“This is the first year we’ve offered this,” said Jessica Edwards, TWC head cheerleading coach. “The squad wanted to offer a service to the community. We wanted to mentor young cheerleaders who are aspiring to continue their cheer careers throughout their college educations.”

On July 13, the final day of camp, camp participants will have an opportunity to showcase what they have learned throughout the week.

“The showcase will be open to parents and the TWC squad will be performing for everyone’s entertainment,” said Edwards. “Each camper will receive a t-shirt to wear for the showcase performance.”

Fifty cent snacks and dollar drinks will be available daily for campers. For more information or to register a child, visit http://www.twcbulldogs.com/f/TWC_Summer_Camps.php or contact Jessica Edwards at 423.746.5331 or jedwards@twcnet.edu.
