Kitty Cougar Camp
Submitted by: Stephanie Uibel
The CHS Cougar Cheerleading Team teaches a kids camp called “Kitty & Jr Cougar Camp” for kids age 5-13 every 4th week of November. The kids who attend the camp learn cheerleading techniques & routines taught by the current cheerleading team and coaching staff. Then, they get to cheer & perform at a game during the Cougar Alumni tournament. This is a fundraiser for the team, but, also a great opportunity for the high school athletes to serve in the community & learn to share their talents.
This year the team consists of 9 girls from grades 9-12, and we had 19 kids attend the camp. With it being an alumni weekend, the team’s coach invited alumni cheerleaders to join the current team in performing their part of the half-time routine. Six alumni cheerleaders came for just a few hours prior to the Friday night performance to learn the routine & practice their stunts. They came from their University lives in Alberta & Idaho. They were feeling a bit old, but pulled off a nearly flawless performance.
The team’s coaching staff hopes to continue the alumni & kids camp tradition to inspire self-esteem, good sportsmanship, and the long-term good health of their athletes.
