Cheerleading Completes Successful Camp at UGA

ATHENS, Ga. – The FPD varsity and junior varsity cheerleading programs recently completed a successful stint at the University of Georgia Cheer Camp on July 8-11.

Head cheer coach Amy Kenney says the camp was a great way for the girls to gear up for the upcoming 2015-16 athletic season.

“Overall it was an awesome week where our girls worked hard and made impressive improvements,” Kenney said. “We learned a lot and we’re excited to show our fans in the fall and winter!”

A total of 23 combined varsity and jv campers attended that was taught by Universal Cheerleaders Association Instructors (cheerleaders who cheer at colleges all over the country).

FPD campers learned stunting techniques, cheers, chants, dances, band dances, and various game day materials to use throughout the year.

The Lady Vikings also took home several awards, including an overall Superior Trophy, a first place trophy in Sideline for the Game Day Competition and the Camp Leadership Award.

“I’m most proud of the camp leadership award because that is voted on by every cheerleader at camp, Kenney said. “It shows that our girls worked to become leaders amongst the other squads and reached out to others in a way that made them think that FPD was a place they would want to be a cheerleader,” Kenney said.
