The goal of the Dartmouth cheer program is to promote school spirit by enhancing the relationship between our student body and the Dartmouth community through competing across the state and cheering on our fellow athletes. Now a little about our team: cheerleading at DMS is a year round sport! We hold tryouts in April and do not end the season until mid March. We practice 2-3 times a week, depending on the amount of material we need to cover. Along with cheering for our fellow athletes, we compete in regional competitions and at the USA Jr. Nationals competition in Anaheim. Cheerleading is as much mental as it is physical. It will not only place many demands on your body, but it will change your way of thinking too. You will be a part of a group that will strive to think and act as one. A team cannot succeed without all members present. Becoming a part of the DMS cheer team is a huge responsibility. We cannot stress enough how much time goes into being on this team.
