Cheer team is a year-round program open to all 6th–8th graders.
Practice is typically once a week, any additional practices or workshops will be announced in advance. At this time, practice for the 21/22 Cheer Team will be on Wednesdays in the Armour gym or outside, weather permitting. No experience necessary, but commitment to the team, events, and regular attendance is required.
To join the team, students should attend at least one practice in September (15th, 22nd, 29th). Starting in October, any student not attending regularly/weekly will be cut from the team. All students must have the required Athletic forms submitted.
*A deadline for forms will be communicated with students, but they will not be able to participate in any Cheer events without these forms.
Parents, interested in getting involved?
Contact Jessica Wallace through the contact form at right. We would love help teaching new cheers, cheer skills, basic stunts, routines, team-building activities, confidence-building exercises, etc. Time commitment is very flexible. Contributing to even one practice or workshop can go a long way in building a great team!
Our goal is to provide encouragement and support for the Académie Lafayette sports teams and community. Most importantly, we want to have fun, have a positive attitude, and promote school spirit.
Our mission for our team members is to develop confidence, learn new skills through an introduction to cheer, and promote teamwork and pride in our community.
