    OCMS Braves Cheerleading   

    Thank you for your interest in becoming an OCMS Braves Cheerleader! Being a member of a school related sport has many benefits, but of the utmost importance is the representation and relationship athletes are able to build within the community. Therefore, we set high expectations within our cheerleading program for students to be ambassadors of our school: in the classroom, at athletic events, and within the community. As an active member of this program, work ethic, attitude, teamwork, and performance are qualities we expect from our athletes, whether at practice or on the field/court.
