**Volunteers Needed! Interested in Coaching? or helping one of our committees? Join us for a rewarding and fun experience:)**

FALL SEASON: The Fall Cheer Season will run from Aug 19th – early November. The approximately 12 week program will include: Safe Stunting Clinic, 2 Cheer Clinics at Kinder, 2 local competitions, game day cheering, practice shirt, Cheer Bow, two hour drop off practices twice a week with our experienced cheer coaches and MUCH more!!

Our dedicated volunteer coaches will help to expand your young athlete’s skills and confidence! We will go over sideline cheers, motions, jumps, stunts, choreography and some tumbling. Tumbling is an important skill for cheerleaders – it is STRONGLY encouraged that your child participate in a tumbling class to advance their skill and safely execute the competitive routines. Any registered SPGH Cheerleader may attend our exclusive YEAR ROUND class at ALL SEASONS ATHLETICS every Sunday 2:00-3:00 pm (as of this posting current cost is $15 per class). This is a fun class and great way to build skills and team spirit.

SEASON EXPECTATIONS:
The Severna Park Green Hornets (SPGH) Cheerleading Fall Season is from August – Mid November. Dates subject to change to due to play off, championship games or advancing in competitions.

FALL: We will be cheering at football games (per Anne County we are required to cheer 80% for eligibility to compete) and attending 2 local competitions. This equates to about 8 games either on a Friday night or Saturday morning/afternoon (occasionally Sunday); most games will be at Kinder Farm. The competitions dates are:

October 28th
November 5th

All parents and spectators must pay to enter the venue and are responsible for travel.

*Please be sure you will be able to meet these dates and requirements before registering*

PRACTICES
Each team will practice TWO nights a week for 90min to 2 hours (dependent on the age). There will be a 3rd mandatory practice the week before competitions at a local gym. Practice locations are at local schools, due to their after school programs, practice will start after 6pm, some locations 6:30 or 7pm. Head Coaches will advise practice locations and times in the Fall. Practice is closed to parents, siblings and friends. There will be Team Moms in addition to the Head and Asst Coach to help chaperone and attend to any urgencies. Please be on time for practice and pick up and inform your coach or team mom of any change in pick up arrangements.

New this season (please mark your calendars!):
ALL squads have a Safe Stunting Clinic on JULY 22nd (Mandatory for 10u & 12u)
10u & 12u Cheer Camp Aug 19th & 20th

*IMPORTANT* Cheer is a unique sport in which EVERY position is in constant play and EQUALLY important - WE NEED FULL ATTENDANCE AT PRACTICE AND COMPETITIONS.

You must inform the Head Coach of any scheduling conflicts or illness. Continued tardiness or missed practice may result in being removed from the competition routine and only involved in Game Day Cheering. This policy is out of fairness and safety to the entire squad and respect of our volunteer coach’s dedication and time.

REGISTRATION FEE:
Per Anne Arundel County Rules age is determined as of 9/1. Divisions are based on 6u, 8u, 10u, 14u.

Fall 2017 fee: $200

FAQ: Why is Cheer such an expensive sport? Cheer has competition entry fees, music & licensing fees, rental of professional gym space and other costs that add up. Also, are registration numbers are drastically lower than the hundreds that participate in other SPGH leagues, there are less registrants to cover our fixed costs. When you divide the registration fee by 12 weeks it is about the same as other hour weekly classes around town but you get SOOOO much more!

UNIFORMS:
In addition to the registration fee a $100 Uniform Deposit Check will be collected. This will include the Uniform Shell and Skirt. The check will be held and returned once the clean and damage free uniform is returned at the end of the season (no later than 11/30). The deposit check will be cashed if uniforms not returned or returned stained/damaged. Please be sure the below additional requirements are purchased prior to your first practice (allow for shipping and resizing returns).
*You can check the local B/S/T consignment page for any used gear* Link
