Spartan Cheerleaders Day #: 1 Camptime Theme: Traditions Time designated for skit: 3 mins Skit Description OPTION 1: Spartan cheerleaders will do a funny performance based on the Saturday Night Live skit done by Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri. One guy and one girl will come out on stage and do some crazy cheers and a dance routine in cheerleader uniforms to cheer on an Aggie team. In some alternatives, a Yell Leader will come on stage and be upset asking the two cheerleaders, “How many times do I have to tell you you’re not a Yell Leader.” OPTION 2: This can be a two part skit where the first part is an audition to be a Yell Leader. The two Spartans are obviously out of place with the rest of candidates. They are using “spirit fingers” and other spastic Spartan behavior. Ultimately they don’t make Yell Leader. The second part of the skit comes a few skits later and the 2 Spartans come out and do “The Perfect Cheer” (a dance routine). Afterwards a Yell Leader walks over and sternly explains they did not make the team and they need to stop causing a ruckus on the sidelines. Purpose of Skit (In this section, include how skit relates to Camptime Theme, what you want freshmen to take from skit, and how it relates to their transition to Texas A&M University. Be sure to use Fish Camp Mission and Values as the foundation for planning the skit.) 1. This skit can explain the 12th man as well as explain that A&M has yell leaders rather than cheerleaders and how that sets us apart from other schools. 2. It’s a funny way to touch on the Fightin’ Texas Aggie school spirit and get freshmen pumped up for Aggie athletics! How will you accomplish this purpose? (How will you make sure that the freshmen understand the purpose of the skit, even if the skit does not go as planned?) Explain why we have yell leaders and not cheerleaders and the yells that go with that.
