When is the uniform fitting?
If you cheerleader was with us for Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021, they do not need to attend a uniform fitting. *However, if your cheerleader has grown out of any piece of their uniform, you will want to attend to gain an idea on what size they do need. We host a uniform exchange group every season that we are not getting a new uniform (which is Fall 2021). When swapping with other cheerleaders, you'll want to know what size you need. There are several options for the uniform exchange and more info will be shared in June.
For NEW Cheerleaders, our uniform fitting will be Saturday, June 12th from 2-4pm @ Twin Creeks Country Club.
What uniform items do I need to provide?
Socks: White No-Show/Low-Ankle
Practice Shorts: Black, White, Grey, Pink and Timberwolves Green are acceptable colors. Academy Sports & Outdoors offers different brands at a great price.
Solid Black Leggings: Worn under uniform skirt when weather is cold.
Cheer Gear: These will be available for parents to purchase through our website after registration closes.
Homecoming Mum *optional (Fall season only)
How is squad placement determined?
Squads are determined on age/divison, as well as through skill assesments. With our league size and growth, we divide squads within divisions taking into consideration skill level requirements.
Can my younger child be on the same squad as my older child?
We highly encourage for cheerleaders to be on the same squad as those within their age group/division. If a parent would really like for their younger child to be on a squad with their older child that is in a different age group/division, they are eligible to be a Mascot.
As a Mascot:
They will cheer the 1st half of games only. A parent must be present to supervise their younger child. During games, the Mascot will need to be picked up at the start of half-time.
They will not be eligible to compete at competitions.
Please note that the Cheer Director holds the right to re-zone the mascot to their own age group/division if it's not a good fit.
Can I coach my child's squad?
Yes! We have several opportunities at all levels for coaches, assistant coaches and pack parents. Please contact the Cheer Director (email@example.com) for more information.
