TEAM – CHEERLEADING AND COMPETITIVE SPIRIT
Marcia Schell, Head Coach
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.

This team uses Team App for team related activities. Parents and players may sign up for Team App for more information related to the team including team calendars, rules, announcements, communications and team documents.
The main 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.
The Cheerleading Team holds several special events each year including the Little Champs Cheer Camp, Pep Rally in the Valley and Alumni Cheerleader Night. Additional information will be posted to this area once details are available for the coming year.
