HOW MANY TEAMS WILL THERE BE?

Team determination will be based on the numbers of registrants in each grade group and the availability of appropriate coaches.

ARE SPIRIT PRACTICES MANDATORY? 

Grades K-1 are not subject to the below attendance policy but absences at any age are discouraged.

Attendance policy for Spirit cheerleaders in grades 2nd and up: 

To fully participate, attendance at the August practices is required. Instruction in cheerleading is progressive and missing practices can result in a cheerleader missing important stunting instruction.  Consistent attendance leads to better technique and a reduced risk of injury. 

Stunting instruction/evaluation will take place during the first week of practice in August.  If a cheerleader misses any practice during the August schedule, the cheerleader will be given an ‘alternate position’ in a stunt group and performance within a stunt group during the season will be at the coach’s discretion. 

The only excused absences are for religious holiday observance or illness

Cheerleaders who miss a weekly practice after school begins may forfeit their stunting position for that weeks’ game or upcoming performance.

Cheerleaders who miss the pre-game warm up will not be allowed to stunt in the halftime routine

AFTER LABOR DAY, WHEN DO WE PRACTICE?

One weekday evening outdoors and one hour before games

Weekday practice will be announced as soon as possible, pending field availability.

CHEER FOR FOOTBALL GAMES?

All teams will cheer a football game each week.  Football games begin Saturday September 3, 2022

We look to have the GAME SCHEDULE distributed during August pre-season.

Flag games will be Saturdays and at Mountain Park, Basking Ridge.

Tackle games will be Sundays and the fields are TBD.   

All cheer teams from 5th grade and up will cheer some Saturday games and some Sunday games.
