Cheer Clinic Continues to Attract New Baby Buffs

It has been about three years since the Baby Buff Cheer Clinic began. So far, the clinic has been successful with all the Baby Buffs ready to learn with our cheer team. 

“We have a lot of girls join. We usually get around like 50. So, it’s a lot of work, but a lot of good that comes out of it. It’s a lot of fun, and laughs, and it’s just all really happy, and joyful, and we have a lot of fun. The kids, I love interacting with them. So they always make me smile, and it’s just a really good experience,” cheerleader Brenna Bleier (9) said. 

As this event goes on, the parents of the Baby Buffs have shown their endless support to everyone participating in the clinic. 

“My daughter loves gymnastics and she likes pretending like she is a cheerleader so I knew that she would have a lot of fun with learning from cheerleaders and just having a lot of fun with some other kids,” mother Nicole Eitzen says.

“Well, she was a little shy, and I told her that sometimes being shy can keep you from experiencing things that you’ll soon or later regret. I didn’t do many things. I really didn’t do anything. So I told her, ‘You know what! Don’t be like me. Just try it,’” mother Suzette Delatorre says.

The cheerleaders have shown their excitement as they encouraged the Baby Buffs to keep going, hoping that they will remember this experience in the future.

“They always have fun. They are always smiling, running around, I think that this is a good thing for them,” cheerleader Yelitza Cervantes (11) says.

“I think that it’ll stick in their minds like, ‘Oh yeah! I went to a cheer clinic there!’ like, ‘I feel a little more connected to that school.’ So yeah, I do think that it will help eventually in the future,” cheer coach Katie Hoover said. 

Both the cheer team and Baby Buffs have worked hard during the clinic. Look forward to the future of Southeast’s cheer team.
