Cheer Information

Our competitive cheer team will run approximately 8 months, from August 2024 to March 2025. Our teams will practice one to two days each week, anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the age of the team. We hope to start our program strong with 1-4 teams: based off age eligibility and skill level. The program will compete in the later fall months and continue into spring time. We plan to participate in anywhere from 3-8 competitions a season, with a showcase at our building before the first performance of the year; to promote a fun and positive experience. This will allow us to bring in family and community support!
