Thank you for your interest in Maine West Cheerleading. Cheerleading at Maine West is a serious commitment and is not to be taken lightly. Please start conditioning and working on tumbling now; it will be very important for tryouts. If you have questions, please make sure that you ask prior to or on the first day of tryouts.
