The YMCA Cheerleading program gives girls the opportunity
to cheer throughout the year. They meet once a week to practice
their cheers and work on their cheer techniques. The girls then
perform at local games and community events. The Y has two
performances planned at LCHS basketball games for the month of
January. The Y will also be starting up a Competitive
Cheerleading program for girls in sixth through 12th grade.
Contact the Y for more information. Register your daughter soon so
she may start in January and be part of this "cheertastic" fun.
