Good cheers and chants for a school pep rally include chants that were popular at rallies in past years, chants that follow school traditions and creative cheers. Chants should always be attention-grabbing and should involve the crowd, according to Inside Cheerleading magazine.
Cheerleaders and pep rally organizers can also create themes for rallies. These help involve the crowd and make rallies more fun. They can also be a good source for chants, as cheerleaders can create slogans and routines that involve the theme. Cheerleaders, players or coaches can also organize skits based on a rally theme, as recommended by the Universal Cheerleaders Association.
When organizing a pep rally, creativity should play a central role. A touch of the unexpected helps keep the crowd going.
