In light of recent events regarding the cheerleading squad tryouts at Hanover Park High School, the school administration would like to help clarify inaccurate information being circulated in the press. It is important to understand that the cheerleading program at Hanover Park does not compete in interscholastic events. The guidelines that govern cheerleading are, and always have been to develop knowledge, positive attitudes, teamwork skills, leadership and athletic skills. These core values have remained the same to the present. Source

I'm torn here. On one hand, I think high school sports should accept anyone who wants to be on the team and hustles in paractices and games. That doesn't mean everybody gets to lineup and play on game days, however. My football team in high school always had a few guys on it that never saw a single minute of time in the actual game. They were playfully nicknamed "coach" by those of us in the game because they usually ended up as coaches assistants, water and towel boys, game footage recorders, etc.
