SJMSAA Cheers offers a fall and spring season for rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade middle school residents. Cheer teams participate in sideline cheer events as well as competitions. Cheer team registration will open January 20th, with tryouts occurring in April/May. Practices and events vary per team and there is a Cheer camp held in Spring or Summer.
