Beginning July 30th cheerleaders will start the regular practice schedule which is typically held Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Your cheer coach will inform you of any practice schedule changes.
Beginning September 3rd competition practice will begin. Squads will be determined at that time. No additional practice days are added, just a change in the group you practice with and this is due to age restrictions for competition. Girls ages 5 through 8 will continue to practice 6:00 to 7:00; ages 9 through 14 will practice 6:00 to 7:30. You will continue to cheer with your old squad on game days.
Our cheerleaders participate in cheer competition. The date and location is to be determined. They compete against other TNYFL Cheer squads. All cheerleaders must compete in their own age brackets regardless of the regular season squad they are assigned to (some girls cheer out of their age bracket so they can cheer for their brother’s football team). Competition practice will begin September 3rd. Squads will be determined that night. Beginning September 3rd, regular season squads will no longer hold cheer practice. You will practice with your competition squad and no additional practice days are added, just a change in the group you practice with. More details about competition will be announced after the regular season games begin.
Cheer Dress Code
*Cheerleaders must wear comfortable, but not baggy, clothing for practice.
*They should be able to tuck in their shirt so it does not rise while doing tumbles & jumps.
*No undergarments should be visible.
*No shirts showing midriff.
*No short shorts.
*Hair should be pulled back and out of your cheerleader's face. This is for their safety.
*No flip flops.
*Proper footwear is required for safety; we recommend athletic shoes with a good grip bottom not fashion wear or converse style shoes.
*Uniforms must be worn at all games and other official TNYFL events.
*Cheerleaders should come to every game in FULL UNIFORM.
*If the cheerleader does not come in full uniform, they will not be able to take the field. This includes hair pulled up and out of the face, uniform, shoes, bow, etc.
*Once your cheerleader is dropped off with their coach, please do not come get the child or remove the child from the field without the knowledge of the cheer coach. Cheer coaches need to know where every child on the squad is at all times.
For all Participants
Football & Cheerleading are TEAM SPORTS! Absences make planning difficult for coaches and your team. Be at practices & games on time! Special commitments must be brought to the attention of your head coach. Everyone understands situations do arise that will cause your child to miss practice or games but please be sure to inform your head coach if you will not be able to attend.
All participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from practices and games. Inform your coach of any transportation problems. If a parent or guardian will not be staying with your child at a practice or game please inform the coach and make sure they have a way to contact you in case of an emergency. PARENTS MUST PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN PROMPTLY AT THE END OF PRACTICES OR GAMES!!
A regular season game schedule will be provided as soon as it is available to us from TNYFL (the league that we play within). This is normally after the Jamboree game which is held in mid-August. This allows time for all communities in the program to place their teams.
Please be aware that dates are always subject to change during the season. There is usually a game every Saturday with 4 games played at our home site & 4 being played away. Home games are played at Mundy Memorial Park.
Playoffs begin at the end of the regular season. Please inform your coach if you will not be able to attend a game.
We play communities outside of Wilson County so please make note that you will have practices and games during Wilson County Schools October fall intersession/break.
