Like many other cheerleading teams, the TVCC team has a secret saying – “CCFC”.
The meaning of this saying is not publicly known and seems to have been part of the team since it first started.
One previous athlete wrote:
“CCFC isn’t something apart from that mat, it is on that mat, it is everywhere, and you must remember that the reason you raise your hands in the air, is embracing everyone else who has been on that stage before you, working their assess off for that win.” – source.
