• If you enjoy performing and promoting school spirit, then cheerleading is for you! The team performs at football and basketball games, Homecoming pep rally, and community events, such as the Special Olympics and 4th of July Parade. We compete at 5-6 local high school cheerleading competitions each year, including the IHSA state series. Practices are held three days a week and we attend two competitive cheerleading camps in the summer. This team is open to all students (yes, we are co-ed!) and tryouts are held in the spring for incoming freshmen through seniors. No previous cheer experience is necessary. The cheerleading team is a great way for students to get involved at DHS!
