Pass The Meg, Spread The Spirit: Shoutouts Across The Field

Football season is upon us and it's time for our favorite athletes to take the field . . . the cheerleaders! At football games across the country, cheer and dance teams have joined together to spread school and community spirit with Shoutouts "Across the Field." This fun program is the perfect opportunity for opposing teams to meet and make friends, and for leaders to be rewarded for their hard work and positive energy.

This season, we want YOU to join us in the movement to encourage spirit, leadership, and sportsmanship through Across the Field.

Let's get started, the challenge is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. ​At the beginning of each game, the coach in possession of the Across the Field megaphone will reward the meg to one of their own team members who has shown tremendous positivity and spirit. 
  2. That squad member then signs the megaphone and writes an encouraging quote or positive note on the side. 
  3. At half time, that cheerleader will cross the field and bring the megaphone to the other team's coach so that they may continue the tradition and spread the spirit in the next week!

As the season progresses, the spirit filled megaphone will travel across your district, region, or even the state and will symbolize spirit and encouragement from all different teams it has touched. Cheerleaders and dancers are the most visible spirit ambassadors for their school, and Across the Field is a great way to make friends with other squads and highlight all the athletes who go the extra mile.

Contact your local Varsity rep to get started, and don't forget to share your Across the Field memories and pictures with @VarsityFashions using the tag #AcrossTheField.
