Blue Knights Cheerleading Program


The St. Louis Christian Homeschool Blue Knights organization was established in 2006 with a single basketball team. Since that time, like-minded families and committed volunteers who are passionate about sports have enabled exponential growth to include several programs, including the Spirit Squad. Stunts, cheers, dances and friendships are all part of this fun and challenging program!

We strive to display Christian character at all times; to train young men and women to love and play competitive sports while honoring God in all that they do; to bring honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with our attitudes, actions and abilities; and to lead others to Him through our words and deeds.

Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works
and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” 
–Matthew 5:16

The Blue Knights organization is much more than a group of sports teams. We are sports-loving, God-loving families with the common goal of drawing closer to Christ through high level athletics and the friendships that are built through striving and celebrating together.


Who can participate in the Spirit Squad program?
The Cheer teams are open to all homeschooled middle school and high school girls ages 12-18.

When does the season begin, and how long does it last?
Pre-season begins over the summer when we hold cheer camps. Our regular season begins after Labor Day with practices. Games begin in November, and the season ends with a national home school basketball championship tournament in March 2024. (Dates and location to be announced)

Are tryouts required to join the team?
Yes, tryouts are held in the fall. Summer camps and intensives are offered in late summer to prepare for tryouts.

Where and when are the events/games during which the Spirit Squad will perform?
The cheer team is expected to travel with the varsity boys’ basketball team to all out-of-town tournaments. Non-tournament games are only attended by cheerleaders when games are within 45 minutes of O’Fallon, Missouri. Games to be attended will be shared by the coach.
