Harding Academy cheer is available for all girls entering SK–grade 12. We have a peewee squad (SK–grade 2), lower school squad (grades 3–5), middle school squad (grades 5–8), varsity squads (grades 9–12). The peewee and lower school squads cheer for our football teams. These girls also join our varsity cheerleaders at Back to School Bash, One Family Night at the varsity football game, and the Pink Out varsity football game. They are coached by the varsity cheerleaders who lead them in cheers at games; this partnership allows our girls the unique opportunity to develop relationships that span our entire program.
At the varsity level, the football squad cheers during the fall, and the basketball squad cheers through the winter. These options allow girls involved in other sports or activities the opportunity to be cheerleaders for their student body. They are coached by Maggie Jamerson, Sheronda Holmes and Bria Loft.
The purpose of the Harding Academy cheerleaders is to create a cooperative spirit in the school and community, to promote good sportsmanship, and to encourage school spirit. We also want our cheerleaders to develop into responsible, honest, and hard-working teammates, athletes, and young Christian women. Most importantly, Harding Academy cheerleaders are expected to demonstrate high standards of conduct at all times, and glorify the Lord in all their efforts.
