To be on the Northwest cheer team, you must be a 7th or 8th grader. Cheerleaders must keep a C or above average in every class in order to be eligible to cheer. Cheerleaders should be enthusiastic and have school spirit. Each candidate has to pass a school physical with a professional doctor because cheer is a sport, and you must be in good condition. Most importantly, you must have good character because you’re a leader representing Northwest! If you have any questions concerning cheer, please email Mrs. Hood or see her in Room 33.
