Cheering U of H & NFL Play 60

Yes, cheer season is over (it officially runs Aug-Nov) but when I took over running the program last year, I wanted us to do several events to get the girls together in the offseason and give them a chance to perform: 1) to boost retention, 2) to advertise the program, & 3) to make the girls feel special. Last year, we did the local Rodeo Parade. We're doing that, again, this February 20th, but that's not all!

The University of Houston cheer coach & I have kept in close contact since their cheer clinic we attended in Sept. She invited a few of our girls to come cheer a U of H men's basketball halftime to work out the logistics & see if we could offer this to our whole cheer league next season!!! It. Was. Awesome. We went last Wednesday. It was 4 of my girls and 5 of another Cheertator's squad along with U of H:

THEN, this Saturday, we were asked by the local parks district to cheer to open their NFL Play 60 event, which gets boys & girls moving & playing active games for an hour. We were the preshow entertainment, and boy did we deliver!!! I *did* get to open this up to the entire league, and we had 13 squads participate! We all did our Hello Cheer together:

And then each squad performed their own cheer or halftime dance, before we closed with everyone doing our Opening Ceremonies dance together.

The event coordinator was so pleased that she has asked us to cheer *EVERY* future NFL Play 60 event!!! This is HUGE: most organizations pay them $400 to perform like we did, & they're begging us back! PS - the weather?! STELLAR: 80° sunshine on January 30th! Loooooove...


  1. What neat experiences for your girls!!! Looks like fun!
