Cheerleading

Philosophy
The St. Leo’s Cheer program offers a positive learning experience for all skill levels and
is available to girls grades 4-8. The girls are expected to have exemplary conduct in and
out of school; they represent the best of St. Leo’s at all times. Mutual respect for coaches
and teammates is expected. This includes any internet and online access/interaction.
