Yoda Says...

Good you were, yes
But better, you must become- mmm? Yes.
Loud you must be
and positive you must stay
If you are to lead.

Ask yourself...

T-E-A-M Teamwork! W-O-R-K Work- Teamwork!

One of the best ways to avoid drama- will be to constantly be asking yourself, "Am I trying to control the situation? Will other people feel like I'm trying to control them?" If the answer to either of those questions is yes, then you need to think of how you could patiently defer to, or creatively include others instead. THAT'S how you build teams, that's how you build relationships, loyalty, & community. 
That's how you lead- NOT by telling people what to do or how to do it.

No "I" in "TEAM"

Remember, you're all in this together, you're a team. Cheerleading is NOT about being on display, in the spotlight, showing off, or getting attention. It is, and has always been, about encouraging others. CheerLEADERSHIP is not bossy, critical, or controlling leadership- it is encouraging, positive, supportive, collaborative, and cooperative. Problems happen when we forget that and start thinking that we ought to be in charge just because we're so great.


BE+ WITH EACH-OTHER; Build each other up. Challenge each other, don't compete with each other.
BE+ WITH OUR OWN; No matter how any of our players, students, or faculty/staff behave or treat you, ALWAYS be positive in how you treat them, how you respond to them and what you say about them.
BE+ WITH OTHERS; ALWAYS treat fans, players, officials, coaches, students, cheerleaders, and adults from other schools with dignity, respect, and sportsmanship.
