Objectives of the Cheer Program:
- To promote the type of sportsmanship that will help students acquire the basic attributes of good citizenship.
- To develop wholesome school spirit.
- To develop loyalty to your school and team, regardless of the outcome of the contest.
- To promote a cooperative spirit among the student body, faculty, staff, administration, and citizens of Harrisburg.
Being a Part of the Cheer Team:
Being a part of the cheer team is very similar to being a part of other teams. It involves a lot of hard work during practices to perfect routines and skills as well as performances for games. There are also many costs involved with cheering that families need to be aware of.
- Time Commitment: Schedules will be distributed at least 2 weeks in advance in order to allow for work schedules to be made and so forth. Because of this, it is expected that all cheer team members will be present at each practice, game, or any other event.
- Practices: Practices will be held 3-5 times per week for about 1-2 hours per session. Practices are mandatory unless excused by the coach. Practices start in mid-August and run to the end of each season.
- Contests: Depending on your squad, you will have at least 1event per week, lasting from 2-4 hours per event, plus travel time and warm-ups before the game.
- Fundraisers/Other Events: We are a team. Therefore, it is expected that all cheer team members be present at fundraising and other cheer events.
- Conduct: Cheerleaders are required to follow the eligibility rules established by the South Dakota State High School League and the school district. The rules reflect criteria and consequences in academic achievement, use and possession of chemicals, violence, and a code of ethics. Cheerleaders and parents will be given forms to read and sign once the season begins.
