We are so excited to start the 2014-2015 DHS Cheer Year! We have added new requirements for both squads. To be eligible for the JV squad, you must have standing back handspring with a light spot. For the Varsity squad, you must have a timer back handspring (no spot). If you do not currently have those skills, feel free to come to the first day to see what other skills you can work on to improve for future years in Cheerleading.
