                  Cheerleading

                  • Activity Fee: $50
                    • Uniform Deposit: $50
                      • Additional Fees: $500 (Apparel, Choreography, Camps, etc.)

                        SHJH offers two different opportunities for cheerleading: competitive and spirit cheerleaders.

                        Competitive Squad
                        Spirit Squads
                        Competition Coach: Lisa Strzykalski Spirit Coach: Amanda Baske
                        The competitive cheer squad is a mixture seventh and eighth grade students. This squad competes at the state level as well as other competitions. These cheerleaders must be available to compete on the weekends. There is one spirit squad that supports the boys' basketball players. They cheer at all home games.

                        A sports physical must by on file to participate in clinics and to try-out. Clinics and try-outs for both squads will be held from 5pm- 6:30pm for clinics and 3pm-8pm for try-outs in May, after students have finished their try out they may leave. It is strongly encouraged and beneficial for all girls to come to clinic days. Results (try-out numbers) will be posted on the Coaches teacher pages.

                        An informational parent/athlete packet will be posted on Coach Strzykalski's teacher page prior to clinics and try-outs. Once teams have been decided both parents and athletes must attend a mandatory meeting to find out about the schedules and expectations for both the spirit and competition squads. The cheerleaders will also host a cheerleading clinic for the participating K-4 Summit Hill School District students in the fall and have two fundraisers during the season.

                        Tryout Information

                        Any student trying out must wear a plain white t-shirt (no design or team emblems), black shorts and proper athletic shoes, have no jewelry on and have hair pulled back and out of the face for both clinic days and the day of try-outs. Stunt groups and dates for tryouts will be determined during the clinics.
