The Minikettes are an introductory student organization that participates in a football game, contest, and spring show performances during the regular academic year. The purpose of this team is to expose the students who are interested in being a Markette to the daily work habits, expectations and responsibilities that are required in Markettes. Being a member of the Minikettes in no way guarantees membership into the Markette Dance Team. Minikette members will be expected to abide by and uphold most of the Markette rules and expectations. This is implemented to ensure that all students understand and experience what would be expected of them should they make Markettes following try-outs.
