The Ardrossan Cheerleading squad motivates the fans and the teams to “make some noise”!
Ardrossan Jr./Sr. High School Cheer Team has been promoting school spirit since the 1960's. Although the membership and nature of the team has changed over the years, one thing remains the same: the cheer team supports the football team, school activities and are a very competitive team! While not at every football game, when they do perform, they unit the fans and get the crowd to make some noise!
The AHS Cheer Team is a program aimed at teaching and developing leadership and social skills in young athletes. The team values responsibility and cooperation among its members and aims to improve their self-
Today the AHS Cheer Team performs competitively using the skills developed on the football

"Ardrossan cheerleaders were true leaders at Cheerfest'06"
Recently we had the pleasure of hosting a cheerleading competition in Athabasca EPS Cheerfest 2006. We had 8 teams competing and 1 performing. I would like to congratulate the team from your community. Everyone present noticed the way your athletes handled themselves; the leadership that they displayed and how outgoing they were.
The coaching staff has to be commended, as it is the ability of the coaches that reflects through the team. The Ardrossan team is an exceptional team with huge potential.
Congratulations for your third place finish. It was a pleasure to have you in Athabasca. We look forward to seeing you again.

This year’s team will once again be a primarily competitive team but will also include some half-
Competition dates and times will also be posted here as soon as they are set.
Below are photos of the 2016 Bison Spirit Team which was a largely a competitive team. This team was expanded to include both Junior and Senior High School members as cheerleading is a growing sport. To be a great cheerleader requires focus, practise and a high degree of athleticism, strength and gymnastic ability….not to mention sheer bravery.
CONGRATULATIONS 2016 BISON CHEER TEAM
Last year, their focus on competition was highly successful,
placing third at the Provincial Cheerleading Competitions”!!
Congratulations girls on your third place finish. We know it took many hours of practise and more than a few bumps and bruises to get there and your
never quit attitude.

“A cheerleader is not measured by the
height of her jumps but by the
SPAN OF HER SPIRIT”
Cheerleaders always have to ensure that they know how they are bringing a stunt down. The most commonly used method is called a cradle. From a prep, the bases push the top into the air and catch her in a v-
As with any sport, cheerleading is governed by a provincial sporting body. The Alberta Cheerleading Association (ACA) makes rules about stunts to help ensure athlete safety. All teams though, share one specific rule when it comes to stunting. Your top never hits the ground, whether she is coming down in a perfect cradle, or is falling out of a new stunt. This rule, as well as a lot of practice helps teams form a close bond of trust in the gym that is never broken.

While the sport of cheerleading is made up of several different components, including cheers, chants and dance, by far the most exciting is stunting.
Stunting is what you see when one cheerleader is standing on top of another, or when someone is thrown in the air. The possibilities for stunts are endless and constantly changing as teams try to come up with new and innovative ways to wow their crowds. Stunting also differs between all-
One of the most basic stunts that every cheerleader will learn is a prep. This is also known as a pre, an elevator or a double base. In this stunt, two bases hold the top or flyer in their hands at shoulder level. In all stunts, a back spot is present to help stabilize the stunt. After mastering the basics, teams can begin to attempt more advanced stunts.
