Hey Tigers! The Lakewood High School Cheer and Poms Spirit Squad is hosting tryouts for the JV Winter Season the week of October 11, 2021 in the wrestling gym. Cheering at this school is a great way to get involved, meet new people, learn about time management, and cultivate healthy friendships.

Sophomore Stella Meyer, who is currently on the JV squad says, “My favorite part of being on the squad is all of the amazing friends I’ve made, and all of the memories I’ve made with them.”

The JV squad cheers for JV boys and girls basketball, as well as participating in the Winterfest assembly and having the option to participate in the Spring Fling assembly.
Dia Sandoval is a junior at Lakewood and is currently on the varsity squad. She was on the JV winter season squad her freshman year in 2019, the first JV cheer squad that Lakewood had had since the 1990s. She explains, “Being on the JV squad completely changed the rest of my freshman year in a positive way. I was able to make a lot of new friends that were better for me mentally.” Dia describes her time being on the squad as a “really great experience”.

In the spring, students as upcoming sophomores, juniors, and seniors get the opportunity to try out for varsity. The varsity squad cheers for varsity sports including football, boys soccer, boys tennis, volleyball, cross country, softball, and more. For now, coaches Kellie Coates and Britney Anderson encourage all freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, regardless of gender or experience levels to come try out for JV.

Students who are interested should keep in mind that a physical is needed in order to try out.
