Location Tips

  • Don’t forget your walking legs! The gym is located across the street from the dorms and a cafeteria. It might be a good idea to pack some flip flops in case of rain and you don’t want to get your cheer shoes wet. – Becca
  • Camp at Texas Tech always has that true summer camp feel. There’s a lot of outside space for practicing between sessions. – Victoria
  • Bring some game day props! There’s is always a strong game day presence at Texas Tech. This is a great time to learn how to incorporate signs, poms, and megaphones into cheers so you are ready to go for the sidelines! – Damion
