My 3rd-5th grade cheerleaders are amazing. They are student-athletes and leaders within our school. We represent the school at various community events. My students never cease to impress me with the mature, respectful way they conduct themselves. They work so hard as a team to prepare performances. They would be so grateful for new, matching cheer tennis shoes. Our school is 92% economically disadvantaged and 79% English Language Learners. Thank you in advance for making a difference for my students!
My cheerleading team is in need of new cheerleading shoes. I coach cheer to 15 girls through the after-school program. Currently, my students come to practice/performances in a variety of shoes, some not suitable for cheering, jumping, running, stunting, or tumbling, and we do it all!
I want to provide my well-deserving students with new cheer shoes for their safety and to promote team pride.
These shoes will help the cheerleaders improve their skills. A typical practice includes running outside, stunting/lifting each other up, tumbling (cartwheels, round-offs, etc.), practicing jumps, learning new cheers, and more. My students will be able to do more physical activity with proper shoes. They will also look like a uniformed team when performing at various school events, including pep rallies, parades, football, basketball, and soccer games, community service events, and more. They will be so grateful to receive these shoes. Thank you in advance!
