Cheerleading is a winter sport that will run from October until March.
The Rockets cheer squad will be competing in the unified sports division. This means that Special Olympic athletes will be competing with non-disabled peers (i.e., unified partners). Our cheer squad is co-ed. We will join with cheerleaders from local school districts and MSU to learn cheer and dance techniques!
Cheer sign ups will be 10/25 at Universal Athletics; 5:30 for new cheerleaders and Unified Partners, 6:00 for returning cheerleaders and Unified Partners.
LOCATION: 309 Solar Dr, Murray, KY 42071
We will have a Unified Team for athletes ages 8-25. And we are going to try to add an Adult Squad for athletes 26+.
We’ll post practice times here once they become available.
We’ll post competition dates times here once they become available.
The Murray/Calloway Co. Special Olympics delegation is looking for cheerleaders (age 8-25) to be a part of the Rockets Unified Cheer Squad. All cheerleaders and Unified Partners are encouraged to attend!!!
