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!
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, coed & full group stunting, 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!
