Go Big or Go Home! We're Bringing It to our first summer camp!

Who's in the house? Mini Dons in the house! — The Acalanes Sideline Cheer & Competitive Sport Cheer Teams are leading their first 5-Day summer training camp! Incoming Middle Schoolers 6th-8th will learn precision cheer skills, technical terms in the sport of cheer, along with novice stunting techniques.
