Cheer Squad members must possess stunting and tumbling skills. Cheer members must attend all practices and events as scheduled. The team practices throughout the school year to work on skills and to prepare for performances.

The team aims to build sportsmanship, character, structure, support of fellow athletes, crowd involvement at events, and spirit to Carlow’s student body.
In its fifth year at Carlow, the cheer program is focused on developing the members with the elite skills of cheerleading with an emphasis on participation, teamwork, safety and responsibility.
