BAINBRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL cheerleaders for fall 2012 are ready to help middle school girls sharpen their cheering skills at the Bearcat Cheer Clinic, to be held May 2-4 at Memorial Coliseum.

Fifth- through eighth-grade girls who enjoy cheerleading can get some help with learning new skills from the Bearcat cheerleaders themselves.

The Bainbridge High School varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders will host the first-ever Bearcat Cheer Clinic for fifth, sixth, seventh and eigth graders. The clinic will be held May 2 through May 4 at the Decatur County Memorial Coliseum.

The clinic will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on all three days, with a cheer exhibition to wrap things up at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 4.

The event, sponsored by the BHS Cheerleader Boosters, is a clinic only and is not mandatory for girls who wish to tryout for school cheerleading. Skills which will be taught include motions, jumps, techniques, entrance cheers, as well as basic stunting and gymnastics.

The cost of the clinic is $40 per person. T-shirts cost an extra $15. To register, download and print out a form and return it to Polka Dots Gift Shop in downtown Bainbridge.
