CHEER EXPECTATIONS & INFORMATION:

 

  • What is our philosophy?
    We try to keep practices fun so the kids want to come back each week. There will be lots of cheering, jumping and stunting with opportunities for cheering at games, as well as other performances and competitions. We have a team building approach and plan to show the parish our enthusiasm!
  • Who can participate? 
    Minis are the 3rd and 4th graders.  Varsity includes 5th-8th graders.
  • When do we practice?
    This is a two season sport from September 1st thru March 1st.  In
    September and October, there will be ONE practice per week. From November through January, we will have TWO practices per week (excluding Christmas Break).  In February, there will be ONE practice per week or none.  This might change slightly depending on facility availability and game schedules.  
  • What are the expectations? 
    Typical practices will consist of drills, cheering, jumping, stunting, choreography, and overall athletic conditioning. There is an expectation to attend practice and games.  There will also be 1 to 2 competitions in the season, with mandatory practices (since it's a team sport with formations and stunt groups), as well as other fun opportunities to perform. If your child is unable to attend, you need to send an email or call the coaches in advance.
  • Where do we practice? 
    Practice will be in the St. Elizabeth Gymnasium.  All jumping and stunting will be on matts, no exceptions.
  • What are the clinics?
    There may be other opportunities for day camps, similar to "Stand Up and Cheer Day" at BSHS.  These will give the kids additional training.  We will provide plenty of notice for any special events.
  • Communication? 
    Practice, games and competition information will all be communicated through the SEAM website (mandatory).  
  • End of Year Banquet?
    There will be an end of year celebration at the end of February or beginning of March, recognizing everyone's efforts.  This will be donated by SEAM.
  • How to Register? 
    Please login to register your child. Registration is opened from June 1st - August 31st. Cost will be $150 per person for Varsity or Minis.   

    This will be through the SEAM League Line Up website at -- WWW.SEAMCYO.COM
  • Other Costs? 
    Children will need to purchase "cheer" socks, shoes, leotards and bows from an online store set up with Kelly's Sports.  The store will be opened for a 2 week period of time in late September or early October.  Items that they will keep after the season include hair items, socks, shoes, leotards, and a participation gift from SEAM.  Items to return include uniforms and pom-poms.
