Sylvan girl gives another reason to cheer for Calgary Stampeders

Demi McKerchar of Sylvan Lake will be busy this summer with the Calgary Stampeders’ cheer team


Demi McKerchar of Sylvan Lake went to an intense audition for the Calgary Stampeders Outriders in the spring and made the team! She has trained in all dance genres at Sylvan Studios with Megan Maisonneuve for 14-plus years and those years paid off.

Not only does she have the best seat in the house, she has opportunity all season to do what she loves — performing. You will also see her at many community events and charities in Calgary volunteering or helping to promote the football club.

McKerchar is a paralegal in Calgary with aspirations to pursue her degree in law.

She is the Outriders’ ambassador for Alberta Children’s Hospital, where she spends much time volunteering.

Come support her and the Outriders in cheering the Calgary Stampeders and “BE READY TO ROCK” for “WHATEVER IT TAKES!” Check out the schedule and meet all the Outriders on their website at and take in a football game in Calgary this summer.

The Outriders will be making appearances this summer and selling their 2015 calendars, which is their major fundraiser to take the girls to the 102nd Grey Cup at B.C. Place and participate in the halftime show with the girls from each of the football clubs in the CFL.

Watch for the girls this summer and show your support!
