Cheerleaders do not have to try out for the recreational squad. Cheer teams will be determined after the football players have been drafted and assigned their teams so that siblings can be aligned. Requests are accepted by emailing, Megan Morgan at
. Please be aware that all requests are considered but cannot always be accommodated and team placement is final. The recreational teams will cheer at all football games with the expectation that the cheerleaders will remain at the games from beginning until end.
Camp week for recreational cheer teams start on July 26, 2021. A detailed schedule will be posted as soon as the football schedule is announced by the league.
The first week of practice of recreational cheer teams is choreography camp week and it is mandatory that your child attend this week of practice to allow them to cheer in the half time routine at the opening day football game.
Any absence during choreography week must be approved by the Cheer VP.

Always wear tight fitting clothing AND rec cheer shoes - sports bra, compression shorts, tight tanks/tees, etc. to ensure safety while stunting/tumbling. Hair must be pulled up and absolutely NO JEWELERY (including earrings) or FAKE NAILS! Bring PLENTY of water - one small bottle is never enough in the summer heat. Wear/bring sunscreen/spray bottles/bug spray/small towel. It gets hot with no shade. It's good to have a bag to carry all your cheer items in. You will also need to bring your poms and anything else specified by your coaches/team mom.

All registered cheerleaders are welcome to join our competitive teams and must sign up during registration. Team placement is based on the number of registrants, age for divisions, and ability. The first day of competitive cheer practice is July 19th, 2021. This is camp week. The cheerleaders will have their tumbling and stunting assessed, taught their routine and given their spots this week.
Therefore, ALL MUST ATTEND camp week to be on the team.
No exceptions. NO ABSENCES PERMITTED!
*Practices and competitions for competitive teams are mandatory. Absences must be approved by Cheer VP*
***Please note*** Cheerleading is a team sport. When even one cheerleader is missing, it prevents the entire team from practicing stunts and running their routines correctly/safely.
A detailed schedule will be posted on our website under the cheer link as soon as it is determined. Competitive teams attend around 6 competitions and the season runs from July to November. Fees to attend competitions will be collected once competitions are set. Typically, these costs are around $80-$100. This covers the entrance and registration cost of each cheerleader for the competitions we attend throughout the season.
Competitive cheerleaders must also purchase a second pair of cheer shoes strictly used for competitions and indoor practices only. It is encouraged to wear your recreational cheer shoes to comp practices for tumbling and stunting purposes.
**All girls on the competitive teams are required to fully participate in the recreational team that they are placed on as well or risk removal from the competitive team.
