Middle School and High School Varsity Cheer - From cheer training camp in June, to the last tipoff of the basketball season in February, the CCS Cheer Squads demonstrate dedication, spirit and excellence. These energetic cheerleaders are committed to performing to their fullest potential both on and off the field and court. They practice daily to perfect their routines and do their best as they represent CCS Royal athletics. The Varsity Cheerleading Squad comprises young women dedicated to cheering for CCS varsity sports teams and increasing school spirit. Commitments include attending tumble classes, afternoon practices, and occasional weekend practices. CCS Varsity Cheerleaders are also responsible for organizing locker decorations, participating in pep rallies, and managing youth cheer clinics and fundraisers. Above all, a CCS cheerleader has a personal growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Cheer tryouts are held each year in the spring.
