The award-winning Grinnell High School Cheer Squad will be hosting its annual Little Tiger Cheer Clinic on Saturday, September 14 for all students. We will be teaching cheers, jumps, and part of the school song in the afternoon. For middle schoolers only, we are offering an extra stunting clinic in the morning. Participants can come and learn how to safely execute cheerleading stunts. We will first learn safety and spotting techniques and then teach as many skills as we can, letting each cheerleader try out as many spots in the stunt as they want to try. Then everyone who participates will get to perform on the track before the varsity football game on September 20. More information is in the virtual backpack or you can follow this link to register: https://forms.gle/1nSCw89SZNBrMkwV6
Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org We hope you will join us!
