Cheerleading

2021 Reminders!

  • Beginning september, practice times will be modified for school.

  • Games Schedules have been posted! Please reach out to your coaches through TeamSnap with any questions.

  • Registration is closed!

  • Please read through the expectations for the season.

Practice at home! Our new Practice @ Home page provides our cheerleaders with the basics and videos/words of our cheers so they can continue to perfect their skills outside of practice. NOTE: The page is restricted to our current 2021 Cheer Squads. Please let your coach(es) know if you are having issues accessing the website.

Family/Participant Expectations

Parent/Family Expectations

  • Parents should have TeamSnap downloaded on their phones for immediate updates on practices and games. Our "Cheer @ Home" page is restricted and intended to be viewable only to our cheerleaders. If you are having issues with viewing this page, please contact your child's coach!

  • Volunteers are critical to the success of our practices and game days! For practice, we need parents for bathroom breaks.

  • Uniforms must be cared for and returned in the same condition that they were provided to our cheerleaders.

Practice Expectations

  • Please arrive to practice at least 5 minutes prior to our start time to set up (5:55PM). Also, please arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to the end of practice so coaches can begin the dismissal process.

  • At the end of practice, cheerleaders are NOT permitted to meet their parents/guardians in the parking lots. Parents/guardians MUST come to the practice site, be seen by a coach, and then the child will be permitted to leave.

  • Please bring water/sports drink. NO food is permitted. Cheerleaders should have dinner before practice, but if there are any scheduling conflicts with this, please contact your coach.

  • While we do not have an official practice uniform for our cheerleaders, each participant should be in appropriate athletic attire, such as a snug t-shirt with cotton shorts, and sneakers (not your game day sneakers). Examples of unacceptable practice attire are: barefoot/flip flops, bathing suits, crop tops, baggy shirts, etc.

  • Hair must be tied away from their face and nails must be trimmed short

  • No jewelry or earrings (speak with your coach if ears are newly pierced)

  • In case of emergencies, parents/guardians should stay local if they are not staying at practice.

  • Cheerleaders will have very brief breaks and should use the restroom prior to practice.

Game DAY Expectations

  • ALL Cheerleaders are expected to attend and cheer at games, including away games. If there is a scheduling conflict, please contact your coach in advance! We must have a designated number of cheerleaders cheering at games according to strict AYC guidelines so this is critical for planning.

  • Cheerleaders must be in full uniform, with approved sneakers. If you have any questions about your uniform, please contact Coach Courtney ASAP.
