The PHSC cheerleading program boasts two national and two state championship titles. Our cheerleaders truly define the term student-athlete. Members of the coed team are highly visible throughout the year promoting school spirit at athletic events, campus programs and in the community. All cheerleaders are PHSC students and must have at least three credit hours to cheer. A 2.0 cumulative GPA is required to be on the team.
The season begins every year with tryouts in June. The team is required to practice and attend a camp during the summer. Cheerleaders are responsible for attending all practices and/or games that occur during that time period, including those that fall during College breaks/vacations and holidays. In general, the PHSC cheerleaders practice twice a week, with the frequency of practices increasing to at least five times per week, during competition season. In addition to evening practices all squad members are also required to attend study hall once a week.
Cheerleaders are ambassadors for the school and are expected to carry themselves accordingly at all times and volunteer for a variety of appearances throughout the season. Being a college cheerleader is an extremely rewarding experience, but is also quite time consuming. Cheerleaders must be dedicated and disciplined to participate. Please carefully consider whether your schedule allows for the time required to effectively practice for and perform in the cheerleading events, including cheer competitions. Cheerleaders are expected to focus on academics first and cheerleading second.
