DescriptionThis competitive cheer program begins practices in early July to prepare for Fall competitions. We teach technical cheer fundamentals along with short dance and cheer routines. Cheerleaders learn skills including stunting, tumbling, and a variety of jumps. Each squad cheers practices 1-2 times per week and competes in recreational cheer competitions. While no prior experience is necessary, it is helpful to have dance or gymnastics skills. Cheer teams will also cheer at occasional weekend Golden Eagle football games. (ch)
PROGRAM RUNS: July-Early DecemberSquad Formation: Squads are determined in June. Grade levels may be combined.
PRACTICE: Begins in early July and are multiple days a week until school starts. After school begins, practices are held two nights per week for the remainder of the season.
COMMITMENT: Cheer is the ultimate team sport that does not allow for substitutions of positions, and routines are choreographed early in the season to include all athletes at all times. As such, attendance at practice is vital and fully expected. For the safety of the athletes, missed practices may result in the athlete not being able to fully participate in half time performances and/or competitions.
VOLUNTEERS: As the program relies heavily on volunteers to be successful, parental involvement is necessary. If interested, please indicate at time of registration so you can take advantage of coach training offered early in the year.
FUNDRAISING: The Golden Eagles Cheerleading program will complete fundraisers during the season with a mandatory $100 commitment per athlete. These funds will cover professional choreography and music mixing for each squad as well as team stipend for competitions.
FEE COVERS: Uniform, competition fees, and practice spaces. A payment plan is available.
CANCELATIONS: A $150 fee will be charged for cancellations after April 30. No refunds will be issued effective June 1.
