The football season is back in action. Not a weekend goes by around these parts of town where football isn't the main attraction. And, football would not be the same without that group of spunky, glamour girls cheering from the sidelines. Right? Without cheerleaders, wouldn't football be dull and boring? Ok, well I guess that was a stretch for those diehard fans. But the fact is, cheerleaders and football go hand in hand.

Did you know that cheerleading is a team sport which originated in the U.S.? The mission of a cheerleader is to help draw attention to the game and encourage audience participation. Cheering pumps up the crowd and motivates the players. We rely on our cheerleaders to convey school spirit, while supporting the football team. Our squad promotes fitness, self-esteem, trust, enthusiasm and fun! Here are a few photos of our first game. L-E-T-S G-O!
