From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, the San Marcos High School Cheer Team is holding their second annual Cheer Clinic fundraiser.

Open to anyone interested in cheer (ages 5 to 18), the clinic is taking place in the SMHS Dance Room (behind the gym) and the cost is $45 per person.

The cost includes learning cheers, jumps and a short dance routine; meeting friends; learning to work as a team; a cheer bow; two shakers (small pom poms); and water and a snack.

All clinic participants will have the opportunity to perform the dance routine at the San Marcos High School junior varsity basketball halftime on Feb. 11.
