The Paul Kane Cheer Team is a multi-purpose team,
performing at school events, cheering at senior football games and
competing against other cheerleading team from across the province!
From September to October our team focuses on perfecting
basic cheerleading skills and getting ready for football season! The
team learns crowd involvement cheers and several dances that are
performed at half-time during the football games. Attendance at
football games will continue as long our team plays!
In October our training focus shifts to competitive
cheerleading. Our team begins to master advanced skills to be used
in the two-and-a-half minute routine that we will take to competition!
The routine incorporates a combination of acrobatic stunting, dance,
jumps, a team cheer and gymnastics.
Our cheerleading team is open to both boys and
girls. Athletes who are chosen for our team are expected to attend one
open gym night per week at a local gymnastics or cheerleading gym, in
addition to team practices three times a week. The team will practice
Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays as well as a Saturday practice once a
month. All practices and performances are mandatory for all athletes.
Those athletes who are chosen will be expected to juggle their school
and team commitments.
We look for cheerfulness, team-work and a
willingness to work hard, as well as physical skills like strength and
flexibility. Previous cheer experience is not required.
