Firecrackers, barn doors, and battle cries, these cheers are filled with creative spirit and that's why cheerleaders love them. When you're looking for a really creative new cheer for your squad, add one or two of these to your list. Most work for any sport, yet we also have one that's just for the volleyball court.

A Firecracker Cheer

Who doesn't love a good "firecracker, firecracker, boom, boom, boom" cheer? They're a ton of fun and always a guaranteed hit with the crowd. This one is a fun play on words and cheerleaders sure do love the way it ends!

Open up the barn door, kick out the hay,
We are the girls form the USA!
Turn on the radio, and what do ya hear?
Elvis Presley doin a cheer,
Firecracker, Firecracker, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Firecracker, Firecracker, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Boys got the muscles, coaches got the brains,
Cheerleaders have the sexy legs and we win the game!

We're Number One!

This cheer works particularly well for football because it's an outdoor sport. It's a great cheer to have on your list for those days when the weather is being less than cooperative on game day.
