SQUADS

We will have three squads - One Sideline Squad, and two Sideline Dance Squads (SDS)

Sideline Cheer is a good introduction to cheer life and is great for those who want the cheer experience without the requirements and commitment of SDS. Sideline will focus on cheering during the games. They will not do dance or stunts. Therefore, they practice less and there is less of a requirement to be at every practice and every game.

Sideline Dance Stunts (SDS) - SDS squads will focus on cheers, stunts and dance. Girls who want to be in SDS need to commit for the season. Both the dances and the stunts require more time to learn and have very specific lineups and roles therefore, it is required that girls in SDS attend every practice, the entire practice and every game. SDS Squads are broken up by age.

VOLUNTEERS

We are a volunteer run organization and parent involvement is required but there are many ways to support: Concession stand, after game snacks, end of season party.
