NKYA Cheer

2023 Bandit Cheerleading Team

Who We Are

Founded in 2014, the Bandits were formed as recreational cheer that competes at a high level of competition. The Bandits are currently able to accept registrations from athletes living in the Conner School District. Athletes are from grades pre-K through 8th grade. 

With a focus on cheer fundamentals, the Bandits also enforce strict guidelines for athletes to excel off the field in school and community.
