There will be no gum chewing and jewelry shall not be worn during practice or games. Only clear/sheer pink nail polish may be worn on game days.

  • Please make sure that the above practice times do not conflict with other activities.  Cheerleaders are expected to be at each practice and both home/away games.   From August to November, cheerleading must be a priority.  

  • Physical form must be valid for current year and handed in by first practice in order for cheerleader to participate.

  • Parents must pick up their cheerleaders immediately after practice. Girls will not be allowed to leave with anyone other than their parent unless prior notice is given to the coach by a note or phone call.   Coaches are not responsible for providing transportation for your cheerleader to/from practice.

  • Depending on whether the Varsity football team for each squad yields a JV team, cheerleaders may be required to cheer at home JV football games, in addition to cheering for the Varsity football team.

  • Cheerleader may be required to arrive at all games 1 to 1.5 hours before game time.

  • All practices, games, scheduled community events and competitions (if applicable) are mandatory. If you must be absent, you must notify your coach ahead of time.  Absences during the week may result in suspension of cheering during one or more quarters of a game or half-time routine.  Missing and/or late to run-through practices held on game day, will also result in suspension of cheering during one or more quarters of a game or half-time routine.

  • Coaches have their own rules and expectations as to how the girls should behave. We ask that parents respect the coaches and cooperate with them in this regard.

  • There is absolutely no eating or drinking (except for water) in their cheer uniforms. Cheerleaders are not allowed to eat on the sidelines while cheering their game.
