CHEERLEADING AT HOLY CROSS
Being a member of any athletic team can be a valuable learning experience. It teaches responsibility, dedication, teamwork, and allows athletes to have fun while sharing common interests. At Holy Cross, the cheerleaders are dedicated and hard workers. At the college level cheerleaders are expected to have a strong fundamental cheer background to include sharp motion technique, dance, crowd appeal and good jump technique and tumbling. Safety is the number one priority and cheerleaders must adhere to the safety guidelines set forth by AACCA. The head coach will continually evaluate the readiness of each team member to participate, encourage a competitive spirit in the athlete, and to provide the opportunity for continued growth of the individual cheerleader. All team members must be willing to work together to achieve goals and must recognize that what they do (or do not do) affects the entire team. Student-athletes are expected to deal with conflicts in a mature manner. They must maintain discipline with regards to their academics, attendance and dedication in order to be successful. Team members must promote and uphold the positive image of the College of Holy Cross when at home or away.
