Cheer Team

Cheer team is a year-round program open to all 6th–8th graders.


Practice is usually once or twice a week. Days will be decided and announced to the team. Current 5th, 6th, and 7th graders are invited to try out for each upcoming season. No experience necessary.

To join the team, students must participate in at least one pre-tryout session and one required tryout session. See the calendar below for dates and times for the upcoming season. All sessions will be held at the Oak Street gym. Get more information and learn the cheers for the tryouts and the pre-tryout/info sessions. Meet the current AL cheerleaders and ask questions about the program. Parents are welcome to attend as well.

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!
