Tryout Info Meeting February 19th RV Library 7pm
RV Cheer Philosophy
The main focus of the Ralston Valley High School Spirit Squads is to support athletics and the RVHS student body. We also, secondarily, participate in competition. The actual time spent at an athletic event is a very small amount compared to your overall commitment if you are chosen to be a member of the cheerleading or pom squad at RVHS. Your actions, reactions, manner, conduct, and judgment should all positively reflect pride in your school, yourself, and your squad. People will judge the squads by what you do or don’t do in the hall and classrooms of RVHS. It’s our goal to have spirit squads that reflect the very best of Ralston Valley High School. Our commitment in upholding the policies of this team is a vital part of our success.
