    2021-2022 Viking Cheer and Dance

    The Cheer and Dance squads help to promote school spirit during the boys basketball season as well as demonstrate their athletic and dance talents.  The cheerleaders attend and cheer at all FVC games and tournaments.  The Dance team performs at all home games and tournaments.  The cheer team is divided into the 7th and 8th grade squads.  The Dance team is made up of both 7th and 8th grade girls.  We have three coaches working with the squads to help the girls become confident working in front of a crowd and develop team skills. 

    Cheer and Dance is open to 7th and 8th grade girls.  **Clinic and tryouts will be held at the end of August.**  Cheer and Dance practice will begin in October and meet daily. Each team member is expected to attend all practices and games.  Practices will be held every day after school and on some Saturdays.  Squad members will receive a practice schedule to help you plan accordingly. Both Cheer and Dance will participate in a Fox Valley Conference Exhibition event. The season ends at the conclusion of the 8th grade boys basketball tournament.

    Each squad member will receive a uniform (skirt and shell) which will be turned in at the end of the season. Squad members are responsible for their uniform.  All uniforms and shoes must be neat and presentable for each game. In addition, each member will be responsible for purchasing as a group: socks, bows and spankies from a selected supplier. It is important that all girls are wearing the same uniform and accessories. Accessories generally run around $70, in addition to the $75 athletic fee.
