Additional Information

  • Athletes interested in being part of the Varsity Competition Squad should plan to be available for Cheer Camp at Chestnut Lake and Choreography in August. These activities are crucial to the success of the team's season and a full squad attendance is invaluable.

  • We utilize the app, Band, to communicate with parents and athletes. It is a free app and has many features that benefit athlete-parent-coach communication. It helps keep all of the Butler Cheer information you'll ever need to know with you on the go! 

FAQ

Q: What kind of tumbling do I need to make game squad?

A: We recommend a solid standing backhandspring and round-off backhandspring. Additional skills are a plus!

 

Q: What will I be scored on?

A: Female athletes will be scored on cheer, dance, jump, tumbling (standing & running), and overall impression. Male athletes will be scored on their cheer, submitted stunt videos (if available), tumbling, and overall impression. Tumbling is not required for males.

Q: I am a male and have never cheered before but am interested. What do I need to do?

A: We are so excited that you are thinking about being a part of our program! Cheerleading is a great opportunity for males to showcase their athletic ability and strength. Trust the process and be willing to put in the work and you will be successful!
