  • Why we love cheerCoach Brooks: Choreography for sideline & competition due to my background in cheerleading, dance, and gymnasticsbut cheerleading also allows you to be a role model in your school & community! Coach BilekPositive attitudes & teamwork!Coach MarissaLOVES Cheer (has cheered for 19 years)but especially loves stunting!Coach JamieCheered in high school, All-Star, and collegebut loves the stunting, enthusiasm and excitement during competition, and the all-around athleticism!Coach MaryLOVES all things Cheerhas cheered in high school, All-Star, and college!

  • Coaching PhilosophyPutting in 110% to be the best we possibly can as a team, individual athletes, and coaches, knowing that we respected our sport by following the rules and proper safety precautions, respecting our teammates by working together and showing support for each other no matter what, and being the best possible representation of Oakton on the sideline, at competition, or at events is more important than any ranking or title we will ever achieve as a team.

  • Cheerleading PhilosophyBecause of the difficult and diverse skill sets now making up cheerleadingfrom jumps and motions, to tumbling and stunting it has evolved into a true sport. However, what makes it unique from any other sport is its founding place in the school of promoting school spirit by motivating players and fans at school, games, and within the community. Competition is a chance to share the growing athleticism of the sport while elevating the demonstration of school spirit outside of the sideline. But successful high school competition squads first earn their respect on the sideline. Being a cheerleader is an honor and special privilege at any school because you are first and foremost representatives of that school. Cheerleaders have a tough job because it isnt just about the athleticism, but rather exemplifying what it means to be a great student, athlete, and citizen at Oakton.

    Thats what makes Cheerleaders so special.
