Members of the performance squad cheer during football, basketball, and wrestling matches in uniform. They are able to stunt and tumble at events following the PASAC guidelines that have been set forth. This group practices about 2 to 3 times a week. In addition, they complete individual workouts and stunting clinics during the week. This group does take some level of commitment much like a sport and so they are looking for member that are willing to donate their time to achieving the high goals that they have set for themselves. Members are invited to join the performance squad through an open tryout, which evaluates talent/skill and a voting process done by the current performance squad members. Tryouts for this team will take place every August before the semester starts.
The Spirit Team works with the performance squad to bring pride and spirit at athletic events and campus activities. They can sit in the stands and yell back with the performance squad. They can help make signs, banners, etc. The spirit squad will participate and help plan activities and community services events for the LHU cheerleaders. We are also hoping that this year the spirit squad can work with the LHU club, the Eagles Nest to get more student attendance at all athletic events.
