CHEER CAMP: July 31st - August 4th from 2:45-4:15pm in aux gym.
Our season runs from August through mid to late January (depending on when our last competition is)
This year, we will only have ONE tryout. This means that those who make the team are committing to BOTH football and basketball/competition season. We will not have a second tryout. Only 20 athletes will be on the competition floor (per IESA/ICCA guidelines). Athletes not on the competition floor will still be expected to attend practices, learn the routine, give their best effort and cheer b-ball games.
During basketball season, we do 2-3 competitions. Competitions are typically on Saturday or Sundays.
Practices are Monday-Friday after school until 5:00pm
Football/basketball games are 1-2 times a week until 6:00pm.
Consistent practice attendance is expected, as we cannot practice important skills with chronic absences.
