    Welcome To Zizzer Cheerleading
     Welcome to Zizzer Cheerleading!

    It is the purpose of the West Plains High School Cheerleading program to promote school spirit, pride and loyalty.  Members will lead by example to promote good sportsmanship and support good relations in the community. We will develop responsibility, teach self-respect, encourage honest effort, strive for perfection, and develop character while stressing the importance of maintaining high standards.  As a team we will realize the importance of setting goals and working hard to achieve them. Members will build self-confidence and take pride in themselves as well as their school.


    Thank you to all who came to our cheer clinic! The girls learned chants, dances, jumps, and stunts! See you in September! 


    The Zizzer Cheer Team recently attended a National Cheerleaders Association camp at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. They learned cheers, chants, dances, stunts, jumps, and gelled as a team.

    Varsity also came home with a Top Team Band Chant Trophy, as well as a Top Team Cheer trophy, a Techanical Award of Excellence for Motions, Spirit Sticks each night, NFHS Credentialing, and a bid to Nationals.
