DSCC is excited to partner with Rainbow Gymnastics and Cheer. Under the direction of Kate Thompson, Rainbow Gymnastics and

At your try-out, prospective cheerleaders will meet Ms. Fultz and the Rainbow Gymnastics staff. Each candidate will participate in an
interview and receive an overview of the DSCC Cheer Program requirements. Participants will then work with the Rainbow
Gymnastics and Cheer staff and DSCC Cheerleaders to learn and perform a cheer. They will have the opportunity to show off any
special talent they would like to share. For more information and to schedule a try-out, contact the Office of Student Services at
