The GCC Cheerleading Program
Building School Spirit...
City College Cheerleading Squad cheers for all home football and
basketball games and occasional away games. We do numerous things to
promote school spirit, such as hanging posters and advertisements for
athletic events, getting to know the players and coaches, and cheering
at the games. We also decorate the locker rooms before each home game
with signs, streamers, and balloons, and we also buy each player a small
bag of candy. It's our way of showing how much we
support them and are rooting for them. For away games, we send out
"mailings", which are little good luck mail stuffers just to send each
player a little word of encouragement.
The cheerleading squad practices about two times per week, for approximately an hour and a half at each practice. If there is a need for more practice time, extra time is scheduled. We have a blast at both the practices and the games, and we all work so well together! We have all become such wonderful friends, and it has makes the seasons a lot more fun. The fans and the teams make our job easy, and we love cheering with them!
Making the Squad
In order to become a member of the GCC Cheerleading Squad, you must attend a tryout. They are held in early spring for the next school year. The tryout consists of the following:
The squad ranges from 10-12 members, depending on interest and talent. Freshmen are unable to tryout before they are students at GCC, but if there is an open spot for the winter basketball season, freshman are invited to tryout. So if you have experience in cheerleading, keep your eyes open for announcements about tryouts! It is a wonderful opportunity and is tons of fun! If you have any further questions, please let us know.
