up to pump up the crowd and promote school spirit. On Friday, Sept. 17 the Warrior Cheerleaders had a little cheer night with the elementary grade school girls grades kindergarten through fifth grade. The Warriors’ cheerleading squad had practices for the camp on Tuesday, Sept. 14th and Thursday, Sept. 16th from after school until 5 p.m. before Friday night’s game against the Northwestern Tigers. The future Warrior cheerleaders performed at half-time last Friday night with a special showcase – a dance and two cheers- where the campers showed what they learned to their family and friends. Little Cheer Night on Friday was a huge success, and the support to CHS football, along with future cheerleaders in action was welcomed by the Calhoun community.
According to the USA Cheer Association website, “Cheerleading helps children develop a sense of body awareness and a range of motor and coordination skills. When young cheerleaders take classes they learn how to use different parts of their bodies in a variety of ways. Participation in cheerleading can also help young athletes develop skills that are beneficial to other sports and activities as well. Additionally, your kids will meet new friends, have fun, and work on independence.”
