Head Coach: Marcia Schell

Cheerleading and Competitive Spirit is a varsity sport at Upper Dauphin Area.  Student-Athletes from Millersburg Area also participate as part of the Cooperative Sports Agreement. The  purpose of the Upper Dauphin Area Cheerleading Squad is to support the athletics program through quality cheerleading skills and genuine acts of school spirit. Advanced cheerleading skills are the goal of every squad in order to enliven the crowd, further school spirit, and cheer the teams to victory. When elite skills and exceptional teamwork is accomplished, squad(s) may compete to represent Upper Dauphin Area if permitted by the School District. It is the hope of the coaching staff that every season each cheerleader will find their own unique cheerleading success.  

Competitive Spirit Schedule

The Cheerleading Team holds several special events each year including the Little Champs Cheer Camp, Pep Rally in the Valley and Alumni Cheerleader Night. 

Pep Rally in the Valley 2023

The Pep Rally in the Valley is a chance for your team to shine and be able to showcase what you have been working on all year! This day is designed to be a huge Pep Rally for all surrounding area teams and fans. This is not a competition, but rather an event for the surrounding area schools and cheer teams to perform for their friends and families and participating schools.  Awards will be given based on best cheer, chant, dance, music, spirit, etc. and every team will receive an award!  Each team is asked to perform a cheer, chant and dance routine. There is something for everyone to be a part of, if it’s cheering your child on, entertainment for the whole family, food, shopping and the “Daddy Jump Off” contest!  The “Pep Rally in the Valley” will be held Saturday November 11th at the UDAHS Gymnasium.  Doors open at 8:00 am.  We look forward to seeing your team at the biggest Pep Rally in the Valley!
