Cheerleaders are students who promote good sportsmanship and citizenship through their daily example. Members of the cheerleading squad will be expected to maintain a higher standard of behavior, dedication, and academic achievement throughout the entire year.
Cheerleading tryouts are held within the first month of school each year and open to all girls in grades 6 through 8. Girls cheer at games, and at each Pep Rally. Cheerleaders also encourage school spirit at occasional school and community functions. During the 2016-2017 school year, we also have cheerleaders in grades 2-5 and a pep squad for grades k-1. Students practices are set by the coach.
Two teams of cheerleaders are chosen each year to cheer for Ascension Catholic School and teams practice a minimum of twice a week. Cheerleading is a year long commitment. There are fees to cover various costs and some additional costs for uniforms and shoes.
All questions should be directed to the Athletic Director, who can be contacted through the school office.
