Seneca Valley Eaglettes Pom Squad
Purpose of the Poms
The primary goal of the Eaglettes is to promote Seneca Valley High School and its athletic teams by increasing school spirit and awareness. The Eaglettes also have the responsibility of providing entertainment at sporting events. In addition, as with any athletic team, the Eaglettes' goal is to increase self-esteem within the team, promote consistent academic performance, and encourage leadership qualities and life-long social skills.
Who May Join
In order to become a member of the Eaglettes, you must maintain an academic minimum 2.0 GPA (2.3 GPA to perform), possess enthusiasm, have a desire to be a part of the team, enjoy performing for an audience, and be willing to work hard and to your full potential.
Although being a member of the Eaglettes is a rewarding and fun experience, it is also a tremendous time commitment (mid-August thru February) and can be expensive. This organization requires the earnest efforts and sincere dedication of the athlete and also the parent or guardian.
Clinics and try-outs begin in May.
Performances include routines or "dances" that incorporate technical dance (ballet, jazz, hip-hop & funk), precision moves, and marching & maneuvering. The Poms perform at the following events:
- Pre-game and halftime at all varsity football games
- Select home boys and girls varsity basketball games
- Pep rallies
- Community events as requested
Planned fundraising for the pom season includes:
- Joe Corbi's Pizza sales
- Youth/Junior Pom Clinic and football game performance
- Candy sale
- Seneca Valley Eaglettes Pom Exhibition
The pom team will be selling advance tickets to competitions 2 weeks prior to the actual competition date. Check the morning PA announcements for information.
