Cheer Program Description

Pom Poms – This level accepts children in Kindergarten and 1st Grade. This level does not travel to other towns. Practices are held Monday through Thursday during the month of August and usually run about one hour. Games are on Saturdays at Peterson Field and last about 90 minutes. All Pom Pom cheerleaders are issued a uniform. Parents are responsible to purchase a bow and briefs.

Pre-Clinic through Varsity Cheer – These levels accept children in 2nd through 8th Grades. Mandatory practices usually begin the first week of August and are typically held 4 nights per week until school begins. Once the school year begins, mandatory practices are held before each game and during the week at the discretion of each team's Coordinator. Football cheerleaders’ primary role is to cheer the football teams on to victory. Football cheerleaders also perform a routine at halftime of each game. Football games typically begin Labor Day weekend and end sometime before Thanksgiving. Attendance at games is mandatory. Most football games are played on the weekend (Friday night through Sunday); however, occasionally football games are held during the week (Monday through Thursday). The Cheerleading program provides a uniform which typically consists of a shell, skirt, jacket and warm up pants. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing supplemental items considered to be part of the standard cheerleading uniform. The supplemental items for Grades 2 through Grades 8 cost approximately $130 if a cheerleader has no attire items from the previous year. Every attempt is made to maintain consistency in cheer attire requirements year after year to keep incremental costs to a minimum.
