The day of a wrestling meet is a cheerleader's time to shine. You're there to support the team and motivate the crowd and having a great selection of cheers ready for your squad is key. Take some of these cheers, chants, and yells to the wrestling mats with you and you're sure to have a ton of fun.

Let Them Know You're Here

When it's time to take to the mats, let the crowd know that you're the cheerleaders that will not go unnoticed.

Watch out we're here,
And we're ready to cheer,
We're blue, we're white,
And we're ready to fight!
watch out we're here,
And we're ready to cheer,
We're white, we're blue,
And we're gonna cheer for you!

Get the Crowd Excited

Getting the crowd into the groove of the match can be tough at times, especially when the meet isn't going well for your school. Whether the team's doing good or bad, these cheers can get fans into the spirit.

A simple yell can sometimes be the most effective. This one's interactive between you and the fans and can be repeated a few times to maximize the impact.

Who are you yelling for?
(town) X (team name) X!
Submitted by: Rachael Kelley

Toss some claps and stomps into this cheer and it can work for any moment in the match. You can even use it at pep rallies and other school events.

Hey, hey here we go,
Johnstown Trojans we are the best
Spell out our letters J-M-S
Yell it J-M-S!

Show Off the Team Spirit

Cheerleading is all about being the leaders in team spirit for your school. Show off that pride with a few cheers customized just for your wrestling team.

Our team is back, we are ready to fight
Purple and silver let's win tonight!

The "don't mess around" cheer has some great claps and stomps to go along with the chant. It's definitely a great one to get the fans moving.

Lions don't mess around uh huh (clap twice with uh huh)
Lions don't mess around no way (clap twice with no way)
Lions don't mess around, they just get down (do an 8 count combo of turns, claps and stomps)

When you're looking for a cheer that's really fun and truly unique, turn to this little rhyme.

Sliding down the banister, landing on a cactus;
We think the other team needs more practice!
Sliding down the banister, landing on a flower;
We think the other team needs more power!
Sliding down the banister, landing on a pin;
We think our team's gonna win!

Cheers for the Wrestlers

When a wrestler is on the mat, pull out one of these cheers to encourage him to go for the pin and the win.

Takedown, Reversal...
Or go for the Pin!
Stay off the bottom...
In Order to Win!
You Gotta Ride 'Em, Roll 'Em, Get that Pin!
Come on Mike (wrestler's name), Let's Win!

Cheerleaders are great with wordplay and the "upside down" cheer is a perfect example.

When you're up, you're up;
When you're down, you're down;
When you're up against the Indians;
You're up (clap clap clap clap)
side (clap clap clap clap)
down (clap clap clap clap)
Up side down!

The "Be Aggressive" chant is a popular one for cheerleaders of every sport. This one is a slight variation that is both familiar and unique. Just make sure you don't forget the double "G" and "S" when spelling "aggressive" (it's easy to do).

Be aggressive,
Be aggressive,
Be aggressive!
