2015 UCA All-American


Shelby was recently selected at UCA Cheer Camp at Brant Lake as an All American Cheerleader! She had to try out in front of over 200 camp participants, performing a jump, cheer and dance. As an All American, she now has the opportunity to travel to London to participate in a week-long event including a special New Year's Day parade! Shelby has decided to raise funds towards this trip... which happens in December of 2015! She has to raise approximately $5,000 by mid-October... so please see Coach DeSarro if interested in donating towards this amazing opportunity!

We had 6 cheerleaders go through the tryout process this summer at camp - Aislinn, Cassidy, Samantha, Shelby, Karissa and Mya. The hard work they put in over the course of a 2-day period was something to be VERY proud of. Each of them did an outstanding job! The Norwich Cheerleading program is so proud of all six of our cheerleaders for representing our squad at camp - and we look forward to having Shelby not only represent our team, but our school and community in London as an All American Cheerleader!

American Spirit Award
 

The Varsity Cheerleaders at Norwich HS were given the Outstanding Achievement award by the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA). Annually, teams from across the country submit a binder to UCA which includes recommendations from school administrators and community members, write-ups and pictures of community service projects they have participated in, and explanations of how their team promotes spirit in both their schools and community. The award recognizes the top all-around programs in the country. When choosing a winner, UCA looks for teams that exemplify community service, outstanding athletic support, spirit raising activities, and high academic standards. The NHS Cheer Team placed in the top 15 schools across the country by receiving this award.

The Norwich HS Cheerleading team would like to thank Helen Gregory of the American Cancer Society, Victoria Mitchell of the Chenango Co. United Way, The Southern Tier Alzheimer’s Association, Mayor Joseph Mauriano, Coordinator of Athletic Events Joe Downey, and the honorable Howie Sullivan for writing such glowing recommendations.

 
Norwich Cheerleading Alumni

We are putting together a cheerleading alumni database and are looking for YOU!

If you cheered or coached at least one full season at Norwich High School - on JV or Varsity - we need your information! What will it be used for? We are looking to our alumni to continue the support of our long-standing program. At this time, we are talking about sending donation letters (every 5 years), newsletters to keep you updated, and will also notify you if we have an upcoming fundraiser! No worries - your information will not be passed out to others. And the updates will only be once a month, or right before an upcoming fundraiser. We may also try to put together an NHS Cheerleading Alumni get-together!
