You can use cheerleading games as team-building and get-acquainted exercises for squad members. You can also find online computer games designed for cheerleaders, as well as console video games.
Little Sally Walker is a cheerleading game in which all of the cheerleaders form a circle and take turns going inside it to perform. They chant, "Little Sally Walker, walking down the street, she didn't know what to do, so she stopped in front of me and sang, 'Hey girl do your thing, do your thing and switch.' " Each girl does a short dance or jump and then switches places with another girl.
You can set up a cheer obstacle course around the gym floor using megaphones and pompoms. A squad member leads each girl through the course blindfolded.
