they are available. Cheering at football games is not optional and is a mandatory team commitment. We use this time to support our football teams and strengthen the skills our cheerleaders learn at practice.
 
**Teams compete at ICA competitions with the goal to earn a bid to the ICA State Championship. Athletes whose teams qualify are expected to participate**
