Fireworks CheerleadingSponsor: Jennifer Roberts
This innovative student-run program empowers teens nationwide to include students with disabilities in school-based cheerleading and dance programs. Sparkle Effect teams are truly inclusive: typically-developing students and students with disabilities practice and perform as one team at school sporting events.

The Foley Fireworks is now coming into its second year at Foley High School. The team is working on creating a strong program that seeks to allow all students, regardless of their disability, to feel a connection to the school. Last year the Foley Fireworks cheered at basketball games, the Special Olympics pep rally, and the Special Olympics in March. They are currently working on a routine and you will see us cheering at several of the football home games!
