HISTORY

10 Months for 2 Minutes

The history of the Linn-Mar Poms began in 1967 when tryouts were held. Following the tryouts, 12 girls were chosen to perform at pep rallies and basketball games. They practiced in the school halls and made their own uniforms. The girls were told it would not last long as the fad would fade.


Now, more than 50 years later, the Linn-Mar Varsity Poms are a National Powerhouse! Since 1992 LMVP has been crowned State Champions 34 times and have 10 Regional titles. Since 2003 they have placed in the top 10 at the UDA National High School Championships 22 times, including three finishes in the top three. In 2018 the Linn-Mar Poms made school and state history by placing 2nd in the nation in the Medium Varsity Pom category.


Linn-Mar Pom Alumnea have gone on to dance for college and university dance teams as well as professional sports teams.
