Students get the opportunity to cheer at St. Thomas More beginning in third grade. We have three cheerleading squads – third & fourth grade, fifth & sixth grade, and seventh & eighth grade. Tryouts are not required for any of the three squads. Cheerleaders participate in cheering for different STM sports teams. This varies depending on the grade-level squad. The third & fourth grade squad cheers at home and away football games. The fifth and sixth grade squad cheers at home and away football games. While both fifth and sixth graders cheer at the football games, only the sixth grade cheerleaders cheer at home CSAL girls and boys basketball games. The seventh and eighth grade squad cheers together at home and away football games as well as home CSAL girls and boys basketball games.
The 7th and 8th grade cheerleaders are considered to be the primary ammbassadors between these three squads. This squad participates in a variety of other events throughout the year such as: participating in summer cheer camp, particiapting in a Christmas or Mardi Gras parade and cheering on the school at assemblies (like Red Ribbon Week) and performing at pep rallies.
Cheerleading is a wonderful and fun way to get involved in school!
