The James S. Rickards Cheerleading Organization (RHC) prides itself in developing and fostering athletic commitment amongst cheerleaders and pride amongst the community. As a competitive cheerleading organization that is much more than just an extra-curricular activity; RHC provides physical & mental challenges, a gateway to building interpersonal relationships, and the opportunity to be a part of an exciting group that expresses school pride and enthusiasm.
In addition to serving as ambassadors for the school through this organization, cheerleaders gain experience and appreciation of leadership, civic participation, health, fitness and community involvement.
True to Raider pride, members of the distinguished RHC organization remain connected long after they stop wearing the uniform. The longevity of the program is a testament to the dedication each member puts in at every practice, game, community event, performance and competition. Whether in or out of uniform, RHC is committed to living up to the LEGEND brand and continuing a legacy of excellence.
