Ooltewah Middle is proud to be a part of the Big Red Nation
Our school spirit and winning tradition run deep and true with the most all inclusive and energetic pep rallies in Hamilton County!
The OMS Athletics Department is the support system for students to develop athletic and life skills with the cheer program representing the glue between students, athletes, and faculty. 

Ooltewah Cheerleading's main purpose is to support school sports
and local Ooltewah community spirit.

The majority of cheer practices and overnight camps take place May-August

Football Squad in season August-October
Basketball Squad in season October- December

Cheer fees total $650 and are due in two or four payments by the date of summer camp. Summer camp alternates between a beach camp and an university camp. All cheerleaders must attend camp to remain on the squad.

All star cheerleaders must meet commitments to OMS first and foremost to remain on the school squad. OMS does not currently compete. We participate in parades and community performances as well as pep rallies.

Coach Stephens' Bio:

I am proud to say I have been a teacher and school counselor at Ooltewah Middle for 20 years. I began coaching at OMS in 2008. Prior to coaching at the middle school, I was privileged to serve as an all-star cheerleading and tumbling coach as well as a judge for various programs in the competitive field. From 1997- 2002 I worked as a camp instructor as well as a high school and college choreographer for multiple schools in North Georgia, parts of Alabama, and Marion county, Tennessee. I hold NFHS certifications and AACCA credits for stunts, tumbling, and safety.

All squad placements are contingent upon passing grades for 4th quarter and admission to OMS for next 
school years.
