Practices are mandatory for all cheerleaders. We do have an attendance policy. August vacations are not permitted due to the short timeframe to choreograph and teach a half-time routine and sideline cheers by the end of August. This is a team sport, if one girl misses it has a negative impact on the entire squad.
PRACTICES FOR THE 2017 SEASON WILL START MONDAY, AUGUST 7 , 2017 FROM 6-8 PM.
Practice will be 6-8 p.m. Monday - Thursday until schools starts. Thursdays will include spirit days where all cheerleaders will join together to share, learn and have some fun.
Starting September 4, 2017 practices will be as follows until the end of the season:
Non-Competitive Squads: 2 days per week from 6-8pm (M,TH)
Competitive Squads: 3 days per week from 6-8pm (M,W,TH)
