How to say, "let's go!" in Polish

Hello. I was wondering how you would say "let's go!" in Polish. As in if you were at a sports match and cheering for someone like, "let's go Piotr!". If there are any other similar phrases that could be used at sports games/matches I would be interested in learning those too. Dziękuję!

"let's go Piotr!"

'dawaj Piotrek' or 'naprzód Piotrek' or simply 'Piotrek, Piotrek,...'

I've also heard plain "Chodźmy!", "Idź!"

You can say "Chodźmy do kina" (Let's go to the theater), or "Chodźmy już stąd!" (Let's get out of here now), but this cannot be used in the cheering sense. The previous suggestions are correct, even though the Russianism "dawaj" hearts my ear.

But check these cheer leader expressions:

chodziarz macie fajne gadzie z nami nigdy nie wygracie

cola pepsi pepsi cola nasi chłopcy szczelą gola!

P.S. I am aware of the orthographic errors in the examples I posted, such as "chodziarz", "gadzie" and "szczelą". This is why I posted them in the first place.

idziemy, Piotruś!

or

chodź(my), Piotruś!

You`d better spend a dozen years in Poland with natives before you speak up in such threads. :):):):)
Simply speaking, don`t be a ciul. :):):)

Fine, but it's not for cheering in sports, and this was the original question.

If Piotrek is a volleyball player I might cheer him "Asa, Piotrek, asa!", where "as" stands for "ace". And the cheers are most often rhymed - as entire schools try come with new original cheers for a class, a school or a town team.

I liked this one, which appeared in one banner in London Olympic: "Wio, Myszata!" - a private cheer of family of Iwona Matkowska, a wrestler in 48 kg category. All Poles know what "wio!" means; "myszata" might mean "a girl with mousie hair colour", or something. A private joke. The effect was comical. She loved it! :-)
