For Mind Sprint #1 teams had to design a mascot for their USAT team. The teams were very creative with their designs and below are some of the mascot creations they came up with. Some teams even came up with a chant/cheer for their mascot.
He helps our team, he helps us get to Victory! Lets get to work and do the cheer so that we can succeed.
Go dogs go you can do it and everyone will know.
Unpeel your inner roars! Don't slip on your inner fears!
Let's go ziggles! Let's go ziggles! Play so hard, that you might giggle!
Everybody read now! Let's get reading, reading! I wanna see it
