    all games. Each cheerleader is expected to maintain
    good moral behavior, show cordial courtesy to visiting
    teams, spectators and each other. Squads must be
    respectful of visiting cheerleaders and of the game
    officials. NVHS Cheerleaders are important
    representatives of our school and are very visible to
    everyone!
   Disrespect to any member of the cheerleading staff will
    result in immediate dismissal from the squad, practice,
    season or game at the discretion of the cheerleading
    staff. Inappropriate behavior and defiance will NOT
    be tolerated.

  grades. The coaches will monitor the
