The ECC Spirit Squads consist of a cheer team, dance team and mascot that perform at home football and basketball games.
The cheer squad is comprised of 12-16 members. They start practicing the week before classes begin and continue into March. The squad performs at all home football games, all home basketball games, the annual Homecoming pep rally and other events throughout the year.
The dance team is also comprised of 12-16 members. They practice two to three times a week from October through early March. In performances, members demonstrate a variety of dance styles including pom, jazz, kick, hip hop and lyrical. The dance team performs at some home football games, all home basketball games and several other events throughout the year.
For both the cheer squad and dance team, tryouts are held in the spring. All candidates must be present to try out for one of the teams. On rare occasions, a DVD tryout is accepted, but only with prior approval from the coach.
