Just like the cheer team, the Canyon View Pom Squad has started their season after having been stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I asked coach Ted Williams about the challenges his team has faced, and his expectations for the upcoming season.
“We will still be able to dance hopefully during basketball season and competitions.” coach Williams said.
“I want to be able to compete with both JV and Varsity pom this season,” coach Williams said. “We are making sure we cater to all students while preparing for tryouts.”
Everyone gained inspiration from somewhere and Coach Williams started in high school.
“I was on the pom team when I was in high school and I like the dance aspect of spiritline,” said coach Williams
The dancers are scheduled to perform at a number of games this season as long as they are permitted and while that can be nerve-wracking, coach Williams is there to help motivate his dancers.
“I motivate my dancers by helping them understand their own potential for greatness,” said coach Williams.
The team continues to practice each day after school in the hopes of being able to perform again soon.
Hopefully when games start again, pom will be allowed to show their dancer, dancers, and cheers once again.
