2016-2017 is our third year with competitive cheerleading. Last year we competed in 2 competitions and placed 5th at the first and 2nd at the second. This year the squad will be joining the NYCMSBL Cheerleading League. There will be 5 competitions 1 a month. The first one is Sat. Dec 10th. The squad also performs during gymnasium week in June for the school.
Just a little about the program. Competitive cheerleading is a mix of cheer, dance, gymnastics and stunting. The girls learn how to advance their gymnastics skills in tumbling and learn techniques in stunting which involves lifting and throwing girls in the air. All their skills are put together into a 2:30 min routine which is performed at competitions.
