CBU cheerleaders host Little Lancers Clinic

RIVERSIDE (Feb. 12, 2014)—California Baptist University cheerleaders hosted the Little Lancers Clinic Feb. 8 for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

Participants met in the cheer gym, located in the CBU Recreation Center, and practiced with the cheerleaders from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“We wanted to teach them a little bit about the sport of cheer and build relationships with some of the youth in our community,” said Tami Fleming, head cheerleading coach. “It was a great way to have fun, get exercise and teach these Little Lancers about cheer.”

The students received a CBU Cheer shirt and demonstrated their new technique at the Lancer women’s basketball game with Azusa Pacific University that evening.

“We were excited to host these young athletes here at CBU and teach them a little bit about CBU cheer,” Fleming added. “We hoped to get them excited about college some day and, hopefully, they will all become Lancers.”
