Students in pre-kindergarten through middle school are invited to learn football cheers, chants, jumps and a dance from Beaufort High cheerleaders during the Fall Football Cheer Clinic scheduled for Sept. 19th at Beaufort High – and attendees will then be invited to perform as the halftime show at the next Eagles home game.
The clinic, held at the high school gym from 9 a.m. to noon, costs $35 for pre-registration and $40 at the door. The clinic includes instruction, a cheer clinic T-shirt, group photo and refreshments. Siblings are admitted for $30.
Clinic participants will be invited to perform during halftime of the Beaufort High boys’ varsity football game Sept. 25 and admission to the game is free for cheer clinic students. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged for the Sept. 19 clinic. The BHS Eagles cheer squad won the Lower State Championship in competitive cheer last school year.
“Our cheer clinics provide a great opportunity for the younger students to mix with our Beaufort High cheerleaders, learn new cheers and chants, and hopefully plant seeds for our future cheerleaders,” said BHS Varsity Cheer Coach Corrie Zimmerman.
“While the middle school cheerleaders already know the basics, we also use the cheer clinics to scout for our future Beaufort High cheerleaders,” Zimmerman said. “When we see a middle school cheerleader who is enthusiastic, helping others learn and having fun, that is something we remember when we hold our own try-outs each spring.”
Before, after and during breaks in the clinic, beads, pompoms, hair ribbons and other accessories will be sold. Individual photo buttons are made and sold upon request. Check-in for the clinic starts at 8:30 a.m. in the Beaufort High main gym. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged because there is limited space. Walk-ins will be accepted the day of the event on a space-available basis.
Pre-registration forms with payment must be received by Sept 14. Forms received after this date will be considered walk-in registration. Forms may be turned in to a BHS cheerleader or mailed to Laura Eggers, P.O. Box 445, Beaufort, SC 29901. Forms may also be dropped off at the BHS office in care of Coach Corrie Zimmerman. Checks should be payable to “Big Green Booster Club” with “Cheer Clinic” in the memo.
Cheer clinic forms are available at http://beaufortathletics.olinesports.com and at the front-door office at Beaufort High. Please contact Laura Eggers with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
