LHS consist of two cheerleading squads: Football and Basketball. We take pride in the cheer program at Lexington High School and expect athletes to adhere to the rules and philosophies laid out by the coaches. It is an honor and privilege to become a Tiger Cheerleader, and your role in the squad should not be taken lightly. You are expected to be a student athlete which means you should be an example in the classroom as well. As a squad, we do much more than cheer at games. We take part in community service, pep rallies, and we are also considered role models and representatives of our school. Please consider the commitment and sacrifices that will be made to be a part of our family of cheerleaders.

LHS Cheerleaders cheer for all Varsity Football and Basketball (both Lady Tigers and Tigers) games. We lead our school in spirit at pep rallies and/or other school events. Cheerleaders are expected to participate in Homecoming activities and dress up days for BOTH homecomings no matter the squad you are on. We perform community service and fundraising projects with citizens of Lexington and Henderson County.
How and when do I sign up, tryout, join?
Tryouts will be held in the spring, early April. Look for more information on social media for tryouts. Attendance is mandatory at all clinic dates. Please speak with a coach if an extenuating circumstance prevents you from being present. Cheerleading candidates will be judged by a panel made up of cheer coaches and/or outside judge(s).
There will be an informational interest meeting late March in the LHS Auditorium. It is highly suggested that both returning and prospective cheerleaders and a parent/guardian attend this meeting. We will be going through the packet in detail, as well as, outline expectations/changes from last year.
Football Cheerleading is open to candidates of rising freshmen to seniors. Volleyball and Girl Soccer members cannot participate in Football Cheer due to the overlap of seasons.
Basketball Cheerleading is open to candidates of rising freshmen to seniors. There are no exemptions to this squad since basketball is a winter sport.
How much does it cost?
The cost for cheerleading is estimated to be $1,200 to $1,500 for the first year and returning cheerleaders is $800-$1,000 each year after. Cheerleaders have mandatory fundraisers to help with the cost. The number of fundraisers and the profit are determined by the Coach/Sponsor. Each girl is responsible to pay for any remaining balances they have.
