GAME DAY CATEGORIES CRITERIA

SIDELINE

Display your very best using any “Defense”, “Offense” or “General” Sideline that raises fan spirit. We encourage you to keep the words short, simple and easy to follow yet impactful enough for a true game situation.

BAND DANCE/CHEER

Perform your traditional school band cheer that all of your fans have come to know at every game, pep rally and alumni gathering. It’s traditional, it’s fun and most of all it’s your very own school yell that never goes out of style!

CROWD LEADING CHEER

Showcase your crowd leading ability by executing a crowd oriented cheer/yell incorporating skills and props that are practical and best suited to lead your crowd in a given time-out situation. Go full out by incorporating poms, signs, megs, flags or anything else that effectively communicates and encourages crowd participation at its finest!

FIGHT SONG

Execute your traditional fight song to a recorded version provided by your band that showcases your outstanding motion technique, spirit and enthusiasm just like you do at any game!
