Lighthouse Christian cheer

The purpose of the LCA cheerleaders is to bring glory to God in all that we do and to offer student-athletes the opportunity to grow in cheer skills and leadership while promoting encouragement and spirit to the athletic team. This is done by helping each individual perform to the best of their ability to contribute to the overall team. The focus at every level is on teaching proper technique, executing clean cheerleading moves, and building team spirit. All coaching is age-appropriate and progresses at each level, according to their ability to safely and cleanly perform the skill taught.
