On Monday, January 24th a free competition cheerleading clinic was held at the CHS gym, in which three Hot Shots representatives brought equipment and worked with the kids. From 1:00-2:00 was designated for current 5th-7th graders that are interested in trying out for the 2011-2012 Chattooga Middle School Competition Cheerleading Squad (which will also be coached by high school cheer coach Liza Morgan.) For this group Hot Shots personnel worked with the kids on basic jumps, motions, round offs, and standing back-handsprings. From 2:00-3:00 was designated for current 8th-11th graders (both male and female) with an interest in high school competition cheerleading. There were many in attendance, including three males. For this group Hot Shots personnel worked with the athletes on elite jumps, advanced tumbling passes, and a wide variety of stunts ranging from partner stunts to basket tosses to co-ed style stunts.
Next year’s high school and middle school cheerleading seasons look very promising. High school tryouts have now been set for February 21st-25th. For additional information, contact Liza Morgan at Chattooga High School.
