    Default Principal Forces Cheerleaders To Wear Sweats Under Skirts

    Principal makes cheerleaders don sweats under risque skirts

    By Cameron Smith

    When San Jose (Calif.) Piedmont principal Traci Williams decided to actually enforce a longstanding ban on miniskirts at the school, her school-wide dress-code sweeps found a very surprised target: The school's cheerleading squad. Now members of the Pirates' spirit team are facing a season wearing sweatpants under their uniforms during school to avoid violating the dress code, a measure that they're none too pleased about.



    As first reported by the San Jose Mercury News, the move to make cheerleaders wear sweats under their uniforms was enforced so they could fall in line with a dress code that requires all skirts or shorts to stretch lower than mid-thigh. As you can see in the photo at right, the Piedmont cheerleaders' custom-tailored uniforms come relatively close to achieving that benchmark, but Williams declared that they didn't quite hit it, leading to the necessary adjustments.
    Administrators feel that they have a valid reason for stepping up enforcement of the miniskirt ban. While standards in teen clothing in school can vary widely from state to state, Williams described the attire worn by many of the students at Piedmont as ranging from slightly inappropriate to nearly lewd.
    "Pockets are hanging out," Williams told the Mercury News of skirts that had been identified in recent clothing sweeps. "Cheeks are hanging out. We don't want them bending over."
    While the cheerleaders feel the school administration should ease up on its enforcement of the rule, the Mercury News reported that plenty of other students had been sent into a special building until their parents arrived with a change of clothes, all because their skirts were deemed to be too skimpy.
    The difference, of course, is that the Pirates cheerleaders are wearing a custom-tailored, $300 school uniform during classes, all as part of a drive to improve school spirit on game days.
    "This is really unfair to us," Piedmont senior cheerleader Antonia Bavilacqua told the Mercury News. The skirts are still OK for games, just not during school. "We're just sad and hurt. It's our school colors and spirit. And they're making us feel like outcasts."
    Now Bavilacqua is leading a charge to try and get Williams to ease up on her enforcement of the rule, citing both a prior case in Florida, common sense (another cheerleader cited the weather concerns, saying "It's 95 degrees outside"), and fashion sense as reasons to allow the cheerleaders to wear their uniforms in school one day a week.
    After all, as one of the squad's other senior cheerleaders said, wearing sweatpants under a miniskirt is, "dorky."

    Yet it doesn't appear that Williams has any plans of budging on her ruling, at least for the moment. If anything, her commitment to enforcing the miniskirt ban for cheerleaders and the rest of the school was only reinforced after attending the Pirates' football game against Evergreen Valley (Calif.) High last week and surveying their cheerleaders' uniforms.
    "Their skirts were mid-thigh," Williams said. "If our cheerleader's skirts were that long, this wouldn't be an issue."

    Why is this News? Even in high school I thought the females skirts were too high. I thought it was obvious. So why is this News so many years later?

    Cheerleading skirts used to fall about mid-thigh. Now they're crotch and ass grazers.

    Sweatpants are a bit stupid. How about leggings?

    And if they are this concerned with looking dorky, the absolute first thing they need to shit-can are those stupid ass Nelly-Olsen sized bows on top of their heads.

    They should just wear those shorts (don't know what you call them) that you can wear as liners under other shorts or skirts for athletics. Kinda like bike shorts used to look, but shorter.

    How about they order new fucking skirts that are an appropriate length and everyone could shut the fuck up and get on with their lives?

    that happened when my daughter was in cheer. The girls complained when the principal told them to wear sweats under their skirts. they ended up compromising and using cheer shorts, which are kind of like spanx. they look a little like mens boxer briefs but are a bit shorter.

    I thought cheerleading skirts had sewn-in panties attached?

    There are already cheerleading panties underneath. But you're still seeing a fuckload of skin. They might as well be wearing bathing suit bottoms, cause that's what's next. Maybe they should just get to wear bikinis all day with the school letters on the tits and ass.

    Our cheerleaders had to wear sweats under their uniform, even on gameday. They could remove sweats for the game itself, but that was all. It always seemed a little gross that all this booty would be hanging out otherwise.

    Same at our high school cherry. Maybe the cheerleaders need to remember what their purpose is in the first place and while flashing flesh might be getting part of the crowd and the players "inspired", I don't think their main purpose is to "be sexy" or give the players erections in the middle of a play.

    I remember that the cheerleaders in my high school only wore the sweats underneath after it really got cold. We had a strict dress code that included no shorts or skirts more than 2" above the knee, but it didn't apply to the cheerleaders, who wore skirts so short you could see their bloomers. I don't think they should wear prarie skirts, but I don't think those cheer shorts are such a bad idea.

    i wish people would stop pretending cheerleading is a real sport. they're just there to look pretty and distract people during breaks in a game, like having chicks in bikinis at car shows. that's why they wear short skirts. making them wear sweatpants defeats the purpose of their entire existence so they might as well just get rid of the whole thing.
