The Pom Pon Squad at Quincy Notre Dame is a year round sport. Try-Outs are held every April and summer practices start right up in June. During the school year, the squad practices Monday nights and varies days before and/or after school. The squad performs at all home varsity football, boys soccer, and boys basketball games, as well as parades and various community service projects. Traditions include hosting an after school camp for grade school girls before a home football game and holding a winter camp for grade school girls with a performance at a basketball game.
The squad attends UDA summer camp every year. This past summer we attended camp at ISU in Bloomington, where the girls received 2nd place with their home routine and a Superior trophy for the routines they all learned at camp.
The QND Pom Pon Squad also competes through the Illinois Drill Team Association (IDTA) and the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). The 2012-2013 squad placed 1st in State out of 9 teams, with their Class A Pom Routine at IDTA. They were back to back State Champions in this category. Also again this year, Pom/Dance Teams have been added to be a part of IHSA competition, where last year’s team place 14th out of 65 Class A teams around the State.
This year will be full of new challenges as we work with a squad that doubled in size from last year and also prepare to compete in both IHSA and IDTA competitions again this year. But the year looks to be another promising year for this talented group of young ladies. With hard work, dedication, a tight bond, and high expectations, the squad will show what Raider Pride is all about and represent our school on our journey back to STATE!
