Are you interested in trying out for cheer at your jr high school? Ogden High School is offering a pre-tryout clinic to prepare you for tryouts at your school! You will get feedback from our coaches on what to work on and improve before clinics!
We have an awesome opportunity coming up for boys and girls in grades 6th-9th grade to come to a cheer camp sponsored by the Ogden High Spirit Squad. You may register as a team or as an individual. Check it out and register online!
Mark your calendars! If you're interested in trying out for cheer, pom, or stunt you will need to attend the tryout information meeting with a parent or guardian on March 19th at 6:30pm in the Ogden High Lecture Hall. We will be discussing everything you need to know about being a part of the spirit squad and answer any questions! In the meantime the 2020-2021 Tryout Information is currently available on our website. We do look at 3rd term GPA and attendance so make sure to get acquainted with the expectations of making the team!

The Ogden High Spirit Squad is composed of the Ogden High cheer teams, pom team, stunt team, and mascots. Anyone interested in being a part of any of these should speak with Coach Kristie in room 8 of Ogden High School or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is a a brief description of each team and the time commitments for each.
Cheer- Ogden High Cheer is the only competitive and game day cheerleading program at Ogden High School. It is a year round commitment. We have mandatory summer practices as well as summer camp. We practice around 12 hours a week, cheer at home and away football games, home and away boys and girls basketball games, perform at pep rally's and assemblies, performances and appearances at community events, as well as compete at local and national competitions. Our routines focus on motions, jumps, tumbling, and stunting,
Pom- Pom is a newer addition to our spirit squad. Pom is similar to that of a college dance team. They will cheer at games and perform band dances but their routines focus more on turns, leaps, and dance technique. Pom will cheer at all home football games, specific basketball games, perform at pep rally's and assemblies, performances and appearances at community events, as well as compete at local competitions. Pom is not UHSAA regulated therefore dancers are welcome to still participate in studio dance as long as the schedule does not conflict. They will perform hip hop, pom, and other dance routines.
STUNT- Stunt is a competition ONLY team. They do not cheer at any games. They are required to be at certain home basketball games to stunt during timeouts and breaks. Stunt members learn elite level stunting and tumbling. Stunt members do not practice over the summer but are expected to attend weekly open gyms at the school. Stunt members attend camp with the cheerleading team and compete with them at local and national competitions.
Mascots- Mascots are essential in promoting school spirit in the school and around the community, There are typically 2-3 mascots who split the duties of attending games, school events, community events, and potentially competing with the cheerleading team at nationals!
The Ogden High Spirit Squad primary objective is raising spirit at the school and in the community. They are expected to maintain a high standard in academics, attendance, and perception.
Exciting news tiger fans!! This year we will be having a FALL TRYOUT! If you are a new student, a transfer, or maybe you just missed tryouts, you will have the opportunity to tryout for one of our awesome teams! We will be having a fall tryout for our JV and Freshman team this September!
We will also be introducing our new POM/ Songleading Team! We will have tryouts during the same time as well! So, whats a pom team? Our song/pom team is a BRAND NEW extension of our already amazing Ogden High Cheerleading Program. The song/pom team will perform hip hop, jazz, and pom routines at halftimes, assemblies, and pep rallys. We will eventually turn our pom team into a sideline pom team that also competes! If studio dance is more your style this is going to be an amazing fit for you! Its the perfect in between of cheer and drill!
We will also be having another tryout for our STUNT team. Our stunt team is made up primarily male members but can have females too! This is for people who are interested in just the competitive part of cheerleading. We focus on stunting and tumbling and getting ready to compete on the national stage! Sign up under "Tryout Info" on our website!
