Cheer: familiarity with cheer arm motions, can stay on the beat, be able to learn and pick up cheers quickly, have confidence in your movements
Q: What's the time commitment?
A: Starting the first week of fall semester, we have 2 land practices per week and 1 ice practice. Once all of the cheers are learned, practices go down to one per week at Amsoil Arena. We also arrive at the arena for game days as early as 3PM and stay until the game is done. Our season runs from early October to March.
