WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO:
The competition/football cheer team cheers at football games and also attends Regional, State and National competitions. Being a part of this cheer team has many rewards! Valuable experience including teamwork, determination, encouragement by peers, development of friendships, increased self-confidence, learning to set individual long-term and short-term goals, cultivating tumbling/stunting skills, and improving physical conditioning. One of our many goals is to prepare cheerleaders for their future at the high school level. In return, the school gains pride, school spirit, and leadership through their participation!
In order to try out for the for the competition/football cheer squad, the student must be enrolled at Liberty Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. Competitive cheerleading is a very time-consuming activity and requires a lot of time outside of school hours. The season runs from April to February. Parents must also accept monetary obligations.
TRYOUTS INFORMATION:Below I have attached the plan for all LMS Spirit Teams moving forward. We are unable to have try-outs until the state restrictions due to COVID-19 are lifted. In the meantime, please use these resources to help you. In the document below there are workouts (general workout, stretches, jump training) as well as material to help practice and keep your skills sharp (cheer, dance, and chant). Please make sure to also sign up for the Competition Cheer Google Classroom page! The code is also on the document attached to this email.I will be able to accept videos during this time and provide feedback on any of the above material! You will be able to post videos in Google Classroom and that is where you will receive feedback as well!
Have questions? Contact Head Coach Sara Tolleson. I will be happy to help you at any time!
