Waukee Cheerleading is a multi-squad program dedicated to promoting the Warrior Spirit and supporting athletic teams at the Waukee High School and Prairieview. This program has successfully transitioned from a small, two sport cheerleading program into its current nine squad, three sport cheerleading powerhouse.
Currently, Waukee Cheerleading has three Football Cheer Squads – Varsity, Jr. Varsity and Freshmen, three Basketball Cheer Squads – Varsity, Jr. Varsity and Freshmen, two Wrestling Cheer Squads – Varsity and Jr. Varsity, and a Varsity Competition Cheer Squad. A try-out process is conducted in the spring for Football and Competition Cheerleading Team and in the fall for Basketball and Wrestling Cheerleading.
Over the past several years, Waukee Cheerleading has developed a strong reputation statewide for its high level of skill both in the area of tumbling and stunting. Waukee has participated in numerous Iowa Cheerleading Coaches Association events such as the Iowa High School State Cheerleading Championships, the Iowa Cheer Honor Squad and the All-State Cheerleading Squads. Waukee’s Competition Squad has earned six top 10 finishes at the State Cheerleading Championships since 2008 including State Runner Up in 2011 and two State Championship Titles in 2012 for its Cheer and Stunt Squads. In addition to its State Titles, the Competition Squad has competed nationally at the NCA National High School Cheerleading Championships most recently placing 10th in January 2013.
Waukee’s cheer program is active year round by training in the off-season and participating in numerous community service events throughout the area.
