Cheerleading Captain Speech

Satisfactory Essays
Good evening everyone, I hope everyone is enjoying their night. My name is Keyona and I was the one of the 4 captains chosen for the 2011 Montclair High School Cheerleading Squad. During my 3 years on the squad, I’ve had so many memories, good and bad, that helped me grow as a person. Cheerleading throughout my high school career took part in shaping me as the person I am today. I’d like to congratulate this year’s squad for making it through the season successfully as a new team. There were a lot of ups and downs, but I think we handled each situation well. As the season progressed, I’ve formed bonds with many of the girls on the team that will last me way beyond my high school experience. Some of the girls I think more of sisters than team mates. You guys made my experience more than enjoyable by joking, laughing, and having fun every time I stepped through gym doors. Even if my day was horrible, SOMEONE made me laugh or smile and my frown was quickly turned upside down. I’d like to thank Ms. Rob and Ms. HB for giving me the opportunity to be captain this year. They taught me to have a tough skin and to keep my head up in any situation I face in life. If I had the choice to pick different coaches for the squad, I wouldn’t because nobody could take their place in my eyes. Most importantly, I’d like to thank my mother Lisa White for motivating me and being there whenever I needed her. Even though she punished me every Saturday after each home game with washing loads of dishes from when she made cookies the night before, it was worth it. Overall, the season was unforgettable and I wouldn’t give my spot up as captain for the world. Thank you guys and enjoy the rest of your time here at the

With a new coach, and new spots open for the cheer squad; it was every young girl’s dream to be a cheerleader.

    “Cheer is your pulse, heartbeat, your breathing. It’s rhythm of your life. It’s the expression and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.” –Jaques D’Amboise. Every since I was a little child, I would be astonished and mesmerized by how cheerleaders could captivate your attention on their movements. One simple technique could keep you wondering all night. Questions you would ask yourself would be; how did she do that or how much practice did it take her just to perfect that one single move? I’ve had this urge, ever since I was 4 years old, to be able to entertain thousands of millions of people on the competition dance floor. I’ve always thought that life is about leaving your mark in the world. I feel that…

    As my year comes to an end I can still remember the feeling when they called my name as Miss Berea outstanding teen, excitement and the overwhelming joy. As I began my journey I had many people on my team, Mr. Jimmy, Ms. Ashley and Ms. Brenda and of course my family! Together they all helped me prepare for state. When state arrived I was very honored to be representing Berea and I knew that I would not be here with the help of my pageant family. Mr. Jimmy thank you for always having an honest opinion with me and give me constructive criticisms when I needed it.

Ms. Brenda without you I know I would not the young lady I am today, you helped me with my own self growth and when I thought I was getting overwhelmed and flustered you were always there telling me that it will all be okay. I can say I will miss those late night phone calls when I just needed to talk and you were always there to listen to me.

To my family, mom dad I cannot say how much I am thankful for you, dad you work so hard just so I can be where I am today and never once complain. Mom you have always been there for me through the thick and thin. You take me everywhere I need to go and never complain about even when I know it is hard for you. I want to say thank you both for always being so supportive of me in everything I do, you all are reason I am who I am today, without you I could not have achieved the things I have.

    “5, 6, 7, 8, who do we appreciate? GOOOOO TEAM!!!” That’s a phrase I’ve said quite a few times in my life. As a cheerleader, I tend to say whatever I can to get the crowd pumped, even if we’re down by 30 points in the 4th quarter. Since six years old, I was the most energetic person out on the sidelines, cheering on my home team. I thought that my “cheer career” would last forever. So imagine my surprise when it abruptly came to an end. In the 10th grade, my mother made me quit the cheerleading team, due to a C on my report card, but this turn of events became the best thing that could ever happen to me.…

    To the game that changed my life, thank you. I remember the day that you found me, in a store full of strings and cleats. You helped me pick out a gray and pink stick with pink goggles and a mouth guard. On that day in 2008 you strengthened me in one of the hardest times of my life, when my Dad was on the other side of the world fighting for our country. You have strengthened me multiple times since. You have continued to be the single most consistent aspect of my life my life. You have stood as my outlet, my friend, and my teacher. You have taught me, provided for me, and given me the most memorable of memories. Thank you for empowering me in torn up cleats and dirty uniforms. I don’t think I will ever be able to repay you.…

    I can not wait to go watch you in the Bahamas, best of luck and love you all greatly. My amazing family and friends. Mom, dad, Ashley, AJ, Ashley, Katlyn, and Fammy (just to name a few) you all have shown so much love and support from the beginning of this journey. Many miles traveled together, late night talks, sleepovers, being state roomies, and so much more. I love you all very much and appreciate all that you have done for me. Best of luck Fammy and Ashley at Miss Louisiana USA. My Jimmie and future hubby. God knew just what he was doing when he placed us in the same English class our sophomore year in college. Thank you for treating my like a queen and agreeing to walk this journey I love along side of me, love you past the moon and stars. To the ladies competing tonight you are all very courageous and strong willed for simply being here. It takes a lot of self confidence to not only walk across a stage but to do so in a swimsuit. Only seven of you will go home with a title but all of you will go home with so much more. To the new royalty enjoy this title as much if not more than I did. Do what you are asked to do plus more. Best wishes at state, I will be there in the audience cheering for…
