Major Events in Cheer

The next three months will be a very busy time

  Before joining cheer, I used to always think that all cheerleaders did was perform on the sidelines at football and basketball games. A lot of people seem to be under the impression that being a cheerleader is no work and all play, but they are mistaken.

  In the coming months, the El Modena cheer squad will be very busy with the eighth grade visits, the showcase, and tryouts for next year. El Modena’s competition team will also be busy, with two competitions coming up in the next few weeks.

  On February 9th, eighth graders from Santiago and McPherson will be coming to visit El Modena, their future alma mater. Cheer is involved to welcome our visitors to the school, in hopes of making a good impression.

  Also in February, the cheer program will be hosting their second annual showcase. This event works as a fundraiser for cheer. In this showcase, both JV and Varsity will be performing separate routines, and one with the whole team. Mark February 27 on your calendar, because it’s something you certainly wouldn’t want to miss.

  March brings two more competitions for El Mo cheer’s competition team, and hopefully they will continue to succeed as they have been in previous meets.

  Cheer clinics run through the week of April 11th, with tryouts that Friday, April 15th. Anyone interested in joining the 2016 – 2017 cheer team should come try out. Tryouts involve learning a dance and cheer, with learning how to stunt and jump as well.
