This year Wheeler
Athletics will sponsor a tailgate party before each home
football game. The Wheeler tailgate party is a social
event / pep rally that will be held in the south end of our bus
port. Tailgating, an American tradition, involves playing loud
music, participating in leisure games, and grilling food.
Tailgate parties usually occur in parking lots at stadiums,
before games. Many people participate even if their
vehicles do not have a tailgate. In schools and communities
throughout the United States, there are athletic departments,
coaches and parents of student athletes who rely on pre-game
tailgating parties to build community and support for their
program and team. Wheeler’s Tailgate was developed to energize
the Wildcat Nation and establish a strong core of support year
every home Varsity Football game at 4:30 PM
Port Bay - adjacent to café, Fieldhouse, and bus pavilion.
This Friday, August
29th’s Tailgate will include:
A Hawaiian Theme – The 1st 100 students will
receive a Hawaiian Lei
--The 1st 100 students will receive a Wildcat Nation T-Shirt
--Wildcat Pride Drum Line performance
--Cheerleaders painting faces
