One Friday night every year, the sidelines at Santana football games get packed as tight as the stands for the Mini Sultans Cheer Clinic.
This year, 89 kids ages three to 13 joined the cheerleaders for a week of practice that culminated in a halftime show during Santana’s game against Mar Vista.
Kelsie Kester, 13, said she has performed in plays before, but looking up at the packed stands at halftime was something else.
“I was nervous at first, but once you got into the feeling of cheering and having team spirit it was pretty fun,” Kester said.
