The ded­i­cated Rock­mart High School girl’s cheer­lead­ing team is off to a great start with their sum­mer prac­tices and an­nual fundraiser.

Although head coach Jean Marie Tib­bitts does not sched­ule manda­tory prac­tices dur­ing the sum­mer, her cheer­lead­ers are ea­ger to attend and learn their com­pe­ti­tion rou­tine.

On June 5, their first day of prac­tice, all mem­bers of the girl’s var­sity cheer­lead­ing team were present.

“This group of girls is pretty hard work­ing,” Tib­bitts said.

With such a com­pet­i­tive sched­ule of op­po­nents, the team knows they must work hard to earn a spot com­pet­ing on the floor at the state com­pe­ti­tion. “Our 2AA re­gion is hard. The peo­ple in our re­gion usu­ally al­ways make the top ten at state,” Tib­bitts said.

Tib­bitts rec­og­nizes Ar­muchee, Coosa and Pep­perell as Rock­mart’s main com­pe­ti­tion for the 2018 sea­son.

Along with the hard work and prepa­ra­tion put to­wards their sea­son, the cheer­lead­ers par­tic­i­pate in sev­eral fundrais­ers to cover uni­form and com­pe­ti­tion costs.

One of their an­nual fundrais­ers is the Loud & Proud Cheer Camp for girls ages 3 through 5th grade.

The three-day camp will be held July 9 through July 11 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Rock­mart High School gym.

Each day, the var­sity cheer­lead­ers will teach cheers and skills to be shown off by campers in a per­for­mance on July 11 at 12 noon.

The cost is $40 per child and $20 for each additional sib­ling; a camp t-shirt is in­cluded.

Reg­is­tra­tion will take place in the Rock­mart High School gym each Thurs­day in June from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. af­ter it be­gan on June 8.
