Our cheer program welcomes all athletes grades K-8th (2024-2025 school year grade level).

Practice Dates & Times:

Practices are tentatively set to commence starting July 22nd. Practice dates, times, and locations for July through September* are:  

           Mondays 6 to 8 pm at Yukich Field

           Thursdays 6 to 8 pm AT THE EP SPORTS COMPLEX**NEW THIS SEASON**

**We are excited to announce we have signed a contract for indoor space at the start of this season. As we all know, last season the heat and rain caused a few cancellations. This will benefit the cheerleaders so much!

*We anticipate moving all practices indoors, at a location TBD, as we head into the unpredictable weather of October and November.

 Please note: Sideline cheer & Mighty Mites will have less/shorter practice schedules. For all competitive levels, we anticipate dropping the Monday practice however this cannot be determined unless we have full commitment from all athletes at the start of the season. Your Head Coach will make the final decision on this.

 

Attendance policy for all competitive cheerleaders is slated to start at the beginning of the school year this season. The policy will be sent to you by the end of June. A signature will be required to attend choreography camp. Choreography Camp is MANDATORY for all competition cheerleaders. Excessive absences and/or missed choreography camp can be grounds for dismissal from the competition team (without refund). Competitive cheer is a team sport and requires that ALL athletes are present at all practices in order to be able to safely and successfully compete at the level necessary to reach our goals of an ICA state bid and, ultimately, top 3 placement at the state level.
