Islanders attend cheer camp.

In June, Coronado’s cheerleaders attended a three-day cheer camp at the Marriott Hotel in Palm Springs, California. According to Bella Tovar, a member of the varsity team, the cheerleaders woke early each morning and spent the day learning new cheers and dance routines. On the last night of camp, the girls were evaluated on their performance of the chants, dances and stunts.

“We don’t only grow skill-wise at cheer camp,” said varsity team co-captain and CHS senior Katie Silveria. “It’s an opportunity to get to know each other better and welcome new teammates.” Varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders bonded through fun activities including nightly dress-up competitions and a gigantic scavenger hunt throughout the hotel. “Our team really came together as whole,” said varsity cheerleader Hanna Fallon. “Camp helped us get out of comfort zones, which made all our teambuilding activities a blast.” According to Silveria, the most fun part of camp was the closing presentation of “spirit sticks” to the most enthusiastic teams. “Everyone goes insane for those spirit sticks!” she said.

Tovar said that the girls’ stunts improved greatly, as evidenced by their amazing performance at the first day of school’s pep rally. The team is motivated and ready for this season. “Camp made me look forward to making my last season the best it can be,” said Fallon.
