How to Start Your Own Kids Spirit Group at the Games!
While at Cedar Park, and now at Rouse High School, I have been a part of starting a kids spirit group for the football team.
The spirit group is a group of kids that are Elementary Ages. They gather before each Home football game and form a line for the players to walk through on their way through the football tunnel. Then once the band starts playing and the player run out onto the field, the cheerleaders follow the players and then the Kids Spirit Group comes out of the tunnell and runs across the field into the stands!
Your group can be called a number of different things. Try to come up with something that is age appropriate. At Cedar Park, we were called the Pack Pups and at Rouse, they are called the Raider Rousers.
There are a lot of High Schools in Texas that have this tradition. If your school doesn't have it, ask if you can start it! I have all of my fliers and forms and will be more than happy to email them to you so that you can use them as a guide for starting your own! It is easy and it is a great way to get involved with the community and its also a great way to promote your school!
