Forks High School cheerleaders recently have returned from Universal Cheerleaders Association camp, where they excelled in every way. They even brought home the coveted Banana. In order to win the Banana they had to follow camp rules, show up early to snag the front row by the stage and make sure the UCA staff knew their names before day one was over! Winning the Banana at camp is the ultimate achievement because it is voted on by the UCA staff. The FHS group set a great example for the entire camp.

Four FHS senior cheerleaders tried out for UCA-All American and won, receiving a trip to London. They are Brooke Jacoby, Alisha Chase, Sabrina Collins and Alex Spear. Two of the girls also were asked to try out for UCA staff.
UCA’s goal is to inspire leadership on and off the field and the camp is focused on the traditional role of cheerleading, believing that the primary purpose of a cheerleader is to support athletic programs and lead the crowd before and during games. Cheerleaders play an instrumental role in raising, leading and maintaining school spirit in and around their communities. They are leaders in building general morale at their school.
Congratulations to the entire cheer squad and their coach for representing Forks in such a positive way.
