Keene High School Cheerleading

Welcome to


in Keene, New Hampshire - home of the Blackbirds!

The sport of cheerleading is over 100 years old--
the first cheerleaders promoted school spirit
at a Minnesota University football game
on November 2, 1898.


Pat Lincoln serves as head coach for both the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams. She can be contacted through the Keene High School Athletics Department at 352-0640, leaving a message for the Athletic Director at extension 3078. Or, call her at 876-4030.

Coach Lincoln may be assisted by one or more volunteer Assistant Coaches.

The Keene High School Clubs & Sports page
lists the sports schedules for fall and winter.


The teams' usual training schedule is Monday through Friday, two hours after school each day. Extra training is required as state and other competitions approach. The fall season starts in the middle of August--approximately two weeks before school starts--and usually ends before Thanksgiving. The winter season begins after Thanksgiving and usually ends at the beginning of March. Cheerleading is a sport that involves flexibility, precision, timing, cooperation, and lots of hard work. Instead of throwing a ball, cheerleaders throw a person. Instead of running down a court or across a field, cheerleaders tumble across it, doing intricate flips.
