As you may have heard, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) has included competitive cheerleading as a sport beginning officially in 2015.  With many variables still in flux, the Islip School District has decided to continue its practice of non-competitive cheerleading during this fall’s football season.  Since the winter season has been designated for competitions only, we will not be competing in that season.  Tryouts for the fall season will be conducted starting Monday, August 18 at 8 am in the High School Gymnasium.  All students’ grades 9 through 12 who are interested in trying out should contact the Health Office for a physical by August 1.  Students will not be able to tryout unless cleared.

Spirit cheer will not include pyramids, tumbling or twisting down maneuvers.
