We are proud to be a state champion in cheerleading and are committed to maintaining the high standards that have earned us that distinction.
Our cheerleading program is led by experienced coaches who are dedicated to helping our athletes develop the skills and techniques necessary to perform at the highest level. We emphasize teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership, instilling these values in our athletes from day one.
Our cheerleaders are well-known for their precision, athleticism, and enthusiastic spirit. Whether they are leading the crowd in cheers, performing intricate stunts, or executing flawless routines, our cheerleaders are always at the top of their game.
Cheerleading is a fall and winter sport. Fall cheerleaders cheer for football and compete in SCISA cheerleading competitions throughout the season. The season begins in July and runs until late October. Football cheer attends the UCA cheer camp over the summer to prepare for the season. Football Cheerleading is offered to Middle School and High School students. Tryouts are at the end of the school year.
In the winter season, cheerleaders cheer for both girls and boys basketball. The winter season runs from November to mid-February. Basketball cheerleading has two teams: the lower school pep squad (grades 3-4) and the MS/HS team.
In order to promote school spirit and provide support to our teams, the stingray cheerleaders perform sideline chants, stunts, band dances, and a half-time dance routine. This program, like all athletic programs at Cross Schools, encourages teamwork, discipline, and physical fitness. The Stingray cheerleaders charity is Saint Jude Children's Hospital.
