Members of the same cheerleading squad have a special bond. Not only do they count on each other for moral support during competition time, but the roles of bases and fliers cause them to put their lives in each others hands. Designating secret-sister weeks helps foster this bond. Girls pick someone's name out of a hat and that girl is her secret sister. Exchanging secret-sister gifts provides a chance to show appreciation for each other.
Every squad has its own team colors. Encourage your secret sister to display her colors by making or buying her team-colored jewelry. Purchase beads and even a charm with the team mascot or a sterling silver pom pom. Construct a bracelet, necklace, key chain, book mark, zipper pull or earrings from your beads. Your secret sister can wear her team colors with pride every day and think of you.
Being part of a cheer squad is an experience that will provide memories to last a lifetime. Long practices, overnight trips for competition and seeing each other through struggles and meeting goals together are all memorable achievements. Construct a scrap book loaded with photos and stories of the squad's endeavors. Or, paint a picture frame in team colors, glue on small cheer-related charms and frame a squad picture for your secret sister.
Finally, you don't have to spend a lot of money to show your secret sister you care. Homemade goodies are just as appreciated, because you put your time and effort into making them. Bake your secret sister cupcakes, frosted with team colors. Use icing to spell out letters on each cupcake, making up her name. Fill a small gift bag with team-colored jelly beans, hard candies or M&Ms. Make up a healthy snack sack with power bars, protein snacks and vitamin drink mix to keep her fueled up for competition. Decorate the bags with ribbons, glitter and your secret sister's name.
