Thank you for your interest in the Traditional Competitive Cheer Program at Campolindo High School.
Traditional Competitive Cheer is a "year round" sport meaning it does not have a defined season of sport, we begin our season with try-outs in the late spring/early summer and continue with practices and camp throughout the summer, practices continue through the fall season and regional competitions begin. The season concludes with the National competition held in mid-February.
CHS Competition Cheer is proud to be one of the newest sports at Campolindo, with traditional competitive cheer only becoming a sanctioned CIF sport in 2018 the program itself is still in its early stages. In the past three years we have started building a strong foundation of exemplary performance and we are excited to continue our growth and program development again this year. It is our goal to become one of the top programs in the region.
Competitive cheerleading exemplifies the importance of athleticism and dedication in the sport of cheerleading. It gives the athletes an opportunity to experience the thrill of the win and the frustration of defeat. It teaches them about goal setting, hard work, and unwavering commitment, dedication to their team and their sport. It allows them to experience an overwhelming sense of accomplishment when they realize they have just hit a perfect routine and can walk off the mat with that first place trophy. The confidence and sense of accomplishment and personal growth that the athletes gain from participating on our competitive cheerleading team is unparalleled.
That being said, competitive cheerleading IS, by its very nature, very competitive and therefore requires a 100% commitment from all athletes and their families for the team to be successful. It requires an intense family commitment, a powerful athletic will, and deep internal desire to succeed.
Successful competition team candidates are ready and willing to put their team before themselves and must be driven to give their perfect effort at all times. While not for the faint of heart, most of our athletes would identify their experiences on our competition team as absolutely life changing and most parents would say that the positive growth they see in their child through the competition program is unrivaled.
Please email Coach Erin for more information.
