As a member of the Cheerleading Squad, girls learn basic cheers, sidelines for basketball games, halftime routines, and stunt techniques. They cheer on our 7th and 8th grade basketball teams (girls and boys teams) and also perform at rallies, occasional assemblies and other school wide events. The practice schedule is subject to change due to coaching availability and facility space, however, most practices are held on Wednesday’s and Friday’s. During the basketball seasons, most basketball games are held on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.
Our cheerleading team also competes in 2 regional competitions in Northern California. If HPMS qualifies at a regional competition for UCA’s West Coast Championships, they have the option to raise the necessary funds to attend this competition in Anaheim, California. This final competition is typically held the second weekend of February.
Due to the competitive nature of our cheerleading program, it is often extremely difficult, if not impossible, to participate on our competitive cheerleading team and participate competitively in other sports, such as soccer, basketball, dance, etc. Please keep this in mind and attend the parent information meeting that occurs before the start of tryouts each spring to learn more.
If you have any questions about the Harvest Park Cheerleading Team, please contact our Cheer Advisor, Kyra Lewis-Pervere at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Athletic Community Service
Keeping in line with the Pleasanton Unified School District’s new Mission and Vision statements:
Our students will make a better world
Every student will be a resourceful, resilient, responsible and engaged world citizen.
This year, all HP student athletes are being asked to contribute a minimum of 2 hours of service back to their school or community. As a team, there are many ways teams will be able to contribute or give back to the community or to the improvement of our campus. Ideas should be discussed by the team and coach, then approved by the Athletic Director, Jack Parsons.
