Game day traditions: We do not perform at any games! But a couple traditions we have a couple we always do before going on the floor; sit in a circle, holding hands, listening to our music to visualize. We breathe 3 times all together while standing in a circle. Yelling at the top of our lungs our chant for that year, 1-2-3, EDT is one we use for full team pump ups!
