- Each Jenner practice ends with a shout-out circle, where players pass praise to their teammates for positive acts they noticed during practice.
- Jenner ends every practice with the numbers game. It’s always a team favorite. During the numbers game, teams develop cheers for one another, trying to one-up the other team to see who can get louder.
