Cheer and dance teams across Tennessee were told they cannot compete this winter season because of the extension of an executive order.
Attendance at indoor games is limited to family, faculty, and athletes, to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The state’s mandate also effectively cancels dance and pep band teams until the end of February.
On social media, State Representative Kirk Haston updated the many who have contacted him about the regulations not allowing cheerleaders to attend basketball games.
He said he asked the Governor’s office earlier this week to consider allowing cheerleaders to attend games, even if they are not allowed to cheer on the baselines.
He encourages anyone who is not in District 72 and would like to see this regulation relaxed to contact their state representative or senator and ask for their support.
