Fayetteville, NC -- The Fayetteville State University cheerleading program successfully held their 16th Annual Bronco Cheerleading Camp on Saturday, July 16th at Felton J. Capel Arena.

The Bronco Cheerleading Camp emphasizes personal, confidence, coordination and body control, simple dance numbers, and basic stunt skills. Participants experienced lively music, spirited cheers, and fun performances.

The camp had an impressive attendance of 121 participants in the groups of ages 4-8 (32 PeeWees), ages 9-12 (40 PreTeens), and ages 13 and up (50 Teens). The theme for the camp this year was "How Can You Slay" using S.L.A.Y. as an acronym (Strive for Excellence. Love Yourself and Others. Always Give Your Best. Yearn to Learn).

There were several prospective FSU freshmen for fall 2016 as well as middle and high school cheerleading varsity and junior varsity cheerleading squads from Hoke County High, North Mecklenburg High, Rocky River High, Southeast Halifax, St. Paul's, Scotland Neck, South Robeson, the Charity Cheering Jackets, Cheer Extreme from Raleigh, the JaZZy All-Stars from Blackstone, VA, and numerous individuals from the Bronco family and Cheer Phi Smoov Alumni family.

"I was especially honored to recognize one of our participants from the FSU family who has been coming since she was five years old and now represents the first camp participant who has gone through each camp age group to now a prospective FSU freshman this coming fall 2016," said cheerleading advisor Dr. LaWanda Miller. "I send special thanks to our very own Ms. Alumni Queen, Carlitta Moore, and Cheer Phi's very own Miss FSU queen, Bria Perkins, who brought their royal regalia to take pictures after the camp. I also send special thanks to our alumnus Mr. Bronco Mascot, Daniel Watson, for using his short break from his military duties to perform in the mascot suit," cited Miller.



The Bronco Cheerleading Camp looks to inspire confidence and provide guidance on performing before an audience. During the closing performance, camp participants held an exhibition for their family and friends.
