Overview

At Baylor, varsity cheerleaders are boys and girls in the Upper School (grades 9-12).
A student can try out for the squad at the end of their eighth grade year.

BAYLOR'S 2017-18 CHEER SQUAD (ABOVE) WAS RUNNER-UP AT THE TENNESSEE EXTREME REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND RUNNER-UP AT THE TSSAA CHEERLEADING COMPETITION, EARNING A BID TO THE NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADING CHAMPIONSHIP AT THE ESPN SPORTS CENTER, WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT.


Cheerleading is fun, but it also requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Baylor cheerleaders attend camps each summer along with hours of practice before and during each season. Here is a list of skills that cheerleaders are asked to work on:

Cheer (Motions, sharpness)
Dance – Girls only (Rhythm, technique)
Jumps (Toe Touch/ Jump of Choice – Height, form)
Tumbling (Skills, timing, technique)
Voice Projection (Loud, clear, natural)
Facial Expressions/ Smile/ Enthusiasm
Overall Appearance (Spirit, Ability)
Stunting (Lifts, Pyramids, Formations)

Baylor has squads for varsity football in the fall and varsity basketball in the winter.
There is no cheerleading in the spring term.

As cheerleaders, we are SPIRIT leaders in the school and we believe each team member makes a difference!

Be proud to support Baylor each day of the year!
