Sideline Cheer

Welcome to Calvin Cheer! We are a new club sport at Calvin getting ready to support Calvin Athletics! Calvin Cheer strives to embody values of excellence, sportsmanship, and community.

  • Excellence: Though Knights Cheer is a club sport, we believe that we are called to strive wholeheartedly for excellence. Through our regular training, including physical conditioning, we hope to build a team that values fun and athletic performance in equal measure.
  • Sportsmanship: Like all of Calvin’s sports teams, we believe in the power of good competition. Within the context of this competition, however, we also believe that we ought to act in a manner that is respectful towards all. Knights Cheer publicly represents Calvin University’s varsity sports teams, and as such, all members are expected to maintain a positive attitude towards all teams at all times. Negative language will not be tolerated. We aim to create a culture that is supportive to everyone – to our Calvin teams, to opposing teams & fans, and to each other.
  • Community: This team is a place where everyone belongs, regardless of gender, sexuality, race, or religious affiliation. We believe that every member of Knights Cheer deserves to feel welcomed and respected. As such, all members of this team should “be devoted to one another in brotherly love…outdo[ing] yourselves in honoring one another” (Romans 12:10). As Christ first loved us, so we will love each other – through fellowship, encouragement, and supportive training.
