Pep Team

  • The Hoover Pep Team is made up of CheerDance and Pep Flags. All three teams practice in the Small gym starting at 7AM throughout the school year. We cheer at football, basketball, and water polo games as well as competing at several local and national competitions throughout Spring semester. The team is also expected to perform at numerous school and community events such as pep rallies, assemblies, back-to-school night, Relay for Life, etc.

    The Cheer team is divided into Varsity and Junior Varsity levels. In addition to cheering at games, the girls are also placed into stunt groups where each member has a designated spot in performing said stunts. No tumbling experience is required but is a plus. 
    The Dance team is a Varsity team and competes Pom, Jazz, Lyrical, and Hip-Hop. Previous experience in one of these styles is preferred upon try-outs.
    The Pep Flag team has both Varsity and JV teams and competes two routines throughout the season (One flag and two flag). Must be a fast learner and have high attention to detail but no previous experience in twirling is necessary.
    Auditions for the 2023-2024 teams will be held in Hoover's small gym April 2023: Mandatory prep clinics Tu-Th 4/18/23 - 4/20/23, 3:30-6:00pm. Auditions are Fri 4/21/23, 3:45-6:00pm.
