  • Games will be on either Saturday or Sunday.  Some travel to nearby cities will be required.

Practice Attire

  • Practice uniforms are required. A group order will be placed and paid for in the cheer package at equipment distribution.
  • No jewelry of any kind is allowed at practice, games or competition. It is strongly discouraged to get ears pierced from June-November, as earrings will need to be removed multiple times per week.

  • Nails must be kept fingertip length for the safety of all teammates. Additionally, nail polish or artificial nails are not allowed at practices, games or competition.
