About Hornets CheerleadingWho we are and what we do
Welcome to the Hornets Competition Cheerleading website.
Thank you so much for your interest in Hornets Cheerleading at Hebron Baptist Church. Hornets Cheerleading competes in the Impact competition circuit. Impact Cheerleading is a program that was designed by the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders for churches and Christian schools to use to minister to young people through cheerleading.
Hornets Cheerleading was birthed in 2006, and from the beginning God has blessed this program with tremendous participation, growth, and success. From our first competition season (2006-07) competing with 3 squads and 48 cheerleaders to our maximum of 8 squads and almost 160 cheerleaders, we have won 37 National Championships and are proud to have won the Impact Program of Excellence 8 years running.
The 2011-12 season marked a new chapter in Hornets Cheerleading history with the introduction of the Shining Stars (now the Platinum Hornets), our first ever special needs cheerleading squad. We had 13 girls on this inaugural squad. We anticipate many more amazing and inspiring seasons with this group of truly gifted athletes.
The current leadership continues to proudly uphold a tradition of excellence in both athletics and spiritual development since its inception. God has truly blessed this program with incredible vision, leadership, coaches, parents, and cheerleaders. Our program strives to minister to the cheerleaders and their families through weekly devotions at practice, mission projects, program-wide socials, mentorship, leadership building, and other activities designed to connect us to each other and to Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that we can meet needs, make personal connections, impact our community, teach cheerleading excellence, and show Jesus Christ to those around us through Hornets Cheerleading.
Thank you again for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you will join us and look forward to the many great things in store for Hornets Cheerleading!
How We Define Success
Through the sport of competitive cheerleading we will equip cheerleaders with progressively greater skills, self-discipline, self-esteem, self-respect, and physical fitness.
Through service, missions, and mentorship we will instill an awareness of the need to serve others, a greater sense of community, and the value of leadership.
Through the leadership of coaches and staff, prayer, and bible devotion we will help cheerleaders and their families develop and deepen a personal faith in, and relationship with Jesus Christ.
About Impact and FCC
“We feel that Impact Cheerleading, when maximized to the fullest, will one day be able to influence the next generation of cheerleaders in a community and will train up the future high school and college cheerleaders in that particular community. This will provide a terrific group of role models in our schools.” ~ Cary Coleman, President of FCC (Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders and Impact Cheerleading
Impact Cheerleading is the name of the faith-based cheerleading competition circuit in which Hornets Cheerleading has chosen to participate and compete. We are able to cheer against other similarly organized and funded programs in an environment where the truth of Jesus is spoken about openly, and the love of (and for) God is on display at each and every event.
