Vandal Spirit Squad FAQ
Teams practice twice a week for two hours at a time, with scheduled events and games. There is also a mandatory band class cheer and dance must take M|W|F. The class is usually around the lunch hour (this past season class time was 12:30 - 1:20 p.m). This class is dedicated to half time routines and offers a scholarship.
We have merit-based scholarships, band class scholarships, and select scholarships awarded throughout the school year. When considering who to award, the coach looks at skill level, attitude, GPA, leadership, and availability for extra events outside the regular schedule.

These can be earned in different ways; out of pocket payments, donations, calendar sales, and appearances.
