Being an Ada High cheerleader is not as easy as the girls on the squad make it look. Cheering takes hours upon hours of work in the gym, after school, at home and on the sidelines. When it comes to the sport of cheer, the girls on the Ada squad take it all very seriously.

The squad spends their practice divided between stunting, stretching, jumping and working on sideline cheers and dances. As of October, they have also begun preparing for the NCA Nationals competition.

In addition to their work for the school, the Ada cheerleaders can also be seen out and about interacting with the community. Every year the cheerleaders host events such as an annual cheer clinic and participate in local parades as a way to engage with community members. The girls have been focusing hard on gaining the town’s support as they prepare for nationals.

Senior Week is always one of the busiest weeks in the cheerleaders’ already jam-packed schedules. Between dressing up for theme days, preparing for Two-Bits  (the pregame cheer tradition), and getting ready for the game, they also have to prepare for a senior pep assembly and other senior activities.

Watch the video below for a quick look into  an Ada High cheerleader’s typical Friday:
