Why Join Winter Cheer?

Are you looking for a new sport to try?

As fall sports come to an end, winter sports around the corner. Take a look at the winter cheer team and see what they really do.

The Alden cheerleaders have had a decline in the squad in the past couple of years, causing the team to be very small. Winter cheer tryouts start Nov. 14, and they need more people.

Alden cheerleading is so much more than just a team, Kyla Gustavel says.

“It’s an overall good experience,” said Gustavel, a senior now in her 13th year doing cheer. “It’s like a family. It’s hard but it’s fun in the end.”

“The Alden cheer team is not only a sport, but it is a family,” said sophomore Katelynn Retzlaff. “Outside of cheering at game, they do so much. It goes from team secret Santas to competition. It’s so much work but it’s very rewarding.”
