McKinley Technology High School Cheer (MTHS Cheer)

MTHS Cheer is a comprehensive cheer program. Our athletes are expected to maintain good academic standing while supporting other teams through their seasons; compete in local and national cheer competitions; perform community service as a team.  Athletes are also encouraged to invest in themselves and their team by attending regular tumbling classes.  

Liz Lancaster (Coach Liz), Head Coach, and Dionna McTaw (Coach D), Assistant Coach, are strongly invested in their athletes and McKinley Technology High School.  As proud products of DC Public Schools, Coach Liz (Wilson High School) and Coach D (Banneker High School) understand the importance of investing knowledge and time into future generations.  They have over 20 years of experience in cheer and dance, and use that knowledge to prepare their students for the collegiate level of cheer. 

The MTHS Cheer program runs from August through May.  Tryouts are traditionally held at in late May.  If your McKinley student has an interest in cheering with MTHS Cheer, please contact the coaching staff at for further information and requirements.
