Goal
The goal of CSA Cheer is to provide area youth the opportunity to participate in the recreational sport of cheerleading within a fun, safe, and positive atmosphere. Athletes in K through 8th grades will learn foundational cheerleading skills from qualified student coaches (Clarksburg High School Cheerleaders). Athletes will be instructed in Clarksburg High School Cheer motions, jumps, and stunt techniques, with safety as the main focus.
