What is Competitive Cheer?
A team activity that encompasses several athletic disciplines into a routine that is presented at events in order to be ranked against other teams. The disciplines of competitive cheer include tumble, stunts, jumps, dance/motions and performance/ theatrics. As a program we continuously strive to provide a safe and positive environment to bring each athlete to their full potential.
Parents and athletes should be aware that cheerleading is a highly competitive sport that does involve risk. Stunting, tumbling or jumping could lead to injuries that include but are not limited to: pulled and strained muscles, bruises, torn or strained ligaments, broken bones, dislocations, paralysis or even death. The staff will take every precaution to prevent these injuries from happening. Unfortunately, all injuries cannot be prevented. Please make sure to notify Miss Missy if anything hurts when they get home that lasts for more than a day. In the event your child is injured we will take every step necessary to assist in their care.
Regular attendance at practice is imperative for team development and success. This is even more relevant in competition cheerleading when the absence of one person might prevent an entire stunt group from practicing or the whole pyramid sequence from being built. When making an annual commitment to teams with this degree of competitiveness it is paramount that each athlete makes the team a major priority. Missing practices due to poor time management in relation to school projects or other sports and activities is not acceptable.
Athletes need to wear white cheer shoes, dark purple soffe shorts, white Panthers T-shirt and cheer bow. Hair must be pulled back into a ponytail.
The Goal is to be ready to do one competition this year. Date is yet to be determined.
I will choose each week on class day a new cheerleader of the week. This will display pictures of the girls in group and single shots. It will be awesome to recognize each athlete in this special way.
End of Year Showcase
This will be held in the Gym of the front building. Every athlete will receive a trophy to recognize their hard work during the school year.
