The Junior Varsity and Varsity Cheerleaders of my school are AMAZING Athletes! They come for a wide variety of family, socio-economic & educational backgrounds and work together with their teammates to create a culture of school pride, respect and community for ALL students.
These students work physically hard to achieve stunts, tumbling and tricks that are physically and technically challenging each and every practice.
The cheerleaders show up for additional conditioning, practices, fundraisers and events because they love our school and love what they do!
For many of our students, our cheerleading program is the only thing that offers them an environment of accountability, safety & team-work; things they may not experience elsewhere!
Providing our cheerleaders with safety mats to use on our hard surfaces (in our gym and around campus) will enable our amazing athletes to continue to perform & practice their stunting, tumbling & jumps in a safe place.
Helping to limit the number of injuries is a key goal of cheerleading all over the U.S.
and utilizing proper safety equipment (like mats) is the very start of this movement.
Our sport is one that pushes young men & women to be the best version of themselves both physically & mentally and these mats will enable our cheerleaders to continue this quest.
Please help us continue to build up a Cheerleading Program that is SAFE, FUN & ATHLETIC.
