Tigers News · Oakville Cheerleaders Showcased on National Stage


The Oakville High School cheerleaders performed in the Citrus Bowl Pre-Game Performance in Orlando, Florida on January 1, 2020.

The teams invited to perform in the pre-game performance are trophy winners from Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), Universal Dance Association (UDA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) and National Dance Alliance (NDA) summer camps, brands under the Varsity Spirit umbrella.

Squad members traveled as a team to Orlando for a week of rehearsals dedicated to preparing them for their Citrus Bowl pre-game performance. The cheerleaders performed in front of 60,000 fans at this popular college football game in the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

The Citrus Bowl has been a college football tradition since 1947. The game gives cheerleaders and dancers the opportunity to perform at the 7th oldest collegiate bowl in the country, as well as the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World® Resort.

Disney Christmas Spectacular Parade at Disney World
Tigers rep on Team Minnie

In late November, Kara Nienhaus (12) and Hailee Schaal (10) are representing OHS Cheer at the Disney Christmas Spectacular Parade at Disney World with Varsity Spirit. As All American Cheerleaders through UCA, Kara and Hailee were invited to lead the parade.  After a day of parade practice, both girls were chosen to be at the front of the parade and on the end of their respective rows so the crowd can see their sharp motions, big smiles and cheer skills. The parade will be streamed live on Facebook tomorrow at 12:30 central time. Like and follow Varsity Spirit to see these two All American cheerleaders shine on behalf of Oakville!
