SWEETHEART SMILE. Shaking her poms while on the field, freshman Daisy Skelton smiles as she stands on the victory line.

The captain tweets her whistle as the drill team walks synchronized. The ladies link up arms and begin their iconic high kicks in their white field boots. A mesmerizing sight for a little girl watching the halftime routine.

 The Sweethearts are an award winning drill team representing Willis with unity and pride. Besides being the face of Willis, these ladies perform at all football games and attend competitions from local areas to nationals. For any little girl who wishes they can be a Sweetheart can now experience it for one day. The Future Sweetheart clinic is scheduled for September 23rd with individuals performing the routine on September 29th at the home football game. 

The Sweethearts have been hosting this event for years now, and the reasoning behind it is more than just a dance on the field.

The Sweethearts have been putting on the Future Sweetheart Clinic for several years now. It was a great way for our girls to interact and inspire the next generation of Sweethearts,” Director Kaylee Trotter said. “We plan on hosting the Future Sweetheart clinic for years to come, as we have more participants come each year.”

For current Sweethearts, this clinic is the reason why they were inspired to join the team as they got older.

“The clinic inspired me to do Sweethearts because they treated me with so much kindness and it was such a fun time being with people I’ve been looking up to and seeing them on the field,” senior Savannah Moore said. “Being able to dance with them made me realize that I knew I wanted to experience this once I got to high school.

With the Sweethearts leading the clinic they hope to bring the same gratitude and kindness they received and give it back to the girls.

“I am super excited to be one of the sweethearts that is going to be hosting the Future Sweetheart Clinic. Me and my mom are both helping with the clinic and I think it’ll be a lot of fun to see all the amazing young girls that admire the Sweethearts as I did when I was their age,” sophomore Annabelle Grimm-Smith said. “I love being able to see the growth of a small admiration turn into a lifelong passion.”

 

Interested individuals can register on our website, willissweetheart.net. Any K-8th grade student is welcome to come, as no dance experience is needed to participate.
