Plato High School Cheerleading is a year-round sport made up of two squads of 9-20 members. There are strict guidelines to become and remain a cheerleader. Cheerleaders have many responsibilities at our school. Tryouts are held each spring for the following year. They work very hard to learn cheers that will be used to encourage the fall and winter sport teams. In the fall, PHS cheerleaders assist the Junior High cheerleaders and the pep club. In the winter, they cheer for Varsity, JV, and C (if applicable) boys’ and girls’ basketball games. Often cheering between one and four games per week, cheerleaders use their enthusiasm to lead their crowds in a positive manner.
