Winter Sports (November-February)
Middle School & Varsity Cheerleading
Our cheerleaders are coached by Mrs. Beckie Smith. Coach Smith is very passionate about her job and enjoys working with our girls. The cheerleaders are a great asset to our school, making our basketball season all the more exciting with high-flying basket tosses and cheers loud enough to raise the roof. They cheer for all home basketball games for our Varsity Girls’ basketball team. The JCA cheerleaders are well known for their great school spirit.

Our JV girls are coached by Mrs. Victoria Cominskie, a Hoosier from the state of Indiana and a graduate of Southeastern FWB College. Try-outs are in November. Our girls start as young sixth graders just learning about the game. By the time they reach eighth grade, they have a good grasp of the basics and are ready to move up to the varsity level.
