This was going to be my last year coaching a cheer leading group, and we wanted to make sure I went out on a high note. It was almost twenty years ago that I started. I moved here from a small town further out in the state, and got the job, because there was no one else that wanted it.
Coaching cheerleaders wasn’t something that interested the other phys. ed. instructors. We were left to do whatever we wanted, and we tried to make the most of it year after year. It wasn’t until one of my students made an odd recommendation several years ago, for their outfits, that things really picked up, and we developed a reputation.
Fall Doesn’t Mean There Can’t Be Energy On The Court
Cheer leading hair bows were going to be our focus moving into the Fall. It had always worked for us in the past, and I was sure it would again. There was something about the hair bow that had become iconic to our squad. It always gave us the upper hand, and boosted the girl’s confidence and ability.
I remember back when we won that first championship… it felt like we actually got the recognition we had been working so hard for. The girls were thrilled and yet humble all at once. We didn’t rest on our laurels. I’m sure it would be the same this time around. The girls knew how much this last year meant to me.
Heading into the Fall, we want to switch things up, and go with a new look to match the chilly season. The city could use a boost, and who better to give it to them than the best cheerleader squad this place has ever seen? The seasonal bows are going to show that we stand with the rest of the city as it transitions, and we also represent our home. Instead of just going with all flash with little substance, the Fall bows will show a different, insightful and thoughtful side to the team. They’re going to look amazing… I can just feel it.
Showcase Your Cheerleaders With Warm Fall Colors
My girls are going to step up their game, and so will I. I want this to be the best year of my career, and I want the girls to know I’m so grateful for all they’ve given me. Year after year, group after group, we’ve been putting in hard work and doing our best, when no one noticed or cared about us. Now that we’re an institution, we’ve got to work hard to keep that respect everyone shows us. And we’re going to do it while looking good- better than the group has ever looked before, all thanks to Fall sports bows.
