Young cheerleaders take part in Junior Thundering Herd Cheerleading Clinic
HUNTINGTON -- Proving pint-sized pep goes a long way, some of the Tri-State's youngest cheerleaders got a chance to take to the floor alongside Marshall cheerleaders during the pregame entertainment of Saturday's matchup against UAB following a one-day cheerleading clinic for kids ages 4 through 10.
Approximately 80 young cheerleaders in the Junior Thundering Herd Cheerleading Clinic had the opportunity to learn techniques from the Marshall cheerleaders during Saturday's four-hour camp. Participants also received a cheer T-shirt, a photo with Marco and admission to Saturday's men's basketball game.
This year marked the most participants for the camp, said Kelsey Waybright, Marshall's cheerleading head coach.
She said the experience always is a memorable one.
"First, they get the one-on-one time with the cheerleaders, and they get to learn sideline cheers and dances cheerleaders do at the games before they get to meet Marco," Waybright said. "In addition to all of these memories, they also learned techniques and skills they'll be able to put on display."
