Cheerleading has evolved into a serious sport at the high school level.

And just like in other sports, the more time you put in on your sport when you’re young, the better off you’ll be when you reach the prep level.

On Saturday, Nov. 3, Zion-Benton High School’s cheer squad will hold a Kiddie Kamp for girls currently in school grades K-8.

This is the kind of event that can pay off for the campers down the line.

Cost is $30 and camp will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Girls will learn dances, cheers, crowdlines, and jumps from the Zion-Benton High cheerers, who are probably the best sideline cheer squad in all of Lake County.

Camp will be held in the Pearce School gym (22nd Street and Eschol Avenue) in Zion.

Campers need to bring lunch and a water bottle, and they will receive a T-shirt, snack and admission to a Zion-Benton High home boys basketball game.

The admission ticket is important because the campers will perform what they learned at a Z-B hoops home game in December.

Parents who want to register their daughters should stop by the athletic office at Zion-Benton High on 21st Street.
