We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, October 25, 2022.
Teams practice 2-3 times per week and compete in Illinois Cheer Association sanctioned competitions. While no prior experience is necessary, it is helpful to have dance or tumbling skills. Teams will also cheer at several weekend Golden Eagles football games and may be invited to appear at local events. Practices begin in early July and are held 3 days a week. Sideline/halftime cheering and competitions will begin in September. Missed practices may result in the athlete not being able to fully participate in half time performances and/or competitions. The 3rd-4th grade teams participate in at least one competition and 5th-8thgrade teams in at least 3. All teams perform at the Cheer Showcase, and may participate in the State Championship(December 2-4).
