SEASON INFORMATION AT A GLANCE

***FUNDRAISING EXPECTATIONS***


Although our program does get financial help from the district, it does

not fund everything that our program requires to run smoothly &

efficiently. All extra competitions that both JV & V compete in

outside of districts, states & Ches-Monts is funded by the program.

Any extra uniforms outside of our school rotation is funded

by the organization. Parties, gifts for both the holiday party

& banquet, transportation, nationals require money.

Every cheerleader/family will be required to fund raise

$500 (sideline only) OR $1000 (sideline & competition team).

This ensures that everyone does their part equally. If that dollar

amount is not met, then each family will be responsible to pay the

difference.  

MAKING JV VS. VARSITY

Can Freshman make Varsity ? Yes

Can Seniors make JV ? Yes

Can I make the competition team, but not the Jv or Varsity team? No

EXPECTATIONS FOR MAKING THE TEAM~

JV:


The squad is not only built with cheerleaders who have skill, but those that

have determination, heart & a GREAT attitude. This team is a

preparatory team for those who are interested in making Varsity or the

Competition Team, but who have not met the requirements yet to make

those teams. This is not to say that you do not have quality attributes, but

that you may need to put in some extra work in order to be prepared for

the next season. If you make the JV squad, you will be required to attend

every practice & game during the football season & basketball season.

You will not be required to attend tumbling; however it is recommended.

The coaches make the decision based on all tryouts and how each

applicant scored. Grades must be in good standing the entire season or

one may be at risk for dismissal or pulled from a competitive team.

NO ONE IS ENTITLED TO OR GUARANTEED A POSITION.


VARSITY:


We have become a nationally competitive team and therefore we have

expectations for the team. Solid Elite stunting Skills are necessary, sharp

motions, tumbling & solid dance skills. Maturity is a must & an

understanding that behavior is expected to be appropriate in every way.

This expectation is for JV too. You can make the Varsity team & NOT be

on the competition team. If it is at your request, then it must be discussed

with the coaches prior to tryouts. If it is the coaches decision, it will be

discussed with you during tryouts or at the conclusion. Attendance is

required for all practices & games throughout the season. Grades must be

in good standing the entire season or one may be at risk for dismissal or

pulled from a competitive team. NO ONE IS ENTITLED TO OR

GUARANTEED A POSITION.


EXPECTATIONS FOR THE COMPETITION SQUAD:


Coaches will pick the competition squad from ALL members. Typically

Varsity members make the traditional competition team, but not all. If we

need more members, we pull from the JV. If a JV has risen to the

challenge, they may beat out a spot of a Varsity member. Our Game Day

team may have alternates or JV members.

We believe that with Varsity comes great responsibility and our season is

longer than others. Be prepared for to work hard. Our season stretches

from tryouts in April to the end of February, straight through with

minimal breaks. It takes great management of time and grades.

You must make THIS TEAM a priority and we will not accept missing

practice, vacations during the season, work taking priority or social lives

over practice, competitions and games. You will have your schedule well

in advance and will rarely be changed unless something arises. 

AS A WHOLE FOR THE PROGRAM:

It is proven that our students do better during the season with everything

that it demands, then they do in the off season. Every year we see a

decline in grades once the season is over from students who do not

participate in a spring sport. Coaches demand school work to be handled

& they stay on top of the team during the season.

In regards to academics: academics come first and you must always

maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. You can seek teacher help every

day after school, so there is no excuse for not staying on top of grades.

We prefer a GPA of at least a 3.0. because we take pride in our combined

GPA. If at any point you do not maintain this OR this includes the

weekly eligibility list, you WILL run the risk of being removed from the

squad permanently & replaced.

Everyone is expected to commit to the full season. If there is conflict,

please talk to the coaches in advance to possibly work your issue out. Our

season is a perfect example of how busy the college life is. It prepares

the students for the next chapter of how to budget & manage their time

well.


If you are in trouble with ISS or OSS, coaches have the right to remove a

player from the team. Coaches have the ability to dismiss anyone who is

not meeting the expectations of the program.


In regards to actual skill coaches are looking for the following:

Standing back-handspring

Running back-handspring

Standing tuck

And working on at least one other running pass

Toe-touch

Herkie

Hurdler

Pike

Knowledge of advanced elite stunts (whether flyer or base). Tight arm

movements & facials with a focus on precision! Excellent enthusiasm,

drive & heart to be here!


This program frowns upon quitting during the season. If you quit, you

you will not be permitted to return until after an entire school year.

Coaches promote sitting down & discussing what issue you may be

having & trying to work them out. Honor the commitment & not penalize

your team.

Coaches at East talk & ask why someone quit a team, so keep your value

& do the right thing. Finish the season & if you don't want to tryout out

next season, then we can accept that.
