Winter 2021 Spirit Program Tryout Information

Becoming a member of the Waukesha South Spirit Program is where all the fun begins! You will have an opportunity to perform at games, pep rallies, competitions, and many other exciting events! All of our teams within the spirit program are co-ed programs and welcome ALL Waukesha South students who are interested in cheerleading or dance. 

Cheerleading and Dance are demanding sports. The winter season begins in November and does not end until March, with practices, competitions and games throughout each week.
