Skills to work on over the summer:

*Flexibilty- practice your splits and stretching every day.* 

*Balance- especially flyers.  Strengthen your core (stomach) muscles! (Yoga is great for this!)*

*Conditioning- Endurance and stamina!  Running, sit ups and push ups are excellent conditioning exercises.  Upper body strength will improve your tumbling and stunting ability.  Add squats and build your strength.*

*Jumps- you should have excellent jumps and you can improve them by increasing your flexibility and endurance.*

*Dance and Cheer- sharp and precise movement are key to excellent cheering. You can practice any cheer routine to improve on these skills, including routines found online.*

**Be proud of your team! Your attitude affects your cheerleading ability.**

*Do your best at every practice (starting in September).

Practices are the core of this team and you will spend a lot of time preparing for 2 minutes and 30 seconds of competition.*
