This team is an excellent option for cheerleaders that are new to the sport or ones who cannot commit to every game and practice for the season. This team focuses on team building and beginner cheer knowledge. Basic stunting will be taught along with cheers and jumps. No experience is needed. This team is a fun way to introduce new-comers to the sport of cheerleading or for experienced cheerleaders to be able to cheer and be a part of a team without having to commit to every practice or game.

Cheerleaders interested in being a part of the Panther team must be willing to go the extra mile to commit to improving their skills. This team will have a high expectation of being an active member of the team, and be required to attend all practices and games. Cheerleaders electing to be on this team will be expected to come to practice with a positive attitude and work hard to improve cheer knowledge and commit to personal improvement. If your cheerleader is interested in trying out for their school cheer team, or is looking to advance their skills this may be an option to explore. Experience is not necessary to be a part of this team, just a strong work ethic and positive attitude!
