    Cheermasters & Anti-Cheermasters


    The Kiltie Band has a long tradition of organized cheering in the stands. Every year, the band has a cheermaster, selected from the Trombone section. The cheermaster's job is to select and organize cheers/heckles from the Kiltie Band, drawing from the resource of the hidden and ever secret Cheermaster's Book.

    The Kiltie Band also has a short tradition of organized anti-cheering in the stands. For every year the band has a cheermaster selected from the Trombone section, the band has an anti-cheermaster selected from a different section of the band. The anti-cheermaster's job is to select and organize cheers/heckles from the Kiltie Band, drawing from the resource of the widely-published and ever notorious Anti-Cheermaster's Notebook.
